Kamlesh Nanasaheb Ghumare, also known as Jugaadu Kamlesh, who competed on the inaugural season of Shark Tank India, rose to fame for his enthusiasm for his product and venture. He stole the show with his ideas and many judges were left impressed by his pitch. In an effort to alleviate the issue of farmers having to carry bulky pesticide tanks on their backs, Jugaadu Kamlesh had presented a pesticide spraying equipment that he had built over the course of seven years. The CEO of Lenskart Peyush Bansal had offered Mr Kamlesh Rs 10 lakh in exchange for 40 per cent equity. Additionally, he had given him Rs 20 lakh interest-free loan. Now, the Lenskart chief took to social media to share an update on the product.
Mr Bansal took to Instagram to share the video. In the video, Mr Kamlesh and his design team, unveiled a more useful, quicker, convenient, lighter and automatic version of the product. While explaining the most recent version to the investor, Mr Kamlesh claimed that the product can reach a height of 10 feet in addition to covering ground space, providing benifit to the farmers. The product has been named as "Bharat K-2".
