My grandfather fell ill and underwent angiography, two weeks later my brother (Hrithik) had to undergo brain surgery and then his divorce. I could not handle everything. I went into depression and started eating a lot. Then I shifted to a place of my own and got diabetic, had a fatty liver, and sleep apnoea (a sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing or periods of shallow breathing during sleep).

I had even developed cardiac problems. I had even developed diabetes and hypertension. I had so many health issues going against me. I had to take psychiatric help. Honestly, I could not get out of bed. I would walk 2 steps and become breathless. I sent a SOS to Muffazal Lakdawala (who earlier helped the Egyptian woman, Eman), whom I knew since a long time; he is a family friend.

I then underwent bariatric surgery. I was running out of time. I was a high-risk patient but Dr Muffi, being the best in his field made the surgery super successful. I was 140 kg before I was wheeled in, I am 65 kg today.
It took me some time to shed the weight because of the anti-depressants. My mom and dad stayed in the hospital.
I want to tell people that if you have weight issues, please go in for a bariatric surgery. It’s nothing to fear. my mom spoke to Hrithik and he told her to let me go ahead. Thoda dar to zaroor tha, lekin ek determination tha that I want to win this battle and resurface again. Even while Dr Muffi was performing surgery he was slightly sceptical of going ahead because of my fatty liver.
The best compliment I received was when my grandfather was in the hospital three months ago and Duggu (Hrithik) came from the States after a brief stay and told me, “Who is this girl?” I can’t tell you how I feel. I repeat, I have got a new life.
