Ashneer Grover Reveals How Much He Got Paid Per Shark Tank Episode And It’s Not What We Expected

Ashneer Grover, one of the sharks of Shark Tank India, has made a rather surprising revelation about the fees he used to receive per episode.

Shocking Revelation

Shark Tank India host Ashneer Grover was invited to Lovely Professional University to deliver a lecture. Here he shared the details about Sharks’ salaries per episode on Shark Tank India. Surprisingly, Ashneer revealed that they weren’t paid for any episode. In fact, none of the Sharks went not with the intention of making money but they wanted some level of popularity.


Further, he addressed the rumors of him getting paid Rs. 10 lakhs per episode and made it clear by saying how there was no truth to the claim. Ashneer went on to wish he had gained even Rs. 5 lakh if not 10 and that would’ve been a big thing too. Guess, all those claims about the Sharks being paid big amounts to appear on the reality show were just the rumors.

The Viral Video

The video already has more than a hundred thousand views and is going viral on social media for the truth bomb that Ashneer Grover has dropped.


As of now, the finance pioneer has quit BharatPe along with his wife Madhuri who was removed by the board on charges of misappropriation of funds.

Shark Tank India is soon going to return to the TV screens with a second season. The first season was a massive hit and especially the Sharks, that is, Ashneer Grover, Anupam Mittal, Aman Gupta, Peyush Bansal, Namita Thapar, Vineeta Singh, and Ghazal Alagh, became popular names in the season one. While it remains to be seen whether these sharks will be returning for their second term with Shark Tank India, it goes without saying that they have been grabbing headlines every other day.
