Season 1 of Shark Tank India may have ended, but the show continues to find new ways to be in the news. Shark Tank has become fodder for social media conversations and memes, thanks to the colourful personalities of the show’s’sharks’ and the entrepreneurial skill on exhibit.
One such entrepreneur, Rohit Warrier, who invented the Sippline glass shield and was roundly rejected on the show, is now busily mocking’sharks’ Ashneer Grover and Vineeta Singh. The two sharks were sceptical of the product’s viability and asked Warrier, “dhoondh kaun raha hai hai?”

When Rohit introduced the idea as a ‘glass ka mask’ on Shark Tank India, the founder and CEO of Lenskart, Peyush Bansal, labelled it a solution searching for a problem and rejected it.
Any new idea does not just come to a person out of thin air; rather, it begins in the mind as a result of running into a challenge in real life.
“Every time someone visits a hotel or mid-level restaurant, they subconciously take a tissue and wipe the glasses, especially the rims. I was doing it myself and was witnessing it with other folks. So as a man with hotel management experience, I started looking for a solution which will benefit me and other people,” shares Rohit Warrier Sippline Founder.
The Sippline product “Glass ka Mask” was developed in 2016, however, it was never released because it was seen to be too futuristic. The founder decided to debut it in 2020 amid the covid epidemic after waiting for the appropriate occasion.

“Yeh jo product hai naa, isse wahiyat product maine zindagi mein naa dekha hai, naa main dekhna chahta hun,” said former Bharat Pe founder Ashneer Grover in response to the product. Utha le, Mere ko Bhagwan! It’s a fantastic product, to be sure. “Iske baad main kuchh nahi dekhna chahta chahta chahta chahta chahta chahta chahta chahta While Aman Gupta, co-founder of BoAT, merely chuckled throughout the pitch, Vineeta questioned the product’s salability and searchability.
On Shark Tank India, Ashneer Grover told Rohit Warrier, the founder of Sippline,
“Bhai kya kar raha hai yaar tu? Mazak hai kya? Aap kya bohot zyada peete ho kya? Matlab ye idea apke dimaag mein aya bhi kaise ki glass ko mask pehnauga?”
Ashneer Grover, who always speaks straight forward, had questioned Rohit Warrier whether he was joking or if he drank a lot.
“Mere ismein bohot strong views hain… Ye jo product hai na matlab isse wahiyat product maine zindagi mein na dekha hai na mai dekhna chahta hu… mujhe bhagwan utha le… iske baad main kuch nahi dekhna chahta life mein.”
