Last week, Hrithik Roshan revealed his fit and fabulous sister to the world after a drastic body transformation. Sunaina, the actor’s elder sister, lost 50 kgs in a year and underwent bariatric surgery to achieve it.

Hrithik shared the photographs on Thursday where Sunaina is seen in a more voluptuous size in one image, while in current photograph shows her flaunting a svelte body sporting a ravishing black dress and a beautiful pearl necklace. “Now that’s what I call a transformation! So so proud of you didi (elder sister) Sunaina Roshan. Keep going, impossible is nothing,” he wrote.

In an interview to Spotboye, she talked about how she managed such a feat. She also revealed why she had gained the weight in the first place. “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,” she said.

Sunaina’s health troubles did not end there. “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,” she added.

She then underwent bariatric surgery at Saifee Hospital in Mumbai. “I was 140 kg before I was wheeled in, I am 65 kg today,” she said.

However, to stay healthy and no gain the weight again, Sunaina moved back to her parent’s house in Juhu and had an entire floor to herself which was earlier used by Hrithik. “ I lost 50 kg in one year. Yes, one year. That’s why you haven’t seen me around for one year.I was clearly told that I will take time to lose weight because of anti-depressants. I was eating like a maniac when I lived alone but when I shifted back to my parents’ house in August last year, I lost 50 kg in exactly one year,” she said.

Sunaina said the best compliment she received on her weight loss was from Hrithik. “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,” she said.
