Taaza Khabar also features JD Chakravarthy, Deven Bhojani, Prathmesh Parab, Nitya Mathur, Shilpa Shukla, and Mithilesh Chaturvedi.
The new year brought with it a number of highly anticipated shows. Among them were the latest season of Shark Tank India and Bhuvan Bam’s Disney+ Hotstar series Taaza Khabar. Despite the success of both shows, a number of netizens were disappointed with Shark Tank India’s new season due to Ashneer Grover’s absence. The BharatPe founder, whose popularity surged after his appearance on the business reality show’s debut season, was absent from the show’s new season. But for viewers who are missing Ashneer’s candid callout of ‘doglapan’ he sees around him, fret not. Worlds collided when Ashneer turned investor yet again, but this time for Bhuvan and the rest of the gang of Taaza Khabar.
A new promo for Taaza Khabar, released by Disney+ Hotstar, shows Ashneer in shark mode, judging the ‘pitches’ made by the characters essayed by Shriya Pilgaonkar, Deven Bhojani and Prathmesh Parab. While Shriya’s Madhu made a pitch for a boutique, Prathmesh’s Peter made a funnily convincing case for starting a stall for Chinese food.
The duo’s pitches made for some funny moments indeed, with Madhu cussing out Ashneer, and Peter slinking away without offering Ashneer any food without getting money for it first. Deven’s Mehboob chacha offered Ashneer some fresh ‘Paav’ which the businessman had to forgo due to his diet.
But the tables turned when Bhuvan made a smashing entry as Vasant Gawde aka Vasya, and asked Ashneer to pitch to him. Seeing the stacks of cash Vasya has, Ashneer immediately complies, listing out a number of innovations, from clothes with solar panels to charge your phones, to an afterglow shampoo for buffaloes.
