Namita also added that she decided to correct her mistake by eventually investing in agritourism, a cause close to her heart. She captioned her message:

“A positive start to my weekend… my two sad moments during the shark tank were Jugaadu Kamlesh & Pandurang Taware, two incredible farmers from Maharashtra. Today I invested in Pandurang’s company working towards a super cause close to my heart – Agro Tourism – and excited to partner with him to help pan-Indian farmers show the beauty of our villages to the world see!”

After Namita’s update, several Shark Tank India fans flooded her post with comments.
