Shark Tank India has been in talks for many reasons since its inception in the India Reality platforms. The series is a remake of the famous American reality tv show Shark Tank USA, where entrepreneurs pitch their Business ideas to impress the judges to seek investment for their company or the venture.
The Judges here are known as the Sharks. They are self-made multi-millionaires. They judge the pitch of each entrepreneur, their business concepts, and their products and then decide whether they should invest their own money to help market or mentor the entrepreneur to grow the business.
The Shark Tank India was released on Sony India. From its inception, it has received quite the reception from audiences across India and from other countries in a few cases.
In this article, we will give a brief overview of the judges of Shark India and their background. We will also provide a quick review of the show and discuss whether there is a chance of Shark Tank India Season 2 in the future.
Shark Tank India Season 1 Review: Our take on the Reality TV Show
From our point of view, the series is excellent for budding entrepreneurs looking to build something new for society or make a brand or business. The series shows some fresh, innovative ideas coming onto national television and pitching their products in front of such prominent Businessmen.
It conveys a message to every other individual like us that you should not give on your dreams; maybe if you work hard someday, you will get funding from prominent investors who might help you achieve success.
As a fan of Shark Tank USA, Australia and Dragon’s Den, I grew up watching these series. I adored the concepts of the series and the judges like Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Kevin Harrington, Barbara Corcoran, Duncan Bannatyne, and Peter Jones accepting deals based on the pitch of an individual.
We can undoubtedly say Shark Tank India doesn’t disappoint us at all. The series is excellent and comes like a breath of fresh air to the everyday cringe reality TV serials.
Shark Tank India and Horse’s Stable will surely help motivate budding entrepreneurs and will surely help in boosting the startup culture of our youth.
Apart from Shark Tank India, Horse’s stable is also one of the series you can watch if you are a fan of such business reality television series.

Shark Tank India Season 2: Will there be a season 2 of Shark Tank India?
We are not sure whether there will be a second season of Shark Tank India. When the series was released, Sony revealed that the show would have 30 episodes, but based on the audience’s reception; the episode count has been extended to 35 episodes.
So, therefore, there is a chance that as more and more audiences are getting hooked on this reality show, there will be a Shark Tank India Season 2. But as of now, it hasn’t been revealed yet by Sony.
Our early guesses will be January 2023, when we can expect to see Shark Tank India Season 2. Stay tuned with us as soon as we receive any updates on the series; we will update this portion of our article.
Who are the Sharks that the fans will look forward to seeing in the next season?
Well, there are a total of 7 Sharks in Shark Tank Season 1. But the ones the fans will miss the most is as per the following. First is Aman Gupta for his funny, hilarious and OG attitudes; he is the most entertaining Sharks in the series.
The second is Ashneer Grover; although Ashneer is considered a rude Shark by the fans, Ashneer has been a meme icon among the fans because of his honesty and strict behaviour with the Entrepreneurs.
The third is Namita for her famous dialogues in this series “I can’t relate to the product, so I’m out, but I wish your all the best”. Piyush Bansal for his investments and for helping the people in need.
