When asked whether the show couldn’t afford him, Grover laughed and said, “Afford sirf paise se nahi hota, aukaad se hota hai (can’t solely afford me by money, there needs to be status as well)”.

Later Grover was also asked whether he was approached by popular reality show Bigg Boss. As always, Grover did not mince words and went as far as saying Bigg Boss contestants as “failed individuals”. “You will never see me on that show. Failed individuals go on that show, not successful people… There was a time when I used to watch the show, but I feel it’s become stale now. They approached me, I said sorry, not happening.”
