The first season of ‘Shark Tank India’ may have ended in February, but the reality show continues to trend on social media. And given the massive popularity of the desi-version of the US reality show, Indian fans have already started suggesting newer ways of improving the show. But amidst all the conversations, a throwback video of a contestant’s pitch leaving judges Ashneer Grover (co-founder of BharatPe) and Aman Gupta (co-founder of boAt) in splits has gone viral online.

The video features Baldev and Jayshree Jumnani of Shrawani Engineers pitching their product, a Belly Button shaper, to the panel of judges on the show. While Baldev’s quirky style grabbed sharks’ attention, he soon introduced the Belly Button shaper called ‘Naval Fukai’, which helps one get a perfectly round belly button without any surgery. While most of the sharks looked puzzled by Jumnani’s pitch, Ashneer and Aman, who couldn’t control their laughter, hid their faces while Jumnani continued with his pitch. Watch the video here:
While the Jamnani’s asked for Rs 20 lakhs for 10% equity in their firm, Anupam Mittal (founder of Shaadi.com) quickly quizzed him (Baldev) about his obsession with the belly button. On the other hand, Grover slammed the Jumnani’s for wasting their time after such a ‘gimmicky’ product.

While the entertaining banter between the sharks and innovative pitches on the show kept the audience on the edge of their seats, ‘Shark Tank India’ has gone on to become one of the most-talked-about shows on social media
