Mumbai, Feb 19: Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, world’s heaviest woman, who arrived in India from Egypt for her weight-loss surgery, is getting help from all quarters including Bollywood.
Eman requires Rs 1 crore for her bariatric surgery to shed weight at leading Saifee Hospital in Mumbai. The latest to donate for Eman is Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan’s mother Pinky Roshan who has contributed Rs 10 lakh for Eman’s surgery.
Pinky’s husband and producer Rakesh Roshan have confirmed it and said, “My wife has donated Rs 10 lakh for Eman.”
“I was really touched when I first read about her in the newspaper. Since then, I have been following all the news about her and praying for her. So, I thought of donating the money if it could help her in anyway. I can not imagine that a person has been bedridden for 25 years. Because of her, the whole country has come together,” said Pinky.
So far, the hospital has received Rs 35 lakh in donations for Eman's surgery.
