Shark Tank’s Ashneer Grover recalls not taking Virat Kohli as his brand ambassador; says “maine kaunsa lehenge pehnane hain”


Former Shark Tank India judge Ashneer Grover is well-known for his honest and direct remarks. The businessman rose to prominence after appearing as a judge on Shark Tank India Season 1 and is now missing from the second season, which has displeased netizens. While in a conversation with an online portal, Ashneer revealed about once rejecting former Indian skipper Virat Kohli as his brand ambassador.

During a chat with an online platform, Ashneer Grover recalled how he turned down Virat Kohli as a brand ambassador despite the addition of Anushka Sharma to the offer. Ashneer said “Maine bola chalo, Virat Kohli ko le lete hain, aur usne ek amount boli. Abhi bolunga nahi, Virat Kohli bura maan jayega. Phir bola ke Anushka ko bhi saath mein le lo.”
Ashneer further revealed “Maine bola maine kaunse Mayavar ke lehenge pehnane hain aur sherwani bechni hai, woh Manyavar waalon ne kar liya hai. Maine bola koi aur player bata, woh bolta hai ke uske baad kisi ki aukaat hi nahi hai. Maine kaha ek kaam kar, jitne ka tu mujhe Kohli bech raha tha na, usko divide by two kar, aur iss number pe mujhe baaki 11 player laa de. Aur maine wohi deal kari phir, 11 player liye, Kohli divided by two ke number pe.” (A sum was quoted by Kohli’s agency that I will not reveal here for fear of offending him. They also offered me, Anushka, in a package deal, but I declined. So I asked if they could find me 11 other players for half the price of Kohli. And that is the final agreement I reached.)

Ashneer revealed that he had told this story to cricketer Virat Kohli and said: “main usse yehi kissa suna raha tha, ke kaise aapko bechne aaye they, aur maine baaki 11 player le liye aapko nahi liya. Kohli bola, ‘It’s very good business’.”

Ashneer recently was trending on Twitter when the second season of Shark Tank India had premiered. Fans started tweeting about missing him and his honest answers while listening to the pitch. Ashneer had also spoken about the real reason for not doing the show, he said: “Afford sirf paise se nahi hota, aukaat se hota hai.”
