Entrepreneur and television personality Ashneer Grover has once again found himself embroiled in controversy. Following his participation in comedian Aashish Solanki's Pretty Good Roast Show, where Grover was featured as a guest, he faced backlash for subsequently threatening Solanki with legal action and having the video removed from YouTube. This incident has sparked criticism on social media, with many calling out Grover for his perceived hypocrisy.

Solanki, known for his comedic talents and winner of Comicstaan 3, launched his roast show last month, inviting guests such as Anubhav Singh Bassi, Huma Qureshi, and Gaurav Taneja. 

The show's format involves comedians delivering humorous but derogatory jokes about the guest, who then has the opportunity to respond later. Roasts, a common form of comedy in the West and increasingly popular in India, aim to entertain through satire and playful insults.

However, shortly after the episode featuring Grover was uploaded to YouTube, reports emerged that he had threatened Solanki with legal action and demanded the video's removal. Consequently, the video was taken down from YouTube and removed from other social media platforms as well.

This action prompted a flood of criticism on various social media platforms, with many users accusing Grover of exhibiting double standards, citing his previous catchphrase 'dogalapan' (double standards). 

Some questioned why Grover agreed to participate in the roast if he was averse to it, while others criticized his timing, suggesting that he should have raised objections before the episode's release rather than afterward.

Once the CEO and founder of BharatPe, Ashneer Grover rose to national prominence as a result of his appearance on the reality series Shark Tank India. He was a judge for the first season, but he did not return for the rest of the series.
