Kalanchoe gastonis-bonnieri

Looks like a Kalanchoe hybrid …,

The color and markings look a lot like K. gastonis-bonniery, but the shape of the leaf shape looks more like daigremontianum.

Could be a Kalanchoe species

Thank you …. As per Gurcharan ji’s post, the underside of the leaves has purple blotches, the above plant has purple blotches on the upper side….
