Shark Tank India was a huge hit on Indian television and is now preparing for its second season. While Ashneer Grover, the fans' favorite shark, is not on the panel, there is still a reason for celebration. Ashneer, an investor on Shark Tank India, will release his autobiography in December. He claims it is "all about the hypocrisy of life - success in failure and failure in success." Additionally, he will provide an inside look at the unicorn-mythical world. 

The book is written in Hindi and is titled "Doglapan: The Hard Truth about Life and Start-ups." Penguin India is the publisher. "Raw, gut-wrenchingly honest and one of the finest storytelling from the Delhi boy renowned for his truth bombs" is how the book is described.

Ashneer Grover took to his social media while giving this update and wrote, "Is kitab padhne ke baad ya to aap ek dum apni naukri chhod doge ya fir zindagi bhar naukri hi karoge. At least beech mein nahi phase rahoge. To get absolute clarity in life - read my incredible life story!"

Talking about his literary venture, Grover says, "My life has had its share of heroes, villains, character artists and more. This is my real life story, one which has left me with a lot more experience, a lot more grey hair, a lot more insight into who my actual friends and well-wishers are; a lot more understanding of 'doglapan' - of success in failure and failure in success; and a deeper understanding of what really matters in life." 

The netizens swarmed to Ashneer's post and responded to his revelation in a variety of ways. Few fans reminded him of his claim that he doesn't even expect anyone to read his books because he has never read a single one, while another one suggested that the shark’s next book should be titled “Bhai ye kya kar raha hai tu”.

Grover is a co-founder and the previous MD of BharatPe, an Indian fintech unicorn with a 2.85 billion USD market cap. In the first season of the reality TV show "Shark Tank India," he also gained popularity as a Shark (investor).

The majority of the viewers requested Ashneer to return for Season 2 of Shark Tank India. Along with Ashneer Grover, Ghazal Alagh, the creator of Mama Earth, is also absent from the show. The second installment of the series now includes Amit Jain of CarDekho. The second season of Shark Tank India will soon begin.
