A fresh season and an interesting teaser served as an official announcement of Shark Tank India’s return. However, the absence of one of the intriguing sharks from season 1 stunned everyone. The lineup of the “Sharks” will vary significantly this time. Ashneer Grover won’t be appearing on the programme. Ashneer Grover has been replaced by businessman and CarDekho owner Amit Jain.
Who Is Amit Jain, The Replacement Of Ashneer Grover
Amit Jain is from Jaipur and studied at IIT Delhi. He worked for a corporation in Austin, Texas, prior to starting his business here. He and his brother founded Car Dekho in 2007 and are its founders. In the latest television commercial for the programme, Amit was pictured sitting next to other well-known sharks including Anupam Mittal, Aman Gupta, Namita Thapar, Vineeta Singh, and Peyush Bansal.
Much to fans’ disappointment, Ashneer Grover, who was earlier seen on the show, wasn’t seen in the promo. During his stint in the show, Ashneer Grover gained a significant fan following. Having said that, this year, the sharks who are preparing to invest in potential businesses are- Anupam Mittal (Founder and CEO of Shaadi.com – People Group), Namita Thapar (Executive Director of Emcure Pharmaceuticals), Peyush Bansal (Founder and CEO of Lenskart.com), Vineeta Singh (Co-Founder and CEO of Sugar Cosmetics), Aman Gupta (Co-Founder and CMO of boAt), along with Amit Jain (CEO and Co-founder – Cardekho Group, InsuranceDekho.com).
The new shark- Amit Jain who will be joining others this season shared a clip on Linkedin expressing how delighted he is to be a part of the show. “Looking forward to mentor budding entrepreneurs on the show to build a new India,” he penned.
The hosting responsibilities will shift in the upcoming season as well. Rannvijay Singha will be replaced by comedian Rahul Dua. The channel has not yet revealed the day or time for Shark Tank India season 2 to begin. However, according to numerous rumours, it is anticipated to premiere this year sometime between late November and early December. The show’s initial promo was previously issued by Sony Entertainment Television.
