As we all know, Ashneer Grover gained massive popularity from Indian television after his gig as a judge in Shark Tank India Season 1. He was known for his no-filter and straightforward attitude and savage punchlines. He made headlines more often this year and he has become the talk of the town yet again.
Recently, the former BharatPe founder and TVF Pitchers’ judge Ashneer reacted to Uber’s claims of having driven 4,5 billion in India this year. He mocked the claim made in Uber’s annual report with a Twitter poll.
Uber Technologies, Inc. (Uber) is a company based in San Francisco. It provides several services and the most prominent one is undoubtedly their cab services.
Uber revealed its annual analysis this week in which it said that in the year 2022, Indians spent 11 billion minutes traveling in its cabs and covered as many as 4.5 billion kilometers distances from Earth all the way to Neptune.
The official statement of the company quoted,
“The year 2022 saw Indians start travelling big again, and cities swinging back open for business after the pandemic. Uber trips during the year covered as many as 4.5 billion kilometres, which is the distance from Earth all the way to Neptune, the last planet in the solar system since Pluto got kicked out of the team”
Reportedly, Uber India’s president Prabhjeet Singh shared the report on LinkedIn where he stated that Uber had covered “4.5 billion km or the distance to the last planet on the solar system”
Ashneer Grover slammed the report and said that Uber should have addressed cancellations and bad ride experiences instead of bringing in the solar system and Milky Way into the report
By sharing the Uber President’s post, he wrote,
“Who needs to take an Uber to the Moon? What customers have been facing are cancellations and bad cab experiences — address them head-on. You guys are going down the same path as WhatsApp with these messages”
He also tweeted with a poll,
As per Uber – they made trips as long as Milky Way in India. So Mars ki sawaari aap kiske saath karna chahenge? @UberINSupport @Uber

The options included Elon Musk’s SpaceX, Uber Bhaiya if not canceled, and koi airport hi pahucha do (just drop me at the airport).
Soon after, Prabhjeet Singh deleted his post after receiving negative feedback.
However, Ashneer didn’t stop there,
when the Uber President, Prabhjeet Singh deleted his post, the Shark Tank India season 1 judge wrote back on LinkedIn,
“Arre waah — 100 feedback comments aa gaye to Prabhjeet Singh (Uber India Country Manager) ne apni post hi delete kar di (Oh wow — when 100 feedback comments came, Prabhjeet Singh deleted his post). Country Managers seem keener to manage their image than their business”
One thing is very clear that Ashneer is definitely not happy with Uber India’s services.
