Speaking with Mashable India, Anupam Mittal also spoke about spending a lavish life in his 20s; renting out stadiums and cruise ships for parties. “Some of us kids got together and started a venture called Strategy.com, just before the dot com boom. And we became worth $40 billion. We were multi-millionaires in our early 20s, at least on paper,” he was quoted saying. The Shaadi.com CEO added that he lived a grand king-sized life when he had money, he used to rent out the entire football stadiums just for parties, and give cruise ships on rent.

“When we had money, we had a blast. We used to rent out entire football stadiums just for parties. We used to rent out cruise ships. Our company would be shut for a week, and we’d be chilling on three cruise ships. It was a different level. But when the meltdown happened in 2000, jeb mein do kaudi nahi bachi,” Anupam Mittal further mentioned.

Anupam was one of the judges on the first season of Shark Tank India. He was joined by other successful entrepreneurs like Ashneer Grover, Peyush Bansal, Ghazal Alagh, Namita Thapar, Vinita Singh, and Aman Gupta on the show.
