Shark Tank India’s season 2 is currently ongoing and in a few days, one pitch was not taken all that well, that being for the Conker app.
The Conker app founder Arvind Arora was actually trolled online after the episode was released for his lofty words and bizarre statements while making the pitch.
Arora was found saying things like “Humara ask kuch nahi hai. Hum yeh chahte hain ki saare sharks humara sath dein. Phir chahe aap Shagun ka ek rupiya bhi denge toh mujhe vo bhi manzoor hai (I do not have any ask. I just want the sharks to support me, even if it that means a notional ‘shagun’ funding of Re 1),” which worked only to amuse the audience but did not impress the judges.
Even judge Peyush Bansal commented that “aap ghumaiye mat baat ko. Aap ye bataiye aapko kitna Paisa chahiye (don’t beat around the bush, you tell us how much money you want.” He stepped out of the deal saying “aap apni requirements hi nahi bata paa rahe hain theek se (you can’t even tell us your requirements clearly).”
However, things seem to be a bit more on the serious end after Shivangi Narula, a corporate trainer and content creator as per their bio, came out with certain allegations against the company and its director Arvind Arora.
Around 4 days ago, Shivangi Narula, posted on her LinkedIn account a detailed post about what happened.
“I got cheated, I need JUSTICE !
Yes, I was seen on national TV #sharktank
Instead of being happy, I feel undervalued, cheated & helpless
There was an attempt to defame me
We creators need respect.
Yes, I want justice!
I am a Creator. I started practicing content creation two years back, I didn’t know then that this could actually be such a blooming industry and I have been working my day and night on this.
Just six months back, I was called by Conker App for a course shoot ( now acquired by Vivek Billore as per government website & proofs )
but then after 1 month, I got to know that all my efforts & sweat were discarded as I was told that the course will not get launched since the company was about to shut down.
I felt bad but thought of shutting my mouth & continue working hard to find another client who can value my efforts
Wait, until the big drama happened, 2 days back”
“What we all see is that same course content was used by the director of Conker World on shark tank while he showed his product demo
The video was used by him #without my consent and it was purely a defamation act done by him on me- Shivangi Narula: The Director and Founder Skilldify (Backed by IIM Banglore)
A creator is an artist and their content actually being used by some big player in the market without the deserved pay and recognition is something very immoral.
This shows the lack of work ethic.
I have been calling each and every member but they didn’t bother to help me, may be because I am not that big a creator in the market
Prafull Billore being the leading creator of India, I hope you hear my plea and help me in getting justice.
I request all my supporters to help me in raising voice against this act of injustice that happened with me.
Arvind Arora hasn’t been replying to me on any of the social media platforms, nor are they picking up any calls. Being a great public figure so through this post I request him to respect creators like me.
In Fact, they’ve been trying to misguide me by saying that the director has changed everyone has blocked me from their social media & conta
Hi! Sharks, Anupam Mittal Peyush Bansal Namita Thapar Aman Gupta
you saw me yesterday on a public platform, with someone pitching you with my content.
I am cheated and I request all of you to support me with this, since I’ve been defamed on a public platform by a man who isn’t even good at giving a pitch and who used me as a pitch product without taking my consent.
We content creators need respect, proper pay for our hard work and proper recognition for what we actually work hard for and is sometimes even our bread maker.
I request you all to come together and join me on this journey to get us the respect that we deserve and prevent getting cheated.
It is not yet known how accurate Ms. Narula’s words are, but they seem to be getting traction in the community with this post. Conker app itself has not released any statement yet.
