While each and every judge of the show had received love from the viewers, there's no denying that the CEO of Emcure Pharmaceuticals, Namita Thapar, holds a special place in the audiences' hearts for her witty and hilarious replies on the show. The businesswoman's famous line, "Ye meri expertise nahi hai, toh I am out", has already created a huge buzz on social media. However, she is an inspiration for every entrepreneur out there, as she has taken Emcure Pharmaceuticals to brand new heights in recent years. Today, we will talk about Namita's husband, Vikas Thapar and their kids, Jai Thapar and Vir Thapar. But before that, let's take a look at her inspirational journey!

She had completed her schooling in the same city and had completed her graduation with a Commerce Degree from Pune University. Also, she is a certified Chartered Accountant from ICAI (Institute of Chartered Accountants of India).
Not only this, Namita Thapar had also gone to Duke university's Fuqua School of Business in North Carolina to study MBA.

There's no doubt that Namita is a role model for aspiring entrepreneurs, who want to make a name for themselves in the corporate sector.
However, the best thing about Namita is that she isn't just a flawless and inspiring entrepreneur but also a doting family person, who always prioritises her family over anything. So, without further delay, let's jump straight into Namita's family!
Namita Thapar's husband, Vikas Thapar, is the Senior Vice President of Emcure Pharmaceuticals and is renowned in the corporate sector for his exceptional expertise in providing financial support and value-added business to many big companies.

In 2006, he had joined Emcure Pharmaceuticals, and since then, he has been a vital part of their massive success in recent years.
The Shark Tank India's judge, Namita Thapar and her husband, Vikas Thapar, prefer to keep their personal lives private. It is one of the prime reasons why not many details about their first meeting are on the internet. While Vikas isn't on social media, Namita is completely the opposite, as she always shares pictures with her darling husband from their vacations and events.
Although, the gorgeous entrepreneur love sharing snippets from her personal life on social media. But when it comes to wishing her husband, Vikas Thapar and their kids, Vir Thapar and Jai Thapar on their birthdays, she prefers to keep it private. It seems like the entrepreneur believes in the famous phrase, "Don't tell anyone, people ruin good things." Besides that, Namita is an avid social media user, and her IG handle has some priceless family pictures featuring her mains.
Namita Thapar and her husband, Vikas Thapar, work together at Emcure Pharmaceuticals and always try their best to push each other to greater heights. Time and again, we have seen Namita dropping some drool-worthy pictures on her Instagram handle with her hubby, and it speaks volumes about their love for each other.
The lovely couple is blessed with two kids, Vir Thapar and Jai Thapar. The doting parents, Namita Thapar and Vikas Thapar, never miss a chance to be with them, and the former's Instagram handle is packed with pictures from their family vacations and fun-filled parties.
Namita Thapar is one of the leading entrepreneurs in the country, and she has reached this feat by living a disciplined life, and it is clearly shown in her kids, Vir and Jai's lifestyle.
As time and again, we have seen them participating in a lot of intellectual events and attending many big events or workshops with their mother. There's no doubt that Namita and Vikas are doing everything in their power to prepare their sons for big things.
From twinning with her kids to arranging family photoshoots with them, sometimes it's hard to digest the fact that Namita Thapar is the mother of two young kids because of her gorgeous looks and fitness. The Shark Tank India's judge follows a strict diet and workout plan that are the key factors behind her fit physique and sound health.
The Shark Tank India judge, Namita Thapar, is one of the Board Members of the Regional Advisory Board of Fuqua School of Business, one of the trustees of the prestigious TiE Mumbai, and a proud member of the Young Presidents Organisation.
