AdvertisementSeason 1 of Shark Tank India swept people across the country with a craze that has not been seen before. The reality show has been helpful to a lot of entrepreneurs who got investments for their companies, start-ups, and ideas.

Participants, such as Jugaadu Kamlesh, solved an issue bothering farmers with its multi-purpose cart that can help farmers plow, sow, and water their fields. We have seen some of the most inspiring entrepreneurs on the show so far. However, some absurd business ideas were regarded as unnecessary and bizarre by both sharks and viewers as well.
Here, we will look at some of the most bizarre business ideas that made the show but failed to bag an investment and left us with a thought- ‘Bhai kya kar rha hai tu?’
Sippline- mask for a drinking glass
Rohit Warrier introduced the Sippline drinking shields, also known as the ‘glass ka mask’, to the sharks. According to Rohit, the product act as a protective cover that could be attached to the rim of a glass to save the user from germs and dirt from the rim of the glass.
Ashneer Grover one of the sharks was highly disappointed by the product and said that he would never want to witness a product like this in his life again.
Gol Nabhi- belly button shaper
It was one of those pitches that made sharks burst into laughter. Founders of the company, Jayshree Jumnani, and Baldev Jumnani showcased a bizarre product that was used to make belly buttons more round and appealing. The founders even demonstrated the product on the show.
Founder also revealed that he came up with a belly button shaper idea because of his deep and round belly fantasy.
Poo De Cologne - fancy toilet spray
Mumbai-based woman, Aditi Talwar introduced a toilet spray ‘Poo De Cologne’ which was infused with essential oils. The spray was used before and after using the toilet to suppress the unpleasant smells.
According to sharks, the product didn’t have the leg to work in the Indian market and was a bit expensive.
Ayurvedic ice cream
Gopal’s 56, an ice cream firm, offers a wide range of fiber ice creams, including ayurvedic. According to the contestant, the ice cream would help in losing weight because of its pre-biotic components.

Tween In One - a reversible clothing range
Niti Singhal, the founder of the company presented an innovative fashion concept. She had created a convertible and reversible clothing line in which each outfit could wear in two different ways. Sharks gave mixed reactions, and they said the product was highly-priced for the Indian market.
Aglio e Olio Maggi - burger Maggi
Rahul Daga and Arpit Kabra, the founders of Hungry Head, pitched their innovative Maggi-based food products such as burger Maggi, Aglio e olio Maggi, and pani puri Maggi. While the sharks appreciated their food and loved the taste but this Maggi concept failed to impress the sharks as they thought the concept was not much interesting enough for the investment.
