Recently, renowned actress Parul Gulati appeared on the finale episode of Shark Tank India 2 where she sought investment for her brand, Nish Hair.
She sealed the deal with CarDekho CEO, Amit Jain who joined the second season in place of Ashneer Grover for Rs 1 crore for 2% equity. As the episode was out, Parul’s appearance received severe backlash from thousands of netizens who said that Sharks should invest in actual small businesses and struggling entrepreneurs instead of an already successful actress.
Reacting to all trolls, in an interview with ETimes, Parul Gulati talked about the claims that the show was scripted. She said,
“they are saying that it is scripted. Of course, the first three lines of my pitch wrote them.”
The actress said that just because she answered all the answers asked by Sharks, people were claiming that the show was scripted.
Further speaking about the same, the Gulati said that it did bother her for some time, but at the end of the day, she was the one who took home a deal of Rs 1 crore and not the trolls. She said,
“People also thought I was confident, actually, I was quite nervous when I started the pitch. It did irk me a little with the reaction I received. I thought, at the end of the day I took that Rs 1 cr cheque home they didn’t.”
