Later, Namita Thapar, Aman Gupta and Peyush Bansal gave them a counteroffer of Rs 80 lakh for 3 percent. After which pitchers offered all four sharks Anupam, Peyush, Aman, and Namita to come onboard with Rs 2 crore for 5 percent. However, Anupam opted out of the joint offer and dropped the deal. And the founders finally signed Rs 1 crore for a 3 percent equity deal with Aman, Namita, and Peyush.
