Ashneer Grover Gets Offended With His Comparison To Ankur Warikoo; Says, ‘You Can Abuse My Mother And Sister, But Don’t Compare Me With Him’
Ashneer Grover, who is widely known for his stint on Shark Tank India, has strongly reacted to his comparison with the popular YouTuber Ankur Warikoo. Grover recently attended an interaction session at the Institute of Management Technology where one student told him that he sees a lot of similarities between him and Ankur. In his reply, the former co-founder of BharatPe said he got offended as he has never heard a more offensive statement than this.

One of the students asked Grover, “These days, most entrepreneurs are turning into influencers. I see a lot of similarities between you and Ankur Warikoo… Do entrepreneurs start thinking that being famous is important?” To this, Ashneer said “I’ve never heard a more offensive statement.” Adding to this, he asserted, “I’m so offended, I want to get up an leave. You don’t take his and my name in the same sentence. I have just one rule, you can say whatever you want to me. You can abuse my mother and sister, I won’t say a thing. But don’t compare me to Ankur Warikoo… Now coming to the good part of your question. If I’m making Reels, why are you watching. Everybody can make Reels, but the question is whose Reels are being watched. Yes, I’m an influencer. I like getting involved in everything and creating a disruption.” ALSO READ: Ashneer Grover REVEALS He Is Not Watching Shark Tank India 2, Has Unfollowed All ‘Sharks’, Claims To Have Built Sony Franchise Of Rs 10,000 Crore


He went on to state that he longer needs a show as people are consuming more of him on social media than they consumed him on TV. Ashneer Grover also revealed that over the last year, he has earned a lot more money as an influencer than in his stints as an entrepreneur and in banking. 

Meanwhile, Ashneer Grover rose to fame after appearing on the reality show Shark Tank India. The show returned with its second season with all previous judges except for Grover. He has been replaced by Amit Jain, the CEO of the online venture CarDekho on Shark Tank India Season 2.
