Actually I believe this is the original Banyan Fig or Ficus bengalensis. Traders, called Banyii in old Hindi, used to sit under the very wide spreading canopy of this tree and hence they became Banyan trees. There is one in the USA at the Thomas Edison summer home in Fort Myers, Florida that covers over an acre and now has to be regularly cut back as its too big.

Leaves are very big and will be tough to reduce but defoliation and a bigger bonsai style can help fix that problem and show it without leaves.
