“I Would Have Died 3 Years Ago.” Hrithik’s Sister, Sunaina On Her Weight-loss Journey

Not long ago, a proud brother who we all know by the name Hrithik Roshan shared his sister’s inspiring transformation from flab-to-fit and it was all over the internet.

If you need a little help with your memory, here is how Hrithik chose to share his joy and commend his sister, Sunaina on her drastic body transformation. 

Needless to say, it wasn’t all a cakewalk and now Sunaina, the actor’s elder sister is ready to talk about…


In an interview to Spotboye, Sunaina Roshan has finally opened about her weight-loss journey and it deserves a read. Looking back, she said it was depression that got her.

“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.”


Sunaina who is also an author even spoke about her other health issues she dealt with.

“I got diabetic, had a fatty liver, and sleep apnoea. 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.”


Not just that Sunaina even confessed that at a point of time, she feared for her life.

“I was living on a time-bomb. I would have died 3 years ago. I was even suspected to have developed cervical cancer, but thankfully the biopsy came negative.”

But that was before Sunaina found the will to fight for her life and happiness.


It was then when Sunaina decided to go for a bariatric surgery and voila.

“I was 140 kg before I was wheeled in, I am 65 kg today.

I lost 50 kg in one year. Yes, one year. That’s why you haven’t seen me around for one year.

She was treated by Muffazal Lakdawala, who earlier helped the Egyptian woman, Eman.


But the feat doesn’t stop her. She intends to maintain a healthy lifestyle and live her life on her own terms. 

“I want to lose another 10 kg. I want to tone up more than just lose weight. 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.”


Isn’t it just lovely? Thank you for sharing your story with us, Sunaina. It takes a lot more than just hard work to reach where you have. Kudos!
