Businessman Ashneer Grover, who became famous across the country through the reality TV show ‘Shark Tank India’, told during an event how it is necessary for any business to create a trust among the people. Speaking at a private university, he told that even when he started the business, it was very important and that is why he decided to hire superstar Salman Khan as the brand ambassador.
However, he did not have enough money then. Ashneer said, ‘I had only 100 crores lying in the bank, so that I had to build the entire business.’ But still Ashneer decided to go ahead with this idea and thought of hiring Salman Khan despite limited resources. The manager of Dabangg Khan had placed a demand of Rs 7.5 crore for this. Also Read: Akshay Kumar And Emraan Hashmi’s ‘Selfie’ To Release Next Year
During his talk he recalled the incident and said, “2019 mein Salman Khan ko brand ambassador liya. Koi soch bhi nahi sakta tha. Ab main choti company tha, merko overnight trust generate karna tha, toh merko laga ki main Salman Khan ko brand ambassador leta hun.”
Because then Ashneer Grover could not afford that much amount so he asked Salman Khan to rethink on the fees. Ashneer Grover’s bargain with Salman Khan worked and he cracked the deal for 4.5 crores. However, Ashneer Grover also told that Dabang Khan had taunted him for this negotiation by the manager saying, ‘Sir, have you come to buy Bhindi? How many Mandawali will you do?’
“Ab Salman ki team ko approach kara, toh woh bole ki 7.5 crore lagenge, toh main calculation kar raha hun 100 crore pade hain, 7.5 isko dunga, 1-2 crore ki ad banegi, fir chalani bhi toh hai TV pe, toh merko 20 crore ka panga hai aur 100 cropre meri jeb mein pade hain, next round hoga nahi hoga merko nahi pata, but maine woh liya panga and main Salman ko bola kam karde bhai, toh woh 4.5 mein maan gaya.”
Ek time mein toh uska (Salman Khan) manager merko bolne laga ki, ‘sir aap bhindi karidne aye ho kya, matlab kitni mandwali karoge”
Ashneer Grover told that in response he gave the same answer to Salman Khan’s manager which he often says in his own style. Ashneer said, ‘maine bola hain hi nahi paise, de nahi sakta.’ Let us tell you that Ashneer Grover was counted among the most popular and tough judges of Shark Tank India. Now the fans are waiting for the second season of this show.
