It is believed, and rightly so, that life is full of surprises. And if I were to be precise and keep in mind the last couple of years I’d replace the ‘surprise’ with ‘shock’, as will the panelist of famous reality show Shark Tank India, who has found himself plum in the middle of a controversy after a certain alleged audio tape got leaked on the internet. And this right after the businessman and fintech maestro was gaining a lot of popularity for his stint in Shark Tank India.
We are talking about the BharatPe co-founder, Ashneer Grover who is making rounds on the internet for every wrong reason.

Ever since allegations were made against this ‘Shark’ from Shark Tank India about threatening and abusing an employee from the Kotak Mahindra Bank, letting his exasperation out over the bank’s failure to allocate him and his wife shares during Nykaa’s IPO, Ashneer Grover has been pulled into several controversies.

The latest one being where people are expecting the co-founder of BharatPe to be fired from the board, any moment now. Rumors have stirred up that the board of BharatPe has decided to terminate the services of Ashneer Grover. It is being said that the decision has been taken based on the internal investigation conducted that has raked up suspicion of fraud.
However, these rumors have been put to rest since Bharat Pe has made a statement about not firing anyone from the company yet, since the audit is still going on.
Ashneer Grover controversy: BharatPe says not fired any employee, audit is on https://t.co/I3HBLCnZ1u— HuntdailyNews (@HUNTDAILYNEWS1) January 30, 2022
A spokesperson from the firm said, “The board of BharatPe has not terminated the services of any employee at this stage. Reports suggesting any termination are baseless and untrue."
He further said, “The Board remains committed to an independent and thorough audit process. No action has been taken or will be taken till the audit has been completed."
In the meantime, Grover, who is already on a voluntary leave till March-end, is now being accompanied by the likes of his wife Madhuri Jain Grover, Head of Controls, who has also been sent on leave as the tensions grew.

Thanks He doesn’t deserve to be called as Entrepreneur. His behaviour is worst.— Deepak (@the_deemis) January 29, 2022
Dunno about the controversy here but he sure has behavioral issues— Tamolina (@Tamy1203) January 29, 2022
Ashneer Grover is unlucky to be singled out for such shaming. A large number of Indians, padha likkha urban types do indulge in such behaviour.
So let Ashneer be a lesson to all such lakhs of middle class Indians who behave like this, that bacchu zabaan sambhal lo, lag jayegi!
Meanwhile, twitter is having a field day with these developments for people are slamming the panellist for his ‘dogalapan’. One user wrote, “Thanks He doesn’t deserve to be called as Entrepreneur. His behaviour is worst.”
While another commented, “Ashneer Grover is unlucky to be singled out for such shaming. A large number of Indians, padha likkha urban types do indulge in such behavior. So let Ashneer be a lesson to all such lakhs of middle class Indians who behave like this, that bacchu zabaan sambhal lo, lag jayegi!”
