(Bloomberg) -- Many analysts are predicting that the cash crunch at China Evergrande Group is unlikely to become China’s version of the 2008 Lehman Brothers crash. The world’s richest banker begs to differ. 

“Evergrande seems like China’s Lehman moment,” Uday Kotak, chief executive officer and founder of Indian lender Kotak Mahindra Bank, said in a tweet.

Kotak also likened the crisis at Evergrande to the collapse of India’s Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services Ltd. The Indian government chose him to oversee the restructuring of the distressed shadow lender three years ago after it defaulted on debt repayments.
