Ashneer Grover Shares a “Poem”

BharatPe’s chief executive Suhail Sameer, who had a fallout with exiled co-founder Ashneer Grover, stepped down from his position quite recently. Now, reacting to the same, Ashneer Grover took to Twitter to hit out at the company, but this time with a poem.


Mr. Grover slammed the firm’s founder Shashvat Nakrani and asked him to “man up and take care of the business”. “Poem for start of 2023: ‘Chala gaya Suhail Sameer – he was a nalla! Shashvat – why don’t you man up and sambhalo the galla?!’ For my English speaking friends: 1) Nalla (Nalayak) is incompetent/incapable and 2) Galla is / helm of affairs,” the ousted BharatPe co-founder said.

Suhail Sameer steps down

BharatPe recently announced that Suhail has stepped down from his role, adding that he will take over as its strategic advisor starting January 7. Nalin Negi, the fintech firm’s current CFO, will take over as the CEO on an interim basis, it announced.

“This (new role for Sameer) will ensure a smooth transition for current CFO, Nalin Negi, who has been appointed interim CEO to partner with senior executives to bolster execution in all phases of the company’s business,” the firm added.


Notably, Suhail Sameer was hired by Ashneer Grover who was ousted from the company along with his wife Madhuri Jain in March last year on the grounds of fraud and other irregularities.

Meanwhile, the most popular ‘shark’ from the first season of Shark Tank India, has been very active on Twitter in recent days.
