Ariella Blank and Rebekah Sood, two sisters, made a health-focused Kombucha drink pitch in the most recent episode of Shark Tank India. They started speaking in English at first, then Anupam Mittal asked them to continue in Hindi. The sharks were shocked to learn that the girls could speak Hindi with ease. Rebekah and Ariella talked about their business idea, which involves using their pan-Indian brand to address health issues. They astonished the sharks with their Hindi.

The girls claimed that they can speak Hindi well when Anupam Mittal said, "You actually spoke in Hindi, I had just joked, because after seeing you I didn't think that you would be able to speak." Aman Gupta commented, "I thought I had entered Shark Tank US."

Rebekah continued by telling her story of arriving in India at the age of one and a half. She said that her  family moved from America to India in 1992. Her father was employed by IIT Kanpur as a professor of mechanical engineering. They  We chose to live here because they adored India and Indians. Their parents are both Americans. She then added, "Meri sister made in India hamari Kombucha ki tarah.” The sharks couldn’t help but laugh on hearing the last line.

The sharks tasted the drink and noted the 10 g of sugar it contained and referred to the beverage as a foreign concept."  They also complained that the drink's Rs 220 price was a bit expensive. Aman, Peyush, and Namita opted against investing after long discussions on its durability. Anupam offered them Rs. 75 lakh for 20% of the business (valuation Rs 3.75 crores). Another offer was made by Vineeta Singh for Rs 30 lakhs for 10% equity and Rs 45 lakhs in debt at 12% interest (Valuation Rs 3 cr). The sisters attempted to make Anupam a second offer after rejecting Vineeta's: Rs. 75 lakh for 8% equity (valuation Rs 9.38 cr). Anupam disagreed, so the sisters had to leave without reaching a deal.
