@certik I was thinking of inheriting the exp class from pow class as opposed to creating a new file or inheriting from function. What do you think?

don't make the mistake SymPy made. Make exp(x) just a shorthand for pow(E, x)
it's better to special case E in one place (pow) than to special case exp everywhere in the code that tries to deal with pow objects

@asmeurer Thanks for the suggestion
I was suggesting a similar thing when we inherit it from pow and finally the exp function would just be pow(E, x)
The Exp class can be in referred while adding functions like rewrite_as_exp in trignometric classes
