Peyush Bansal, the founder of Lenskart and a judge on Shark Tank India has irked the CA community after telling people to avoid them on the show
Once people get the taste of consummate success, it takes very little time for them to forget their roots and remember where they came from. Hitting the roof and believing themselves to be the only people in India who have business acumen, a slew of the sharks on Shark Tank India have faced colossal backlash since the show has been aired on Shark Tank India.
Despite funneling crores into their own business to generate a profit with many of them still not reporting a profit despite years of functioning and being stuffed by investor money, the judges on Shark Tank India haven’t shied away from ripping into the contestants. Fraught with a decadent personality, their criticism has come from a petulant attitude, one which has tried to pull people down rather than serving a true mentors in their growth.

Advise by founder of Lenskart @Lenskart_com @peyushbansal in #SharkTankIndia episode on 7.1.22 – 'CA se thoda dur raho' was unwarranted and is unacceptable.

So a guy turns up on national TV as a mentor to StartUps and blatantly advice- "Ca se dur raho" without any reasoning.
Sad part is it's CAs who are actually being mentors to lacs of startups, mostly without getting too much in return. And someone says this.#SharkTankIndia

This isn’t the first time the show has courted controversy with BharatPe’s Ashneer Grover often lambasted for his approach towards people and their grit and determination. Many have been quick to remind him of the Rs.300 crore he pumped into his company to try and generate a scanty revenue at its onset.
