Ashneer Grover, a former Shark Tank India personality, stated he has no plans to watch the show's newly released second season. Ashneer, who gained popularity following the wildly successful season one, didn't return for the second season but hasn't given a reason. However, he claimed to have ruled the show when he appeared in a recent interview.

Ashneer stated on The Ranveer Show Podcast that he considers himself a builder and not someone who collects rent and that he built Sony a franchise worth Rs 10,000 crore.

Ashneer claimed that he doesn't even watch the show, despite the fact that his wife occasionally google for updates. He claimed that in his opinion, he did a good job, and as a result, Sony is now sitting on a cash cow. He claimed that being a part of the show was fun. He helped start a company worth Rs 500 crore, while Sony owns a franchise worth Rs 10,000 crore. Whether it benefited or harmed him is immaterial. He said, “Jab tak tha, I had great fun. Pure show mein masti kari. Thankfully it was received well, pehla season hi kaafi successful hogaya. Mereko lagta hai, in some sense, I was a part of creating a Rs 10,000 crore franchise… I feel happy ke maine ek Rs 500 crore saal ki franchise Sony ko bana ke de di."

When Grover was asked if he is going to watch the show, he said, “Nahi. Mereko lagta hai separation clean hona chahiye. Jab main Shark Tank mein nahi bhi tha, season two mein, jitne bhi sharks they, unko maine social media se unfollow kar diya. Yaar ab woh tumhari game hai, tum khelo. Main kyu har roz dekhun ke Shark Tank ki shoot pe behind-the-scenes kya chal raha hai? Ab meri life ka part hi nahi hai, toh main kyu past mein rahun? Jab se clear hogaya tha ke main season two mein nahi hoon, maine baaki sharks ko unfollow kar diya tha", (I won't watch the show. Even all the other sharks I had been following were unfollowed after it became evident I wouldn't be returning. I don't want to know what's going on during the filming because it's already over.)

Earlier this week, the second season of Shark Tank India premiered. Many viewers have commented on social media that Ashneer's chaotic presence is missed.
