Recently, Shark Tank India 2 dropped an unseen video clip from its first season, featuring transgender Laxminarayan Tripathy. The video is doing rounds on the internet and is receiving a lot of appreciation and love from fans.
Netizens lauded the show for its first transgender pitch as well as Laxminarayan for creating and increasing jobs in the community. Laxminarayan stated that the business provides packaged water to big companies like Vistara Airlines, Sodexo, and Lalit Hotels.
As per Laxmi, approximately 350 transgenders are working for the company. She also mentioned that other companies hire transgenders temporarily and remove them later, but her firm evaluates people based on their skills.
Pitching her product, Laxmi asked for Rs 1 crore for a 10 percent stake in the brand; however, the company failed to secure a deal.
Namita Thapar, on the other hand, stated that she will be a part of her business because Laxmi is working on a great cause of creating jobs for transgender people.
The shark went on to say that her HR team would contact Kineer to further discuss the whole thing.
Anupam Mittal of Shaadi.com said, “I love the cause and your spirit, Laxmi ji.”
Shark Tank India is currently one of the most popular shows in India. Ashneer Grover was replaced by CarDekho co-founder Amit Jain. However, the show has managed to make its audience think from a business perspective.
