Season 1 of Shark Tank India had all the makings of a blockbuster. There was drama, entertainment, emotion, you name it. Season 2 is here and it promises its viewers a thrilling ride as well. If you have not seen it yet, you are missing out on a lot. Especially the most-loved ‘shark’, our very own Peyush Bansal (Co-Founder, CEO & People Officer).
It’s not too late though. You can still catch up on all that’s happening! Let’s start with Peyush’s strategy for Season 2—to simply be himself!
There is a lot more that defines him as an entrepreneur. We are talking about his infectious personality and relatable life philosophy. Recently, he mentioned that:
“There is no secret sauce for success. The only way to grow is to hustle, fail, learn and grow.”
He has blown the audience away with his knowledge and humility on the reality TV series, but what has caught everyone’s attention is his excellent choice of eyeglasses. Each frame brings out his unique character which we cannot get enough of!
Ahead are some of Peyush’s favourite eyeglasses as seen on Shark Tank India.
Peyush has stolen everyone’s hearts with his genuine, transparent and humble personality, matched by unique style. Such as the superhit Blue Sky Hustlr Eyeglasses. The trendy pastel color and wayfarer style suits all face shapes. The radiance and lightness of the frame also elevate one’s professional look to a different level. Made from ultra-light TR90, these glasses weigh less than 11 grams! The Hustlr is about putting passion and purpose before everything else; and channeling that into everything you do.
This image gives us major founder vibes. Peyush’s hard work and willpower have helped the brand reach new heights, but let’s give a little credit to his frameless statement eyeglasses too. The Silver Rimless Aviator Eyeglasses are simple and sleek, light on the eyes and a power statement-maker—perfect for the entrepreneurial spirit on the show and in everyday life. What more? The frames are ultra-lightweight, uber-flexible, and powered with shape-retention memory technology.
It is no secret that Peyush is all about original ideas. Ideas that provoke you, make you sit up and take notice. The Sand Dune Full Rim Hustlr Eyeglasses perfectly fit the bill. Edgy, effortless and elevated, these eyeglasses come in a beautiful frosted matte color which truly speaks to those with an original personality. They also feel light, fit right and let the wearer take centre stage through their evocative design.
Peyush has a strong mindset and his belief and trust in ‘Jugaadu Kamlesh’ proved that. His empathy and the financial support he offered to give the young agriculture entrepreneur is testimony to building a better world and a better country. But the Shark is not just all work and no style. He likes to stay on-trend too! The Silver Tortoise Full Rim Round Eyeglasses are a nod to that. These stylish glasses feature CR39 lenses which block 90% of harmful digital light emitted by digital devices, reduce headaches, offer UV protection as well as vision clarity.
Comfort is king. Peyush is a firm believer in this and this belief has also translated into all of Lenskart’s eyewear, along with style and novelty. The Monza Red Full Rim Hustlr Eyeglasses are no different. They feature flexible spring hinges and built-in nose pads while rubberised temples offer a strong grip. These ensure that you look and feel your best self.

Leaving so soon? Before you go, here’s a quick look at the History Of Your favourite eyewear brand.
Lenskart was founded by Peyush, an ex-Microsoft ‘techie’ with no money but truckloads of passion and purpose to transform the way we see and experience the world. During his post-graduation in Management at IIM (2007), he founded Valyoo Technologies, which is the parent company of Lenskart. The site was created to offer solutions to different problems faced by students, from accommodations, internships to part-time jobs; something Peyush could identify with. He realised that eyewear was one segment which had not been tapped by the E-commerce sector.
Soon, he launched Flyrr.com in the USA, and it did well. He later decided to launch the platform in India in 2010, through Lenskart. With a rapidly growing business reaching over 1,00,000 customers a month via strong online business, uniquely designed physical stores and a first-of-its-kind home eye test—Lenskart is revolutionising the eyewear industry in India.
