Ashneer Grover shot to fame after the massive success of Shark Tank India Season one. He became a fan favorite on that show in a very short period. But sadly, he did not return for the second season, and he talked about it openly on the latest podcast with Ranveer on TRS. When asked about the reason, he told that since he was the one who ‘dominated’ the show in Season 1, it would be unfair if he continues to steal the limelight in the second season as well.
Ashneer Grover recently released a book named Doglapan: The Hard Truth about Life and Start-Ups.
He gave an insight about a story in his recent promotional interviews for Doglapan and told how a Bollywood actress almost got him ‘divorced’.
He didn’t provide any more detail and said that to know more about the incident, people must read his book. Doglapan has a chapter titled ‘How Kiara Advani Almost Got Me Divorced’. Just as Ashneer told, there is a chapter in his book Doglapan titled ‘When Kiara Advani Almost Got Me Divorced’.
In the chapter, Ashneer mentioned an incident of meeting one of his fellow founder friends at his office. He said that he and his wife Madhuri, in a casual conversation, asked his friend if he was tying the knot soon.
His friend had replied,
“Kisi movie star se baat chal rahi hai”
On probing further Ashneer found that his friend had engaged the services of a matchmaker
“Seema Aunty kind of matchmaker who specialized in Bollywood alliances.”
The former shark then continued,
“When I asked him who his options were, he mentioned Kiara Advani as an eligible match.”
After recalling what his mother recently told him regarding, he has grown a bit too big for his shoes, Ashneer quoted,
“Aap ko pata nahi hai market mein aaj kal kya chal raha hai. Aaj ke din shaadi ho rahi hoti na toh Kiara Advani ka rishta aata aapke bete ke liye”
According to Ashneer,
“Madhuri’s face fell on hearing this—she did not find the conversation funny at all. I could see an instant change in her body language. We were to travel to Mumbai for the shoot that night. On the aircraft, Madhuri sat tightlipped and wouldn’t speak to me, until they served food, and I nagged her to eat it. It was as if a sudden dam had burst. ‘Tumhe Kiara Advani se shaadi karni hai ?’ she raged, beginning to take off her jewellery.”
Apparently, the shark tank ex-judge was totally ‘caught off guard’
He was ‘blasted’ by his wife for more than 30 minutes, about how he was a complete nobody when she married him. She also emphasized that Ashneer only agreed to do Shark Tank because she asked him to.
“Through this tirade, I sat with my hands held out, holding her jewelry, which she had unceremoniously dumped on me. From the corner of my eye, I could see an old gentleman who had his headphones on to watch a Netflix movie take them off to listen in on the live movie playing out on the aircraft.”
His friends used this story for pulling his legs after knowing about that incident. Also, Kiara is reportedly ready to tie the knot with her long-time boyfriend Sidharth Malhotra in the next few months.
