Shark Tank India is returning for a second round, serving as the grand stage for ambitious entrepreneurs to showcase their business ideas and fuel their dreams. The American reality series — which in itself is a regional adaptation of the original Dragons’ Den show — helped break the notion that startups were primarily reserved for students, bringing in presenters across all age groups, whose concepts were judged by a team of potential investors, termed “Sharks.” India got its own, first iteration in December last year — and while not all presenters received the hefty cheque, they certainly left with better pitching ideas and guidance for their company.
With the second chapter in close proximity, here’s everything you need to know about Shark Tank India season 2:
When does Shark Tank India season 2 begin?
Shark Tank India’s sophomore run starts tonight, January 2, at 10pm IST, with new episodes dropping on weekdays — i.e., across Monday to Friday. Currently, there’s no word on the episode count, but going by season 1’s length — 35 episodes — we can expect a runtime somewhere in the ballpark.
How to watch Shark Tank India season 2?
Shark Tank India season 2 will continue to air across Sony TV’s services, in both online streaming and standard television format. On the OTT side, you can catch up on all the drama via the SonyLIV app or website, which doesn’t mention a premium subscription as a requirement. So, all you need to do is sign in.
On TV, Shark Tank India season 2 will be broadcast at the aforementioned time over on the Sony Entertainment Television channel.
