Trolled for making money from training rather than trading
Sundar was heavily trolled by netizens for making a huge sum of money from youtube advisory videos regarding stocks and stock market training courses than actual stock market trading. In an interview, he expressed his resentment over making more money through training rather than trading and said,
Why does it matter? At the end of the day, all we have to do is to make money. Is there any government rule that says a person should not be making more money in training than in trading? The two are independent businesses. If Virat Kohli is making more money by doing commercials than by playing cricket, does it matter? The money is coming from all legitimate means.”
Criticised for offensive comments

Later, Sundar posted a video on his YouTube channel in which he apologized for using disrespectful words and said,
I lost my patience. I am sorry. People say I should not have used certain unparliamentary words and I do agree. Of course, no need to say I did not mean it. I tweeted him only for the purpose of argument to make him understand the concept. Otherwise, I did not know whether he had a daughter or not.”
Investigation launched by SEBI
In November 2022, the Securities and Exchange Board of India launched an investigation against P R Sundar, his son, and his company Mansun Consultancy Pvt Ltd for allegedly providing consultation services regarding investment measures without getting registered with SEBI. As per SEBI guidelines, if any person is found to be engaged in providing investment advisory services without getting registered with SEBI, appropriate action can be taken against him/her, under the SEBI Act, 1992. In an interview, Sundar talked about being under the radar of SEBI and said,
This is a two-year-old matter when I was associated with a Sebi registered advisory company. Instead of taking payments from the company, my firm had collected payments on their behalf. We received the first show-cause notice in May 2022 and another in this month. We are assisting Sebi with all the details.”
