‘Chalte Phirte Mangalkaryalay’ gives impetus to marriage industry in ‘Shark Tank India 3’


Mumbai (Uttam Hindu News): Another miracle of small town startup was seen in the new episode of ‘Shark Tank India’ Season 3. ‘Chalte Phirte Mangalkaryalaya’, which is not only trying to reshape the wedding industry but also make ceremonies more accessible. Dayanand Darekar, a 50-year-old businessman from Latur, Maharashtra, has turned this fantasy into reality by converting a mobile container into a unique wedding venue.

He has over two decades of experience in event management and leads this effort along with Omkar Darekar and Sangeeta Darekar. It can also be used for emergency hospital setups, functions and events. Perched atop the sturdy frame of a truck, the ‘Chalte Phirte Mangalkaryalay’ opens into a massive 1,200-square-foot wedding hall, capable of hosting 150 guests seated or 300 guests on the floor.

The fully air-conditioned hall is equipped with a stage, mandap and sound system, providing all the essentials for a memorable wedding experience. Having already hosted over 40 weddings, the Pitchers presented their vision to the Sharks, demanding an investment of Rs 2 crore for a 10 percent equity stake.

The cost of rent and food for 200 people is around Rs 80,000 per day. Aman Gupta said: “What do people say when a wedding is organized here? Do they like it?”

Dayanand replied: “When we organize any program in it, they like this place very much. That’s how I get bookings. But they demand more, and we have our limits.” However, they are not successful in making a deal with the shark.

Speaking about the experience, Co-Founder Omkar said: “Appearing on ‘Shark Tank’ was a surreal and enriching experience for me. “I gained valuable knowledge that could only be possible through a platform like ‘Shark Tank’.” “The insight provided by the Sharks helped me gain a holistic perspective and will definitely help my business in the future,” he said. ‘Shark Tank India 3’ will stream on Sony Liv.
