As we all know, Ashneer Grover isn’t part of Shark Tank India Season 2 and as soon as the second season went on-air, ex-shark from season 1 opened a war of words.
Ashneer Grover who is known for his raw and blunt behavior and talks since his season 1 stint is not present in the ongoing season, but he revealed a lot of things in the latest podcast with famous YouTuber Ranveer.
Ashneer considers himself a ‘builder’ and not someone who collects ‘rent’.
In an appearance on The Ranveer Show Podcast, Ashneer quoted,
“Jab tak tha, I had great fun. Pure show mein masti kari. Thankfully it was received well, pehla season hi kaafi successful hogaya. Mereko lagta hai, in some sense, I was a part of creating a Rs 10,000 crore franchise… I feel happy ke maine ek Rs 500 crore saal ki franchise Sony ko bana ke de di.”
“Kyuki pehla season is the toughest season to crack. Agar pehla season hi nahi chala, agli baari toh channel wale hi aapko slot nahi dene wale, bhool jao. Pehla chal gaya, ab aapka Rs 500 crore ka ad revenue har saal aa raha hai, aapka Rs 10,000 crore ka dhanda hai, aaj ki date mein. Woh bana ke de diya, usme mera nuksaan hua fayda hua koi matlab nahi hai”,
the ex-BharatPe MD said.
When asked if he’ll watch the second season, Ashneer revealed that he has unfollowed all his co-sharks from season 1.
“Nahi. Mereko lagta hai separation clean hona chahiye. Jab main Shark Tank mein nahi bhi tha, season two mein, jitne bhi sharks they, unko maine social media se unfollow kar diya. Yaar ab woh tumhari game hai, tum khelo. Main kyu har roz dekhun ke Shark Tank ki shoot pe behind-the-scenes kya chal raha hai? Ab meri life ka part hi nahi hai, toh main kyu past mein rahun? Jab se clear hogaya tha ke main season two mein nahi hoon, maine baaki sharks ko unfollow kar diya tha.”
In the same interview, Ashneer also revealed that he never prefers watching films that are poverty based because if he has to he can look for them on the streets.
“Mereko yaar Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara achchi lagti he, Dil Dhadakne Do bahut achchi lagti he… mereko na movie mein gareebi nhi dekhni…thoda Karan Johar type trait he… woh dekhna he toh main sadak par utrunga toh dikh jaayengi na.”
“Zoya Akhtar ki movies mein hota kya he ki 8-10 characters hote he, but uss 8-10 characters ke apne importance he…aisa nhi ki ek central hero he aur uske around picture chal rhi he… toh woh mereko bahut interesting lagta he,”
