Celebs like Zerodha’s Nithin Kamath who went public with their health issues



celebs like masaba gupta, deepika padukone, yami gautam have opened up about health issues like nithin kamath of zerodha. Reelstars

Celebrities taking the social media route to air their tribulations is not new. 44 year old Zerodha founder Nithin Kamath revealed on social media that he suffered a mild stroke six weeks ago and was now on the recovery path. His timeline was flooded with comments, mostly sympathetic, some advisory. Kamath, who has been an advocate of fitness for years, has had to contend with advice from ‘medical influencers’ and well wishers alike.

This took another turn when a director at the Tata Memorial Centre also took to X to urge Kamath to avoid medical advice from ‘random influencers’. Reacting to a thread which had a Shankar Sharma advising Kamath to start hyperbaric oxygen therapy, Red Infrared therapy among other things, Dr C Pramesh wrote, “thread that demonstrates how life threatening social media can be…
Please don’t follow random “influencers” who don’t have true science to back them beyond “Trust me, bro”

While the good doctor may have put the brakes on wellness influencers wanting a slice of the attention pie caused by Kamath’s illness, the issue has put the spotlight on the importance of a good work life balance and a healthy lifestyle. Kamath himself put it, ““Around 6 weeks ago, I had a mild stroke out of the blue. Dad passing away, poor sleep, exhaustion, dehydration, and overworking out — any of these could be possible reasons,” he revealed in a post on X.

Brutal honesty has been the hallmark of such posts from celebs who are usually perceived as indefatigable heroes, with perfect skin and the ideal life. But there have been many Indian celebs who have come out in the open about their flaws, disorders and the pressures they grapple with. Here’s some of them who have taken the social media route to level with their fans.
