The first season of the business reality show, Shark Tank India, was a huge success, and the former Co-founder and Managing Director of BharatPe, Ashneer Grover was the X factor. After the release of the second season of Shark Tank India on January 2, 2023, the viewers were terribly missing Ashneer's blunt and to-the-point feedback. In addition to this, CarDekho's founder, Amit Jain, who replaced him on the show had also failed to create an impact.
While Shark Tank India season 2 received not-so-positive reviews, Ashneer Grover was happily promoting his book, Doglapan: The Hard Truth About Life And Start-Ups. The book is filled with so much incredible advice about entrepreneurship and business. Not only this, but Ashneer's book also threw a lot of light on life and its hard truths. However, there's one incident in the book, Doglapan, that takes us back in time when Bollywood actress, Kiara Advani almost got Ashneer divorced from his wife, Madhuri Jain Grover. Yes! it really happened and here's what happened that day.
In Ashneer Grover's book, Doglapan, there's a chapter titled, 'How Kiara Advani Almost Got Me Divorced', in which the investor recalled the funny incident that had happened a few years ago when he was with his family. The entrepreneur recalled how one day his mother told him that he had become a ‘big shot’, as Ashneer was so much busy with his meetings and office work. But, unluckily, on that same morning, Ashneer’s wife, Madhuri Jain Grover was talking to a businessman-friend and asked him about his marriage plans.
In response to the same, Madhuri Jain’s friend, who also knew her husband, Ashneer Grover, stated that he contacted a high-profile matchmaker just like the famous matchmaker, Sima Taparia, a.k.a. Sima Aunty. Further in his revelation, Madhuri’s friend shared that his matchmaker has shown him some high-profile names too. After this, Madhuri and Ashneer asked him to reveal some names, and their common friend revealed that his matchmaker had also dropped Kiara Advani's name as an eligible match.
The revelation surprised Madhuri Jain Grover and Ashneer Grover; however, the latter quickly turned to his mother and told her that if he had been getting married today, then Kiara Advani’s marriage proposal would have come for him. He said, "Aapko pata nahi hai market me aaj kal kya chal raha hai. Aaj ke din shaadi ho rahi hoti na toh Kiara Advani ka rishta aata aapke bete ke liye." While Ashneer’s mother took her son’s playful statement like a joke, the entrepreneur’s wife, Madhuri, wasn’t impressed by it at all.
Further in his book, Doglapan, Ashneer Grover shared that after his wife, Madhuri Jain Grover had heard his statement about Kiara Advani, she stopped talking to him. The entrepreneur added that his wife slammed him for 30 minutes while on their way to the airport. Ashneer also added that his wife was so pissed off at him that she reminded him that he was nothing when they got married. Madhuri also asked her husband whether she wanted to marry Kiara Advani. Well, it was indeed a scary situation for Ashneer, but the entrepreneur just got a bit lucky that Madhuri hadn’t made a mountain out of a molehill.
For the uninitiated, Ashneer Grover is one of the biggest investors in the country, and he and his wife, Madhuri Jain Grover are blessed with two kids, Avy and Mannat.
BharatPe founder, Ashneer Grover became a household name after his appearance on the business reality show, Shark Tank India season 1. Though the businessman is missing from the second season of the show, his fans remember him for his witty and sarcastic nature. Now, in a recent interview, Ashneer talked about someRead More
