'Shark Tank India' coming with season 2! Registrations now open
After a sensational inaugural season, the business reality show, Shark Tank India, has been officially greenlit for a comeback. On Saturday, television channel Sony Entertainment Television announced the arrival of the show's second season. Soon, it was revealed that candidates waiting to pitch their business ideas and acquire funding from the Sharks can register now, too. Here's everything to know about the process.
- The spin-off of the international series, Shark Tank, took a grand flight as it premiered in India.
- Apart from giving the much-needed boost to many entrepreneurs, Shark Tank India is widely regarded to have popularized entrepreneurship in the country.
- Moreover, it brought instant fame to the seven Sharks, too. The second season's arrival was more or less confirmed.
- Now, things have finally become official.
Posting a promotional clip on its social media handles, Sony TV announced the return of the hit show. The post also revealed that the first season had seen the participation of 85,000 applicants. It highlighted the fact that the seven Sharks—Vineeta Singh, Ashneer Grover, Anupam Mittal, Ghazal Alagh, Aman Gupta, Namita Thapar, and Peyush Bansal—had invested a total sum of Rs. 42 crore.
While Sony is yet to announce who will be the investors for the upcoming season, there will be a lot of demand for the much-beloved first season Sharks to return. However, the chances of BharatPe co-founder Grover—who quit the fintech unicorn startup—returning are cloudy.
Just like in the first season, applicants should register through the SonyLIV app. One can also visit the official website and provide their contact number. Once the number—which will be used for the registration—is entered, a one-time password gets generated. After entering the OTP and agreeing to terms and conditions, applicants are next required to provide personal information and details of their business idea.

According to Sony, the audition process has been divided into three parts. In the first part, applicants will have to submit business information that gives the basic idea of their product/service. If one clears this round, they will have to give elaborate information about their business and record a three-minute pitch video. Finally, a face-to-face interview will take place in the third round.
