If you recall the beginning of the year, you couldn’t have gone through your social media feed without coming across a Shark India meme.
The way the creators managed to televise ‘India’ is the main reason for Shark Tank India’s success, which began to be televised the previous year on Sony Entertainment TV.

The first season of the show, which aired on Sony Entertainment TV, was very well received. We expect Season 2 of Shark Tank will bring us the same experience.
Why Did Ashneer Grover Left The Shark Tank India Show?
A previous season judge, Ashneer, had a reputation for being rude, snarky, and direct, which many viewers despised, yet obsessed over.
