Shark Tank India Season 1 was a huge success. It was one of the most-watched programs on Indian television. Aspiring entrepreneurs pitch their company models to a panel of investors (sharks) in order to persuade them to invest money in their idea in this business reality show. Many memes and videos are circulated on social media that became viral in no time. All the seven judges became popular in no time and became celebrities. Ashneer Grover, Namita Thapar, Anupam Mittal, Vineeta Singh, Ghazal Alagh, Peyush Bansal, and Aman Gupta are among the show’s judges.
Recently, YouTuber Ashish Chanchlani created Sasta Shark Tank, a spoof of Shark Tank India. In the spoof, he portrayed Ashneer Grover and Kunal Chabria portrayed Anupam Mittal as Uttapam Misal. In the video, Kunal Chabria described himself as ‘India’s No. 1 simp,’ a ‘four-time divorcee’” with ‘serial killer looks.’ Anupam Mittal was also identified as the proprietor of ‘divorce.com.’
Anupam Mittal had posted a picture of his mother-in-law on his Instagram account. In the post, a fan said in the comments section that the Ashish Chanchlani parody was offensive. A fan wrote,
“Sir, don’t you think the way Ashish has portrayed you in his Sasta Shark Tank is very wrong! Like is it okay to do character assassination of someone in the name of comedy? I really don’t know what’s your take on this but I felt very bad when I watched that video!”
Anupam Mittal, Shark Tank India judge and founder and CEO of Shaadi.com, has responded to a comment and wrote,
“Ignore, use bhi apna ghar chalana hai. Anyway, besides me, nobody can assassinate my character. Woh privilege mein apne paas hi rakhta hoon.”
According to Anupam’s comment, he means that it’s fine if someone is making money on his name. He further added that no one can character assassinate him. Here is the spoof video
