Shark Tank India is a reality show that airs on Sony TV. It is based on the American version of the show Shark Tank. The show features entrepreneurs pitching their business ideas to a panel of investors called ‘sharks.’ The sharks can choose to invest in these pitches or not. If they do, they get a percentage of the company’s shares and can also offer advice to improve their product or service.
Shark Tank India ended its first season in the first half of February in 2022. A few controversies marred the program among entertaining banter and serious investment proposals. Furthermore, the audience’s interest was kept at peak by the judges’ interesting comments and passionate debates. And after a week, the show ended, Ashneer Grover, co-founder of BharatPe, showed a little bit extra interest in the founder of Shaadi.com, Anupam Mittal.
Exactly what happened between Ashneer Grover and Anupam Mittal over the word ‘Baritone’!
Recently, Raj Shamani and Ashneer Grover had a conversation regarding the business growth of BharatPe and its journey. While having this conversation, Mr. Grover stated that honesty is the best policy when it comes to gaining long-term business growth and success and also said, “It’s not like I have the face of Shah Rukh Khan or a baritone voice. Nobody’s going to appreciate me for my looks, nor am I going to sound pleasing to the ears. So, what do I have to offer? Why would anyone listen to me?”
Well, we all know that if you want to host a show successfully and attract enough audience interest, then you need that particular voice and power of speech. And the whole audience is quite impressed with the quiet conduct and ‘baritone’ voice of Anupam Mittal. So, when Ashneer Grover mentioned the word ‘baritone,’ the public instantly caught the idea that with his new remark, Grover had thrown another indirect shot at Shaadi.com’s founder. Another main reason for the public to think that is because earlier in the show, Ashneer Grover once mentioned that he developed more brands with the power of his business strategy to convince contestants to choose him rather than Anupam Mittal.
Despite all the indirect comments of Ashneer Grover, recently, Anupam Mittal has stated that he has a relatively good professional relationship with Mr. Grover, and there is nothing to worry about. However, irrespective of all the clarifications, the internet platforms seem not to be tried with all hilarious posts and memes associated with the show as the platforms are overflowing with these. And along with the Anupam Mittal and Ashneer Grover in the judges’ panel on ‘Shark Tank India,’ Aman Gupta [boAt co-founder]; Namita Thapar [Emcure Pharmaceuticals executive director]; Peyush Bansal [Lenskart co-founder]; Ghazal Alagh [Mamaearth co-founder] and Vineeta Singh [SUGAR Cosmetics founder] are also included.
