Hrithik Roshan’s sister Sunaina Roshan undergoes bariatric surgery


Hrithik Roshan’s elder sister Sunaina Roshan appeared before the world at her father Rakesh Roshan’s 68th birthday with an altogether new avatar. She has undergone a massive changeover and everyone is strange to spot Sunaina’s glam avatar and eager to know how and when it actually happened.

Sunaina Roshan gets candid and spoke her heart out about her changeling weight loss journey. She has undergone bariatric surgery, an operation successfully performed by Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, who treated Eman Ahmed in India.

The surgery took place at Saifee Hospital at Charni Road and Sunaina, who earlier weighed 140 kg is now 65 kg today and she is working towards losing 10 kg more.

Sunaina told her story when actually she started putting up weight. She narrated her story, “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”.

She also went into depression, she added,“Yes, I had gone into a serious depression. Imagine my state and you will understand why I was prescribed anti-depressants (pauses)”.

Hrithik supported her decision of going through under the knife, “No, 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”. She quips.

Sunaina told that she got the best compliment from her brother Hrithik, “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”, concluded Sunaina.
