Cultivated ?? Araliaceae ! Could be a Brassaopsis !

Yes, looks like cultivated.

The inflorescence is not clear.
Can you send a cropped clear image showing the flowers?
It somewhat appears close to images at https://efloraofindia.com/2015/04/06/fatsia-japonica/, but I am not able to see such large drooping inflorescence on the net.

Or can it be

Sending you the cropped image of inflorescence. But Sorry, this one too is not very clear.
 The links sent by you are showing small  and erect inflorescences. But in my photos, they are drooping and bit huger.
3 images- 1 high res.

I guess it is not Fatsia japonica (Thunb.) Decne. & Planch. !

it’s Tetrapanax papyrifer
