Ashneer recently gave a lecture at Lovely Professional University. Talking about the show, he revealed that the show’s audition took place at his home and joked about the makers of the show, “bade gareeb log hain (these people are poor).”

He added, “None of us went with the intention of making money. Let me tell you the truth, none of us made any money from the show. Some people said that we made 10 lakh per episode, but I’d have been happy with even 5 lakh. The concept of the show is very simple; they believe we have money, and they felt that we all have high-value startups, we’d be able to invest some money on the show. So, they asked us to commit to spending 10 crore each on the show. We said okay. We weren’t paid anything for any episode; in fact, we worked like bonded labour for hours and hours.”

Ashneer had resigned from his post as managing director of BharatPe in March after allegations of misappropriations of funds. He and wife Madhuri Jain Grover were later removed from the company’s board as well.

Ashneer was one of the seven judges on Shark Tank India along with Peyush Bansal (CEO and co-founder of Lenskart), Anupam Mittal (founder and CEO of Shaadi.com), Vineeta Singh (CEO and co-founder of SUGAR Cosmetics), Namita Thapar (executive director of Emcure Pharmaceuticals), Aman Gupta (co-founder and chief marketing officer at boAt), and Ghazal Alagh (co-founder of MamaEarth).
