Ashneer Grover has revealed that Shark Tank India’s auditions took place at his home. He was the shark on the first season of the show which aired on Sony TV and can currently be streamed on Sony LIV. Ashneer spoke about the auditions while revealing about the condition when Shark Tank India season 1’s shooting commenced.

While speaking at Lovely Professional University, Ashneer revealed that the makers could not afford a place to even audition and thus, the auditions took place at his home. He shared that is where he met Boat co-founder, Amit Gupta.

When Ashneer met Amit the first time and then got to know him, he found Amit to be a nice guy. Not just Amit, Ashneer also met Peyush Bansal, Namita Thapar and Ghazal Alagh for the first time at his place, during the auditions.

Ashneer was approached to be the shark when he didn’t even know what Shark Tank is. He confessed that he had no idea but that the gen-z millennials were talking about Shark Tank US and how the sharks either welcomed or rejected ideas. This piqued Ashneer’s interest and eventually, he ended up being a shark on the now well-known, Shark Tank India.

During his speech, Ashneer also revealed that there was no venue for the show. However, reports suggest that Shark Tank India was shot in a suburban studio in Mumbai.

Ashneer has resigned from BharatPe. He is now ready to publish his memoir, Doglapan: The Hard Truth about Life and Start-Ups. The memoir is expected to be available post December 26.

Ashneer is the only celebrity who is not a part of Shark Tank India’s second season. He has been replaced by CarDekho’s Amit Jain for Shark Tank India season 2.
