Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty, the world’s heaviest woman who flew to India from Egypt for her bariatric surgery, is getting help from all quarters. She needs Rs 1 crore for her surgery to lose weight at 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 confirmed the news. Mid-Day quoted him saying, “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 cannot 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.

Eman is in Mumbai since February 11 for a weight-loss surgery. The world’s heaviest woman weighed 498 kg in Alexandria two months ago. As per the doctors’ plan, she needs to lose 200 kilos in next six months.
