As Shark Tank India returns with a new season, fans have reacted with mixed feelings. All the sharks have also been locked for the upcoming season and it is clear now that Ashneer Grover will not return as a shark this season. Instead, the shark panel will have a new member. Ashneer Grover gained a lot of popularity during his stint as an investor in Season 1. Sharks from season 1 – Aman Gupta, Anupam Mittal, Vineeta Singh, Namita Thapar, and Peyush Bansal are all set to invest in potential business. The new shark on the panel will be Amit Jain. Amit Jain is the CEO and Co-founder of CarDekho Group.
Ashneer Grover’s fans — and he found quite a few of them — based on his blunt, bordering on rude, replies. “Ye doglapan hai,” wrote a fan, using Grover’s favourite line to describe their dissatisfaction with his exclusion. Ashneer Grover is the former co-founder and managing director (MD) of the Indian fintech company BharatPe. He exited the company following weeks of dispute between him and the management on alleged misappropriation of funds.
In its second season, the program, which in its first season ignited India’s business growth engine and transformed the way the country views entrepreneurship, will once more give aspiring entrepreneurs a platform to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams by pitching their ideas to seasoned investors and business professionals.

The show is based on the popular concept of the show of the same name – Shark Tank USA. It launched its first season in December last year. Last year MamaEarth co-founder Gazal Alagh was also a part of the team. However, it looks like she wouldn’t be returning this season either as she didn’t make it to the teaser.
According to reports, Rahul Dua, a stand-up comedian, will be hosting this season. Last year, the show was hosted by Ranvijay Singha.
