The ex managing director of Bharat Pe Ashneer Grover gave his reaction to the video and also commented on the same, calling the video “Hilarious! What acting by all the Sharks !! Sasta and Tikau (cheap and lasting)”.
The almost 33-minute long spoofy video is simple but genius as it straightly follows the format of the real show but with a pinch of comedy. In the video, each ‘shark’ has a name that is similar to the original name of the judges from the original show, yet in a hilarious way.
Sasta Shaark Tank Judges – Paneer Grover, Chaman Gutka, Uttapam Misal & Babita Papad
The spoofy featuring judges are like this:

The original show featured three other sharks, apart from the ones who acted in Chanchalani’s parody video. They are MamaEarth’s co-founder Ghazal Alagh, Sugar Cosmetics founder Vineeta Singh, and Lenskart CEO Peyush Bansal.
The show gave opportunities to many budding entrepreneurs to pitch their business ideas and plans to the “sharks” and if they were impressed, they could invest in the business.
Ashish Chanchlani himself plays the character of Paneer Grover in the video. In the video, ‘entrepreneurs’ make their way to judges and present their pitches in front of the ‘sharks’ on a set that looks quite similar to the original sharks of the show.
However, as the nature of a comedy video demands, the pitches of the entrepreneurs, the entrepreneurs themselves, and the judges all present a comedy version of the original concept to evoke laughter.
