Shark Tank India has been one of the most successful shows of recent times. While many budding entrepreneurs have returned with investment or some expert advice on building their businesses from sharks, many faced the wrath of the business owners. And when it comes to harsh criticism, Ashneer Grover (founder of BharatPe) is the first name that comes to the minds of most people. One such entrepreneur who faced the wrath of Grover is Sippline founder, Rohit Warrier.
Rohit Warrier owns the sta rtup Sippline Drinking Shields, which is a shield that can help one prevent any stains on glasses and mugs as they take sips of their drinks. When the founder presented the business idea on the show, judges were not really impressed, especially Ashneer who said he wishes God had taken away his life before he could see such a product. And Rohit has used his lines in his video recently while promoting his product.
In the video, the founder is seen talking about the product and clarifying that it does not replace dirty glasses and mugs but only saves the people from the dirt or stains on the tips of the glasses and helps prevent the spread of any diseases. Frustrated by the question, glass ganda hai to kya karu, he says, 'hey bhagwan utha le mujhe' and later, tries to be funny by saying, 'nahi nahi, mazak kar raha tha'. He uploaded the video on Instagram specifying why using the product is so important. He said Sippline does not protect one from dirty glasses and mugs that are dirty but covers their rims to protect from any contamination that can happen if after they are washed. A part of his caption reads, "A lot of diseases like herpes, STDs etc could also be transmitted from the rims. SIPPLINE can secure you from such unfortunate events. Sippline is an additional layer of safety while drinking and something is always better than nothing."

Rohit Warrier had earlier taken a dig at the comments of Grover, Aman Gupta (CMO and co-founder of boAt) and Vineeta Singh (CEO and co-founder of SUGAR Cosmetics). He often puts up a video, indirectly ranting at the harsh comments he received from the judges on the show.
Meanwhile, Shark Tank India Season 1 was also judged by Anupam Mittal (founder and CEO of Shaadi.com), Namita Thapar (executive director of Emcure Pharmaceuticals), Peyush Bansal (co-founder and CEO of Lenskart) and Ghazal Alagh (Co-founder and Chief Mama of MamaEarth). All episodes of Season 1 are available to stream on SonyLIV. The makers have now announced Season 2 of the show as well.
