Bodybuilder, model and celebrity fitness coach Satnam Khatra died of a suspected brain haemorrhage here today. No post-mortem was conducted while the body was cremated at his ancestral village of Bhallmajra.
According to his uncle Dr Kuldeep Khatra, Satnam had gone to Mohali on Thursday and returned on Friday after partying with his friends. “On Friday, he complained of uneasiness and vomited following which he was rushed to a private hospital in Sirhind,” he said.
“His reports suggested an aggravated cell count. He was brought home after he felt better on Friday evening. However, today, he again complained of uneasiness. We rushed him to a hospital. We had hardly crossed the village when Satnam vomited blood inside the car and died,” his uncle said. The 31-year-old fitness trainer had made a name for himself in the Punjabi music industry by featuring in a few videos and had a huge fan following on the social media.
Once addicted to drugs, Satnam was into physical fitness for the past eight years and had been training a number of young men in Patiala and other districts. His mentor Rohit Khera announced his demise on the social media. Owing to Satnam’s dedication to fitness, he was widely popular among the youth. His Instagram account has around 3.7 lakh followers.
His fans and those associated with the fitness industry are in a shock. His fan pages on the social media are flooded with posts mourning his death. Following the recent lockdown, Satnam was giving online fitness classes and was planning to launch his own fitness brand.
