Former BharatPe co-founder, Ashneer Grover has been making the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Ashneer has been publically fighting with the boards of directors of BharatPe. Last month, the company had alleged that Ashneer Grover and his wife, Madhuri Jain Grover had misused the funds. This led to a huge public fight between Ashneer and the boards of directors.
Recently, a report in the media claimed that Ashneer Grover owns Rs. 10 crores dining table at his home. However, the original report stated that Ashneer had spent Dollar 130,000, which would be around Rs. 1 crore. But multiple media reports inflated the number. However, BollywoodShaadis was one of the firsts to quote the right amount for Ashneer Grover's one crore dining table.
On March 13, 2022, Ashneer took to his Twitter handle and shared a picture of his dining table. Alongside it, Ashneer quashed the reports claiming that he had spent crores on the dining table at his home. He revealed that he would instead invest the money in business and create opportunities. In the photo, one can see Ashneer's gorgeous white wooden dining table with comfy chairs. Check it out:
Along with the picture, Ashneer wrote that he doesn't hold the Guinness World Record for the most expensive table ever, and he doesn't even wish to. He also shared that it is a lie spread by the BharatPe. His tweet can be read as:
"I don't hold the Guinness World Record for most expensive table ever. Nor do I intend to. Press - don't fall for BharatPe Board (undisclosed sources) lies - you'll lose your credibility like them."
A couple of days back, Ashneer had shared a picture to quash the reports that had claimed he lives a lavish lifestyle. The BharatPe co-founder had posted the photo to respond to the statement of his own company's board of directors. He had taken to his LinkedIn profile and had shared a picture of a mattress put on the floor by his friend to show his bed for the night. Sharing the picture, he had w written:
"I am appalled at the personal nature of the BharatPe Board's statement, but not surprised. It comes from a position of personal hatred and low thinking. I think the Board needs to be reminded of $1M of secondary shares investors bought from me in Series C, $2.5M in Series D and $8.5M in Series E. I would also want to learn who among Amarchand, PWC and A and M has started doing audit on 'lavishness' of one's lifestyle."
