That could be also. Peacock plant is of the genus Calathea, which is very similar to Maranta.

This looks like it might be a specie of Maranta, many of which are commonly grown as foliage houseplants. These are often called 'prayer plants', but the specie is known for the production of arrowroot. If your friend's plant is more of a tree than a small potted plant, it could be one used for agriculture rather than ornamental purposes. If you get in touch with a nearby botanical garden, they should be able to identify for you.
