Shark Tank India 2 started airing on Sony TV yesterday, January 2 with some attractive pitches enjoyed by the audience. While the sharks Anupam Mittal, Aman Gupta, Vineeta singh, Namita Thapar, and Peyush Bansal funded some companies, they rejected others. Among these pitchers, there was a make-up brand that was rejected for a crazy reason. Viewers are disappointed after watching the episode and questioning the show’s logic.
The reason for their rejection was they were the competitor of sharks’ friend Vineeta Singh, who also belongs to the same industry.
Here’s what happened in Shark Tank India 2
Rahul Sachdeva and Dheeraj Bansal appeared in the show to pitch their make-up product collections. Vineeta Singh, the CEO of Sugar Cosmetics told them, “LET ME CLEAR THIS, MAI ISS INDUSTRY KI GUNDI NAHI HOON.”
After this, Namita Thapar and Aman Gupta rejected their pitch saying, “We won’t invest in a company which is supposed to be our friend Vineeta’s competitor.”
Rahul and Dheeraj then amazed the sharks with their journey of becoming an entrepreneur and starting their own company. The sharks seemed to like their profitability and marketing plan. However, Aman Gupta pointed out a fault in one of the products from the brand’s packaging. He, including everyone, praised the duo for their impressive efforts. Later, Peyush Bansal and Aman Gupta also rejected them.
After watching the episode, viewers feel that the two deserved a chance to be a promising brand and rejecting them based on ‘friendship’ is extremely unfair. “
Have a look at the tweets by the internet users sharing their disappointments here:
Disappointed with shark tank India this season, poor people who have the same line of business as any of the judges, will not get investement just because shark doesn't want to lose their friend. What kind of logic is tht?

There is a reason it's called shark tank and not goldfish tank

Recode makeup deserved better than this. 15 cr FYI 21-22 with 6% PAT. You kidding me? Making stupid faces and laughing on founders? Horrible. I bet you this brand will beat Sugar cosmetics in 5 years.#SharkTankIndiaS2

जो कंपनी 15% घाटा दर्ज कर रही है वो 6% पैट के साथ 30 करोड़ का टर्नओवर करने वाली कंपनी का मजाक उड़ा रही है, काश किसी आईआईटी में थोड़ा humble होना भी सीखाया जाता तो आज @vineetasng ऐसा बर्ताव ना करतीं#SharkTankIndiaS2 pic.twitter.com/3xOQHmHQw0
