Bloody copycat Bansals. Be it bollywood or any sector, Indians love copying west's ideas. BTW the Bansals started selling fake products just after a few years of success. Being an Indian I am frustrated seeing copycats everywhere in India.

Shame on you CNBC you are here reporting a deal worth billions of dollars and all you wanted to show is he slums of india ? instead of all the swanky plush buildings of flipkart ? even the office building of flipkart was shot from a site that doesn't make it feel any good .
Irfan Habib (2 months ago)
Wait... Flipkart = India's Amazon 😝 Flipkart is Flipkart not India's Amazon. Why the people from West always like to give the western tag to anything which doesn't belong to them. Like... Ahemdabad = Manchester of the East. Baidu = Google of China And many more.... Western people suck.

@Akhil Vemula Those are not slums then. Those are temporary settlements, in which the labourers from U.P. & Bihar who are working in those under construction buildings might be staying.

As usual, these foreigners always pick the most Garbage places of India to portray it as a poor country😂 This propoganda has been on since 1960s and still going on...Hate these Bastards who do it. Only those who are smart will understand that companies invest in India since it's a huge market and people cab afford it easily. Always showing Slums in the Videos shows how much dirt they actually have in their own minds.

To any Indians offended by the music and shots of slum. As an American I think it looks exotic and incredibly diverse, not anything awful, though I agree it could've been chosen better.

thehoneydeev (7 months ago)
Hey CNBC, I applaud the quality of the content, but please DO NOT pollute your hard work with biases that should be addressed in your internal teams. When you go to foreign developing countries, do not be complacent by immediately going to the poorest areas unless it has a direct connection with your messaging. Act with the same level of RESPECT that you give to Western nations by going to places that represent the PRIDE of these countries. If you go to Paris, you wouldn’t film from Château Rouge, you would film from the Heifer tower. In LA, you wouldn’t film from Compton. Alright??? Upgrade your journalistic code of ethics and stop being a conduent for promoting bias in developing nations and a false sense of superiority in Western nations. I’m not even Indian, and trust me I support your program so my criticism is coming from a loving place. Thanks
