Alongside some throwback photos with his colleagues, he humorously reflected on the irony of the past experiences. Nithin humorously pointed out how, during his telemarketing days, he made “unsolicited” calls to people in the US, only to now keep his phone on silent mode due to telemarketing calls he receives.

“My phone has become unusable due to telemarketing and is always silent. Guess what goes around comes around. I spent four years at a call centre, making unsolicited calls to people in the US. I guess Karma has a way of biting back,” he quipped in his post on X (formerly Twitter).

Nithin recently made a public appearance after a hiatus of over two months, disclosing that he had experienced a minor stroke. Making an appearance at Zero1 Fest, the entrepreneur addressed the audience on the topics of well-being and wealth.

“Slowly getting back to normal. At the Zero1 fest, talking about health and wealth with @nasdaily, JC @FITTRwithsquats, and @twitellectual (sic),” he shared on X, alongside pictures from the event.
