Shark Tank India judge Ashneer Grover has been in the headlines for controversial reasons. Recently, it was reported that he had pocketed large sums of money by selling ICC T2o tickets for crores. Now, Ashneer took to his Twitter and reacted to the allegations. Ashneer shared a picture of himself with his friends and joked that he was just there to stop his friends (BharatPe CEO Suhail Sameer and Sumeet Singh) from getting drunk.
Sharing the photo, he wrote, "What BharatPe Board thinks I am doing at ICC World Cup '10 ka 2, 10 ka 2, 10 ka 2 -aye sahab mangta hai kya ticket black mein!' What I am actually doing is ensuring Suhail Sameer and @sumeetsingh29 don't drink silly the hospitality section dry. Kuchh nahi mila to kuchh bhi."
He then shared a skit on Shark Tank India by comedian Ashish Chanchalani. "Board waalo yeh sab Doglapan chodo aur yeh dekho - much more creative and fun for everyone."

According to the reports, BharatPe was a partner with the ICC T20 World Cup, and they were allotted some seats in the VIP section. It is being said that Ashneer sold the seats for about 15k each and 'pocketed' the money.
For the uninitiated, Ashneer had also landed in controversy after an audio clip surfaced online where he allegedly abused a Kotak Mahindra staff. He later denied all the allegations against him.
Earlier this month, Ashneer resigned from his position from the company and the board. Ashneer resigned days after his wife Madhuri Jain Grover, who was head of controls of the company, was fired from her position.
