Recently, Shark Tank’s Namita Thapar accused her house help of posting a hateful post on her Instagram. However, netizens believe its her son who shared her picture and claimed she was not the person she is when on TV.
Shark Tank India’s fame Namita Thapar recently came up with a tweet in which she accused her “educated house help” of stealing her phone and adding a hateful post on her social media account. An Instagram Story on Namita’s account went viral that showed Namita at her home. The caption was claimed to have been written by one of her two sons Jai and Veeru and asked her followers to unfollow her.

Namita Thapar tweeted about her Instagram Story.
On Saturday, a post appeared on Namita’s Instagram Stories that went viral in an instant. Namita was seen wearing a blue nightie at home. It was shared with the caption,
“This is Namita’s son. I just want the world to know that the person you see on TV is not what you think she is. Unfollow her as soon as possible. Will explain why in due course of time.”
The moment the story was out and made its way to Reddit, many doubted Namita’s explanation over the same and believed it was indeed her son who shared the post. A Reddit user wrote,
“She lost me at the ‘educated househelp’. Dude nobody even asked but she made sure that nobody questions her.”
, “Hmm…. Most probably her kid is angry that she is not able to spend much with the family post her shark tank fame.”
One more claimed,
“It is definitely her son. Househelp kisika phone thodi le sakti hain yaar (househelp can’t take anyone’s phone).”
Many raised several questions and claimed it could not be her house help. One more person asked,
“Even if she took the phone, how did the house help unlock the iPhone.” A comment also read:
“And this photo clearly looks like aisehi le liya gya hain masti main by her son and uploaded with a such caption on Insta (this pic looks like it was taken just for fun by her son and then uploaded on Instagram).”
Another comment read:
“See the letters in the story have been capitalized to show Anger!! I don’t think a housemaid would be knowing and would deliberately type in CAPS.”
A Reddit user also said,
“If the household was removed, how does she get the phone. And if she stole the phone, how did Namita got the phone back to tweet and delete that story? I don’t understand the story at all.”
Taking Namita’s side, a person tried to explain the whole story and wrote,
“She is an extraordinary talent. Kids in teens are revolting. Can’t expect one to be a superhuman at work n equally manage the household. The young gen wants equality in all phases, so this is an evil you gotta deal with.”
Namita is one of the sharks in Shark Tank India, which is based on the popular concept of the show of the same name – Shark Tank USA.
