Popular reality TV show Shark Tank India is now in its final week, and to mark the occasion, six of the show’s seven ‘sharks’ gathered for a virtual chat on Tuesday on the official Instagram trade of the show.
During the interview, the host of the show Rannvijay Singha shared questions from the media about the sharks. When he asked Aman Gupta (co-founder and chief marketing officer at boAt) what he would like to change in the format of the show, Aman replied, “Maybe the clothes!” The entrepreneur added with a laugh: “People say itne paise let me laga rahe ho, thode paise laga ke kapde hi khareed lo (people say you spent so much money on the show, spend a little more and buy some clothes). “
The comment was in response to a running joke about the show, with several fans wondering why the sharks wear the same set of clothes for all five episodes in a week. People who know it have speculated that this may be because all the episodes aired in a week were shot in one sitting or on one day. But by not giving the sharks a change of costumes, it gives the impression that they are repeating their outfits.
After this funny jibe at the show, Aman added another thing he would like to be changed. “But seriously, (I would like) more trained pitchers,” he said, talking about some entrepreneurs overestimating their business. He then referred to fellow Shark BharatPe co-founder and CEO Ashneer Grover’s famous temperature and added, “If they come better prepared, it would be better. Otherwise, they do oot-patang (rare shenanigans), Ashneer bhai will not spare them . “

Shark Tank India has start-up entrepreneurs putting their business ideas to a panel of ‘sharks’ and seeking their investment. Sometimes, when multiple ‘sharks’ are interested in a business, it sparks a bidding war between them. The show has six other sharks besides Aman and will be broadcast on Sony Entertainment Television Monday through Friday at 9 p.m. The show is scheduled to end its first season this week.
