She became famous on social media after narrating her ordeal of being a transgender person during the luxury budget task titled Oru Kadhai Sollatuma on Day 4 of the reality show. Namitha narrated the torture and torments she faced at the hands of her parents since her childhood. "In fact, I had tried to flee from my house four times on various occasions, but I had to come back fearing for safety," she said.
Her story moved the contestants to tears, and they gave her a standing ovation. Similarly, Namitha found huge support from the viewers. Her untimely exit has saddned the fans. It was initially rumoured that she exited the show after testing positive for COVID. But the new update has cleared the airs.
Post-op transwomen are said to be more prone to acquire UTI infections and Namitha reportedly got infected by using the common washroom in the Bigg Boss house.
There is no clarity on whether she would return to the house as a wild card contestant after her recovery.
