India’s first and foremost business reality show, Shark Tank India Season 2, is garnering a lot of attention these days. The audiences are hooked to the proceedings and business offers made at the show and to some extravagant melodrama and catfights showcased by the sharks or entrepreneurs. After the show's successful first season in 2022, the makers decided to bring it back for another season in 2023. For the unversed, this show provides real-time, small businesses and entrepreneurs to attract investments from some of the top business magnates of the country currently.

The upcoming episode of Shark Tank India Season 2 is prepping up for some high-voltage drama. In a promo video shared by the channel, we can see the gorgeous television actress, Parul Gulati, gracing the stage to pitch her hair extension brand, Nishhair, to the Sharks. Elaborating the usefulness of her product to those who have less hair and lesser money to afford costly hair implants, the actress made an earnest pitch to the judges. The actress further quoted her asking price at Rs. 1 crore for 2% equity.

As soon as the glimpse of the show's upcoming episode was shared on social media, the netizens took immediate notice of it and began to slam the show. They disliked the idea of a previously established and rather popular actor like Parul Gulati taking part in the show instead of the needy small businessmen and entrepreneurs. Taking to the post's comment section, they began trolling the show's makers for the same. While someone prominently called it a scripted show, others highlighted the favouritism of the makers to incorporate big names like Parul to increase the TRP of the show.

A few months back, on January 16, 2023, a LinkedIn user, Ankit Uttam, shared a lengthy report highlighting the drawback of the show for inviting judges who have faced huge losses in their companies. Elaborating on how he never liked the Indian counterpart of a prestigious and realistic US show, Ankit penned the exact figures of the losses each of the ‘sharks’ have encountered. However, this move of his was not appreciated, and soon after, he received hate mail from another user and a die-hard fan of the show, who cursed him for his blatant display of nonsensical facts.
Well, certainly not all parts of the show are scripted and dramatic, and we saw a glimpse of the same when one of their esteemed judges, Namita Thapar recollected her experience of being body-shamed. Namita, the owner of Emcure Pharmaceuticals, opened up in an episode of the show about how she got badly body-shamed in her teenage years and people often called her moti.
