Former Shark Tank India judge and Bharat Pe co-founder Ashneer Grover has spoken about working with Salman Khan a few years ago. Salman was hired as an ambassador for Bharat Pe and Ashneer got to chat with him too. While Salman refused to get clicked with Ashneer, something he didn’t feel the happiest about, the businessman did accept that Salman is a ‘smart banda’.

Ashneer appeared on the Vagehra Vagehra podcast recently and spoke about being denied the opportunity to click a picture with Salman. “Usko humne sponsor rakha tha, uske shoot ke liye mila tha, usko brief karne ke liye company ke baare mein. Teen ghante baitha tha uske saath, uske manager ne bol diya photo nahi khichwani, sir thoda bura maan jaate hain. Maine bola nahi khichwaunga photo, bhaad mein jaa tu, aisi kaunsi heropanti hogayi (We kept him as a sponsor and I met him for the shoot to tell him about our company. I sat with him for three hours and his manager said that there will be no photos with him as ‘Sir’ doesn’t like it. I said fine I won’t do it. Go to hell, why such attitude).”
However, that day Ashneer also realised that Salman does care a lot about his image. He said that he wishes to look larger-than-life, which is how his audiene also liked him. “But banda smart hai. Logon ko lagta hai ke hawa mein hai, banda genuinely smart hai, usko business samajhta hai, usko branding samajhti hai, usko apni image clear hai. Jab hum ad bana rahe the, usne clear bol diya tha ke mujhe larger than life hi dikhana kyunki maine picture banayi thi Tubelight, woh pit gayi kyunki mujhe usme mandbuddhi dikha diya. Mujhe laga sahi banda hai, yeh sab cheezon ki realisation hai (But he is a smart man. People think he has no substance but the guy is genuinely smart, understands business, branding and knows what his image should be like. When we were making the ad, he said it clearly that he wants to appear larger than life. That’s because he had made a film called Tubelight and it didn’t work because he was shown like a simpleton).”
Last year, addressing students at Lovely Professional University in April, he spoke about getting Salman onboard to shoot the ad. He said, “I decided to get Salman Khan as brand ambassador in 2019. Nobody could even think about it at that point. I was a small company, and I had to generate trust overnight for my business. So I thought I should take Salman as my brand ambassador. When I approached Salman’s team, they told me that they will charge ₹7.5 crores, which is when I started calculating as I had ₹100 crore on me. I will give him ₹7.5 crore, spend another ₹1-2 on making the advertisement, and then I have to pay broadcasters as well. It’s going to be a ₹20 crore expense and I have only ₹100 crore in my pocket, with no certainty if I would get another round of investment. So I asked Salman to decrease his price, and he agreed to do it for ₹4.5 crore.”
Ashneer recently released a book called Doglapan.
Supriya Sule lauds ‘superstar’ Shah Rukh, questions leaders slamming Pathaan | Bollywood
Supriya Sule, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader, who is currently a Member of Parliament, spoke about Shah Rukh Khan and his film Pathaan in a recent interview. She also spoke about Madhya Pradesh home minister Narottam Mishra, who had earlier demanded a ban on Pathaan. Supriya said Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone were ‘looking fabulous’ in Pathaan. The politician added that ‘most people were jealous of Shah Rukh Khan’. Also read: After Pathaan’s box office success, Kangana Ranaut warns Bollywood to ‘stay away from politics’
In December 2022, after the Pathaan song Besharam Rang was released, Narottam Mishra had threatened to ban the movie in Madhya Pradesh. He had objected to Deepika Padukone wearing an orange swimsuit in the song. In following weeks, many other political leaders and organisations voiced objections against Pathaan, which alongside Shah Rukh and Deepika, also features John Abraham. The film was released on January 25, and has broken multiple box office records ever since.
When asked to mimic Shah Rukh Khan, Supriya said in an interview with Unfiltered By Samdish on YouTube, “How would I know? Shah Rukh Khan… please, he is the superstar of India. Right now I am just envious of how good he is looking in that movie (Pathaan). Him and Deepika are looking (gestures feeling breathless)… They are looking fabulous! I think most people are jealous of Shah Rukh Khan…” Supriya then responded to being asked if she would defend the comments made about Pathaan by politicians such as Narottam Mishra, “Not at all, I will not defend. I will pick (up) the phone and ask ‘bhaiya aap ko kya ho gaya hai (brother, what’s wrong with you)?'”
Supriya further said, “But the problem is that why are we even discussing such things. (Late union minister and BJP leader) Arun Jaitley used to say ‘aap dikhana band kar dijiye, log bolna band kar denge (if you stop broadcasting, people will stop saying things)’. Sometimes I think Arun ji is right. It is actually irrelevant, and it become so sad because a lot of other colleagues’ videos started coming out. This is not why we are here for politics. I am not defending either or…”
Directed by Siddharth Anand, the film also features Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana. As per trade analysts and film exhibitors, Pathaan’s domestic net collection will easily cross ₹225 crore over the first extended weekend and ₹300 crore in a week. As per the Yash Raj Films, the production banner, Pathaan grossed ₹200 crore worldwide in two days of its release.
