Every hotel has a unique way to welcome their guests. Some offer artisanal chocolates, some miniature luxury items and other items. However, The Oberoi Bengaluru welcomed their guest, Ashneer Grover, with his face printed on ₹2,000 notes and dollar bills! Take a look at this amazing gift by the hotel to the ex-Shark Tank India judge.
Ashneer Grover Gets A Grand Welcome In Bengaluru!
Ashneer Grover, a businessman and former judge on Shark Tank India, is currently visiting Bengaluru, India’s Silicon Valley, together with his spouse Madhuri Jain Grover. Oberoi Hotels welcomed the pair with some bespoke and distinctive presents as soon as he arrived in the city.
His wife posted a video on Instagram with ₹2,000 notes and dollar bills that have his face instead of that of Benjamin Franklin and Mahatma Gandhi etched on them. Additionally, the couple received Chikmagalur coffee pralines, for which Madhuri Jain expressed her gratitude to the hotel staff.
Bengaluru is frequently featured in the media, whether it is due to its nerve-wracking traffic jams or the challenge of house hunting. Ashneer Grover had earlier left a remark on a video showing multiple Ferraris caught in traffic in Bengaluru. A long-lasting traffic bottleneck on Church Street Bel Road was observed in the footage, along with a fleet of opulent Ferrari supercars. The duo may or may not have experienced Bengaluru’s notorious traffic jams. A few commenters asserted that the bottleneck was at Church Street in the meantime.
Meeting Farah Khan In Baku

On the trip to Baku, Azerbaijan, choreographer-director Farah Khan met Ashneer Grover, a former judge on Shark Tank India. Farah realised how “so natural” Ashneer was after the two produced a funny reel.
Ashneer Grover and Farah encountered each other in the reel as she was telling her admirers about her trip to Baku. She was surprised to see him and asked him what he was doing there. He responded by stating that he never imagined meeting her in Baku. Further, he insisted that a photo is a must to capture the memory. She holds Ashneer’s phone to take a selfie, but he goes to take a picture with his wife and asks Farah to take the picture.
Earlier, in a video interview, he made comments that caused controversy once more, claiming that Indore is not the cleanest city in India. His suggestion that the residents of Indore had tampered with the poll results caused the crowd to react negatively and voice their disgust.
It seems that viewers were offended by Ashneer Grover’s comments made during a student conference. The businessman, who is well-known for making provocative remarks, made light of Indore’s six-time win of the cleanest city title by sarcastically implying that the city had “bought the survey.”
He then stated that he meant to emphasise that several elements should be taken into account when deciding which city is the cleanest, including trash from building sites as well as chip packets that resemble litter.
Comment below and share your thoughts about the businessman’s face printed on ₹2,000 notes.
