Doglapan author and Ex-Shark Ashneer Grover is known for his sly digs and recently he did it one more time and this time his target was the media.
The Third Unicorn founder recently posted a portrait with his spouse Madhuri on Twitter and Instagram. On Twitter, Grover wrote a note for the press, requesting to use the pic attached to the tweet.
Well, Ashneer finds it really offensive that after losing 15 kgs, the press is still using his older fatter self. For the entrepreneur, visual appeal matters to a great extent.
His tweet went viral at the speed of light and here’s how Ashneer’s fans reacted to his tweet.
Press : You may write anything you get paid to write about me. I won’t complain. I have one request – please use this picture – nothing is more offensive to me than seeing my older fatter self after losing 15 Kgs ! I don’t even read the stories like most – visual appeal is imp !! pic.twitter.com/Z8HiDzlFuF

Meanwhile, one user took a dig at Anupam Mittal stating he tried hard to be like Ashneer, but despite his business acumen, the shark couldn’t fit in Grover’s role.

Commenting on Ashneer wearing a branded t-shirt, one user jibed –

Calling out the media, one user urged not to use Ashneer’s older pics.
Reporters Ye doglapan mat karro bhai 🔥

Another user wrote that this is exactly what the media’s gonna do – use his older pic. This is exactly what social media users started doing after his tweet. People do those things more curiously which they are told they aren’t supposed to do, isn’t it?
haha. now press is going to do all ulta and they will deliberately use your older pictures even more 😀

Meanwhile, Ashneer’s caption on Instagram was a bit different. A very ‘gyan’ type remark about happiness. The former BharatPe boss writes that happiness makes one look good.
Of course, the dude’s looking dashing with his beaming wife. Happiness makes you look good more than the brands you wear, Ashneer philosophizes, while donning a Gucci.
Here’s how the netizens reacted to Ashneer’s instagram gyaan –
