Ashneer Grover Recalls How He Convinced His Wife To Marry Him
“I aced in chemistry, which not many people like. I was selected for IIT because maine chemistry phod diya tha. Maths, quant and Physics thik thak tha.”
“My first deal was for around Rs 1600-2000 crore. I left the company when I knew they would transfer me to Mumbai. I am a Delhite and didn’t want to leave. I joined Grofers with a friend where I developed the muscle as a founder. After leaving the company, I launched BharatPe in just about 6-8 months. I firmly believe that sirf naukri karke koi bada aadmi nahi ban sakta.”
Talking about his romantic side, Ashneer went on to recall how he met his wife Madhuri while preparing for CAT and also shared that he instantly fell in love with her and then persuaded her to go out with him.
Needless to say, Madhuri asked one of her friends about Ashneer’s review and stated that he was not a good guy. Adding that he was keen to marry her, Ashneer added: “Mera product review bura tha. She had asked a friend about me and she said he was just ‘ainwe hi’. But I was very persevering as I knew I wanted to marry her.”
