Ignore, He Needs To Run His House Too: Anupam Mittal On Ashish Chanchlani’s ‘Shark Tank’ Spoof; Checkout!

Anupam Mittal of Shark Tank India answered to a fan’s question about his character being ‘assassinated’ in YouTuber Ashish Chanchlani’s parody video of the popular reality show. Shark Tank India ended its first season a few months ago, but by the end of the season, it had become a ratings powerhouse, with the momentum continuing for weeks.

Anupam recently took to Instagram to share an appreciation post for his mother-in-law. In the comments section of the post, one fan asked, “Sir, don’t you think the way Ashish has portrayed you in his Sasta Shark Tank is very wrong! Like is it okay to do character assassination of someone in the name of comedy? I really don’t know what’s your take on this but I felt very bad when I watched that video!”

Anupam replied, “Ignore, use bhi apna ghar chalana hai (he also has to earn his bread). Anyway, besides me, nobody can assassinate my character. Woh privilege mein apne paas hi rakhta hoon (I don’t give anybody that privilege),” and added wink-face emojis. Following that, a short social media feud occurred between Ashish Chanchlani’s fans and the original commenter.

The Shaadi.com co-founder was on a panel with Ashneer Grover, Ghazal Alagh, Namita Thakur, Aman Gupta, Peyush Bansal, and Vineeta Singh on the show. Anupam’s calm demeanour and raspy voice were well-known. Ashish’s video, on the other hand, impressed Ashneer.  “Hilarious ! What acting by all the Sharks !! Sasta and Tikau,” he’d written in the comments section of Ashish’s Instagram post sharing the video.

Anupam had recalled his most notable successes of the show in a LinkedIn post. He claimed to have invested Rs 5.4 crore in 24 businesses, many of which were started by ‘young’ and female entrepreneurs. Shark Tank India is based on the successful American show of the same name, which has been running for 13 years.
