Sony shared the promo on social media with the caption, “Gyan ke manch par aaye business ki duniya ke bade 'Sharks', aur unke saamne @amitabhbachchan ji apne product 'AB Tissue' ki pitch se karna chahte hain apne naye business ki shuruaat! (The sharks of the business world visited the sets of KBC and Amitabh Bachchan used the opportunity to pitch his new business idea.”
The video shows Amitabh Bachchan arriving with a tissue box in his hand and pitching his business idea. He says, "Khaas mahilao ke liye hum lekar aaye hain AB tissue. Is product ka first round of trial bhi ho chuka hai. To aap hamare is product mein nivesh kar sakenge ya nahi (We have brought this AB tissue specially for women. We have already conducted its first round of trial. So will you be able to invest in our product or not)?" This is followed by multiple clips of Amitabh offering tissues to several women participants on KBC.
Shaadi.com founder Anupam Mittal says that if the tissue is sold in the name of the veteran actor than they can invest at least ₹100 crore for sure. boAt founder Aman Gupta is also seen nodding his head on his offer. Lenskart.com CEO Peyush Bansal, Sugar CEO Vineeta Singh and new shark, CarDekho founder Amit Jain are also seen seated along with them.
Reacting to the offer, Amitabh's small demand left the sharks in splits. He said, “Chhoti si bat hai sir. 100 cr mein se 25 percent signing amount milega (its a small thing sir, can I get 25 percent of the sum as signing amount).”
Shark Tank season 2 is returning to the small screen in the first week of January next year. Former shark Ashneer Grover won't be a part of the show.
