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. Now, season 2 is about to start from January 2, 2023. Ashneer Grover, Namita Thapar, Anupam Mittal, Vineeta Singh, Ghazal Alagh, Peyush Bansal, and Aman Gupta were the judges of Shark Tank India season 1. This season Ashneer Grover is replaced by Amit Jain (CEO of CarDekho). Recently, Anupam Mittal and Vineeta Singh have shared that will Ashneer’s absence have an impact on the new season.
Talking to ETimes, Anupam Mittal shared,
“I feel this show is very big and huge. It is a show through which Indians are able to fulfill their dreams and aspirations. This show is bigger than any of us, it is huge as I said earlier. It is bigger than any personality whether it is me, or anybody else. Nobody from us can make or break the show. The magic is in how we all come together, the magic is in the founders, the show, and is all about the pitchers, and entrepreneurship. It is not about me or any other Shark, it is about India. The upcoming season is going to be explosive, dhamakedar and there’s no doubt about it. And nobody is going to miss anyone this season.”
Vineeta Singh from Sugar Cosmetics shared,
“I am going to miss Ashneer Grover, I think he was good. But whatever happened was between him and the channel. The show is not going to have any impact. I feel season 2 is going to be phenomenal. And I believe that ‘The Show Must Go On’.”
Shark Tank India season 2 will see Anupam Mittal (Shaadi.com), Namita Thapar (Emcure), Peyush Bansal (Lenskart), Aman Gupta (boAt), and Vineeta Singh (Sugar) as sharks. The show is all set to air from January 2, 2023.
