Shark Tank India is returning with its exciting second season and several promos from the new season are already out. The makers have already locked their sharks for the business reality show and announced their names by releasing a teaser on social media. However, the former BharatPe co-founder Ashneer Grover was missing, and later it was revealed he has been replaced by a new shark Amit Jain, who is a CEO and Co-founder - Cardekho Group, InsuranceDekho.com. Now, Namita Thapar has reacted to Ashneer’s ouster from the second season.

Coz it’s my ‘real’ money I’m putting in.. what do u mean by it’s not a real pitch ??!! It’s easy to talk & whine & judge … tough to give time, energy, mentorship & money..”
