Shaadi.com founder and Shark Tank India Judge Anupam Mittal is generally known for his calm demeanor.
Most of the time, in contrast to his fellow sharks, he has been praised by fans for guiding and supporting entrepreneurs with encouraging words even if he is not investing in their businesses.
However, it seems that he dropped his calm and cool side in the latest episode of Shark Tank India 2.
Recently, the channel shared the promo of the show’s latest episode where entrepreneurs Nitesh Singh and Sunil Saha presented their brand, Blue Tea. As the name suggests, they provide authentic Blue Tea and also claimed to be ‘global leaders’ in the category. Reportedly, this did not go well with Anupam Mittal.
Mittal stated that the entrepreneurs have made a ‘big claim which is not true’. He went on to say that he has stayed in America for a few years and has had a lot of blue tea’.
”Branded blue tea is available in abundance. Then how did you make the claim? You are doing gimmickry that’s why I am calling you up,”
Mittal reportedly said on the show.
The pitchers reacted to Mittal’s frustration by reasoning that although blue tea is available, people sell it as sellers. They also said,
”Shaadiyan pehle bhi ho rahi thi, par jis tarah aapne usko brand kiya” However, Anupam Mittal wasn’t convinced at all. Namita Thapar and Aman Gupta ask both of them to talk about their sales and marketing but did not receive a satisfactory response.
Amit Jain also said, ”Aap jhooth bol rahe hain”.
Lastly, Anupam Mittal opined,
”Of course, do a good pitch but along with that answer our questions in short. Hum logg khaali tamasha karne nahi baithe hain yahan”.
