One of India's most stunning female entrepreneurs is Namita Thapar. She oversees Emcure Pharmaceuticals' India business as executive director. With her participation in Season 2 of the well-known business reality series Shark Tank India, she is currently gaining a lot of attention. The entrepreneur Namita won the audience over with her funny comments on the show and her catchphrase, "Yeh meri expertise nahi hai toh I am out," which went viral online. Recently, she discussed the costs associated with being a well-known face.

Namita Thapar posted on her Twitter account on January 14, 2023, how she had been victimised by her toxic househelp. She said in her tweet that her househelp had stolen her phone and posted a derogatory message on her social media accounts, revealing the cost of being a famous figure.

Namita offered an apology to her fans for the offensive social media posts: "This is what hate does to this world; it makes people toxic. An educated househelp who was removed stole my phone and put a hateful post about me on social media. Price of being a public figure! Apologies! (sic)"

For those who are unaware, Namita's social media account was compromised a few days ago. She also updated her Instagram bio to read, "Shitty mother, shittier wife." In addition to this, she uploaded a post on her Instagram stories that included a photo of Namita. The entrepreneur is seen in the image sporting a blue, patterned maxi dress. The image was posted along with a statement requesting that people stop following Namita. It has since been discovered that her housekeeper used her account and carried out all of this as payback, not that her account had been hacked.

This is how the message appears: "This is Namita's son. I just want the world to know that the person you see on TV is not who you think she is. Unfollow her as soon as possible. Will explain why in the due course of time."

In an interview with author Chetan Bhagat that was posted on YouTube, Namita was honest about how she was fat-shamed and picked on as a teenager. Speaking on the same topic, the businesswoman disclosed that her classmates used to make fun of her because of her size and facial hair. She even brought up the fact that people had called her "moti" and "moustache girl." Namita also said that when she was an exchange student abroad, she had a problem with emotional eating.
