Grover's exclusion from 'Shark Tank India'
Grover also confirmed that he will be part of the series by sharing the promo on Twitter. A few months back, it was announced that Grover would not be part of Shark Tank India Season 2, and CarDekho co-founder Amit Jain has replaced him. Though the reason wasn't revealed, many believe that it is because of his feud with BharatPe and his subsequent resignation.

Meanwhile, the new Pitchers season will premiere on December 23 on ZEE5. The cast includes the three main protagonists and Gopal Dutt, too. While the first trailer did not show Jitendra Kumar, the cast reportedly has some new additions like Abhishek Banerjee, Ridhi Dogra, and Sikandar Kher.
