‘Shark Tank India’s Namita Thapar Reacts To Criticism From The Start-Up Ecosystem; Says “Can We Stop Judging?”



Shark Tank India has become one of the most talked-about reality TV shows in recent times. The series that features big names from the business world including Ashneer Grover, Aman Gupta, Namita Thapar, Peyush Bansal, Anupam Mittal, Ghazal Alagh and Vineeta Singh has become an instant hit. But not everyone is a fan. Turns out, some judge the show perhaps a little too harshly. And Thapar, who is one of the seven Sharks has a few words for them.

Namita Thapar is the Executive Director of the pharma company Emcure Pharmaceuticals. She recently opened up about some of the criticism surrounding the show that shockingly comes from within the start-up ecosystem, the very system that the series promises to empower. In an article on YourStory.com, she penned down her thoughts. “Last week I heard some names from the startup ecosystem criticise the show. All I would like to say is that they lost a huge opportunity to impact and influence millions of Indians to understand, respect and take up the entrepreneurial journey,” it reads.

She added, “So can we stop judging, instead get involved, and help make it better? This was new for all of us and we learned along the way; we are still internalising and learning.”
