The second week of Shark Tank India Season 2 has arrived, and it looks like a pitcher may cause a schism between the 'sharks' in a forthcoming episode. In a clip posted on Instagram by Sony TV, the founders of the business Paradyes are seen making a pitch to potential investors.
The startup claims to sell "semi permanent hair dyes," and Vineeta Singh of Sugar Cosmetics and Anupam Mittal of Shaadi.com immediately rushed in with an offer after hearing their presentation. Aman Gupta (BoAt) expressed his anger at being kept out of the agreement when Vineeta discussed their offer by saying, "Kabhi toh kisi aur ko le lia karo (Let someone else also join in sometimes)".
According to the promo, a pitcher was the game changer in this deal for the first time in the history of Shark Tank India.
The sharks eventually came up with a plan in which three of them were involved and asked for 3% of the business. They submitted their offer to the entrepreneurs, but the pitchers had other ideas. They rejected Anupam in their counter offer, accepting just Vineeta and Aman in exchange for a 2 percent stake in the business. This left Anupam visibly shocked and he said, “Yahan par dirty game khela gaya hai. (You are playing a dirty game here.) You tried to be oversmart.” Peyush Bansal (Lenskart) declared this was a “big mistake” on the entrepreneurs’ part.
A platform is provided by Shark Tank India for business owners looking for finance and guidance from more seasoned business owners. The first season of the show was a success, but this time Ashneer Grover isn't on the panel.
