Following the tremendous success of Shark Tank India Season 1, Ashneer Grover has gained widespread recognition. On the show, he quickly became a favourite of the audience. But regrettably, he did not appear in the newly published second season for an unidentified cause. In a recent interview, when asked about the cause, he explained that since he had “ruled” the first season of the show, it would be unjust for him to do so again.
Asher Grover, a previous Shark Tank India participant, had just published a book titled Doglapan: The Hard Truth about Life and Start-Ups. In recent promotional interviews for Doglapan, he has teased a tale about a Bollywood starlet who nearly led to his “divorce.” He didn’t give any other information or identify the actor. People will need to read his book, he stated, in order to learn more about the incident.
Doglapan has a chapter titled ‘How Kiara Advani Almost Got Me Divorced’
Ashneer Grover on Kiara Advani
Ashneer delivered on his promise, and his book Doglapan contains a chapter titled “When Kiara Advani Almost Got Me Divorced.” Ashneer told a tale of meeting one of his fellow founder pals at his workplace in the chapter. He claimed that he and his wife, Madhuri, had casually inquired about his friend’s impending nuptials.
His friend had replied,
“Kisi movie star se baat chal rahi hai”
On probing further Ashneer discovered that his friend had engaged the services of a matchmaker or in Ashneer’s words,
“Seema Aunty kind of matchmaker who specialised in Bollywood alliances.”
The Shark Tank 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 quipped,“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
His wife spent a good thirty minutes “blasting” him about how he was a total nothing when she married him. She also brought up the fact that Ashneer just consented to participate in Shark Tank at her urging.
“Through this tirade I sat with my hands held out, holding her jewellery, 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.”
When his other “sharks” learned about the incident, they utilised this narrative to tease him. Additionally, Kiara and her longtime partner Sidharth Malhotra are supposedly getting hitched very soon.
