The second season of Shark Tank India 2 is finally here and it seems like the first episode has left the netizens very angry. In the episode it was seen that Namita Thapar, alongside the other judges refuse to invest in a brand just because they are Vineeta Singh’s company, Sugar Cosmetics’, competitor. Their biasedness irked the netizens as they took to social media to express the same. They went on to bash the sharks for keeping friendship over business.

Now, reacting to all the criticisms and trolling, Namita Thapar took to her official social media handle and revealed that she is entitled to have her individual values. She went on to say that she has no regrets for not investing in the company that is a competition of her fellow sharks’ brand. Taking to Twitter, she wrote, “Being a shark doesn’t mean we are not entitled to our independent values & speaking candidly so if I don’t invest in a fellow sharks competition, that’s me, no regrets & if I call out toxicity & don’t join the ignorant that celebrate people w lack of integrity.. that’s me :)” ALSO READ: Shark Tank India 2: WHAT!
