Shark Tank India's second season began with a bang, and it has already garnered a lot of attention owing to its content. Shark Tank India 2 premiered on January 2, and the first episode witnessed several interesting pitches, amongst them one who grabbed eyeballs with their pitch was a makeup brand, Recode. The two impressed the sharks with their amazing business strategies and pitched their homegrown makeup brand Recode. Recode founders also revealed that Sugar Cosmetics follows Recode on Instagram, after which Vineeta Singh was surprised. Despite having an excellent pitch, except for Peyush Bansal, all the sharks rejected their pitch. 

Namita Thapar REACTS to trolls:

According to netizens, Recode got rejected because it was a makeup brand and a competitor of Vineeta Singh's company Sugar Cosmetics. Recode's rejection became quite a debatable topic, and netizens took to their Twitter handle to share their mixed opinions. Now, Namita Thapar has finally broken her silence in her recent post and slammed the trolls. Namita tweeted, "Being a shark doesn’t mean we are not entitled to our independent values & speaking candidly so if I don’t invest in a fellow sharks competition, that’s me, no regrets & if I call out toxicity & don’t join the ignorant that celebrate people w lack of integrity.. that’s me :)"
