Following the massive success of the first two seasons, Shark Tank India returned with the third season earlier this month.
However, Season 3 stands out with the addition of three new judges --- OYO's Ritesh Agarwal, Inshorts' Azhar Iqubal, and Zomato's Deepinder Doyal, and Radhika Gupta of Edelweiss, Varun Dua of ACKO, and Ronnie Screwvala of UpGrad.
In a recent interaction with the Hindustan Times, Ritesh Agarwal revealed his best picks from Bollywood, who could shine as the best shark on the show. Agarwal shared his thoughts on who could bring a fresh perspective to the entrepreneurial reality show.
Ritesh Aggarwal's picks Ranveer Singh and Kartik Aaryan
Agarwal's first pick is the vibrant and energetic Ranveer Singh. Explaining the reason, Agarwal said he believes Singh's unique consumer insight and dynamic presence align well with the spirit of Shark Tank India.
“I think Ranveer Singh would be the one. He will bring a sense of consumer understanding and energy, which we also try to bring, but of course, he will bring his own perspective," he said.
The conversation then shifted to Kartik Aaryan, another Bollywood actor who Agarwal feels would be an ideal fit for the show.
Agarwal praised Aaryan's journey from a small town to Bollywood stardom and highlighted his smart career moves and investments.
“Kartik Aaryan is a small-town person but has done very smart things. Not much is talked about him, but he came from a small town and became very successful in Bollywood. He has done it all, but very quietly and systematically and made a bunch of investments," Agarwal added.
