The makers took to social media to drop a new promo of the upcoming episode. While, the identity of the pitchers is not revealed, CarDekho’s Amit Jain makes the biggest investment in the history of the show.
In the now viral video, Jain can be seen saying that he is ready to invest Rs 5 crore for five percent to an equity entrepreneur duo.
