Sharing the pictures, Ashneer wrote, “It’s nice to meet up with the @eventbeepindia kids from @sharktank.india and see them ploughing through. Super happy that Rakhi Pal is back with her family!” He also added a picture of the letter Rakhi wrote for him, calling him a ‘hero’. A part of the letter read, “Dear Ashneer sir, your words have been worth more than any offer we could ever have… You’ve given me my family back and their trust in this vision.”
Anupam Mittal commented, “Inspiring.” One fan wrote, “Seriously heart warming to see them doing great and for Rakhi to finally get her family’s support too.” Another one said, “It is just because of you…all thanks to you.” While one wrote, “Without Ashneer sir show is incomplete,” another one said, “Ashneer is truly like a coconut. Angry, harsh from outside but a really nice person from heart.”
Rakhi, along with other co-founders of EventBeep came in an episode of Shark Tank India’s Season 1. She received funding from Ashneer, Aman Gupta and Peyush Bansal on the show for the student community startup.
