BharatPe Controversy: Founder Bhavik Koladiya Sues Co-Founder and Shark Tank India Fame Ashneer Grover Over Share Dispute
In a new development in the BharatPe controversy, founder Bhavik Koladiya who recently made an exit from the company has now sued his co-founder and Shark Tank India fame, Ashneer Grover. Koladiya has filed a case against Ashneer Grover over share dispute. Though Koladiya had a majority stake in BharatPe, he had to exit the cap owing to his past conviction for credit card fraud in the United States. As per sources, Koladiya made an exit and let go of his shares because his involvement in BharatPe would have affected fundraising talks with big institutional investors. However, now the Fintech founder is looking to get his shares back. The matter is listed for hearing by the Delhi High Court on January 18. The rift between Bhavik Koladiya and Ashneer Grover started in 2018 when Grover became BharatPe's face, and Koladiya had to take a step back "owing to discomfort on the part of large institutional investors to have a person with a jail term in the US." Former Shark Tank India's Shark Ashneer Grover has said multiple times that Koladiya had sold his shares to him and other buyers. However, Koladiya told ET Prime that he had signed an agreement with Grover in 2018 to get his pledged shares of BharatPe. Currently, Ashneer Grover holds shares of Rs 1000 crore for Koladiya.
