Eman Ahmed, the Egyptian national who at 500 kg was the heaviest woman in the world till recently, and whose journey from her country to Mumbai’s Saifee Hospital was reported across the world, is ready to go home, her doctors have said. Her family, however, has alleged the doctors, led by renowned bariatric surgeon Dr Mufazzal Lakdawala, have lost interest in her recovery as the hype around the treatment has abated.
Eman’s sister Shaimaa Salim, 32, said her elder sibling hadn’t undergone a significant recovery. She junked reports of Eman’s 260-kg weight loss, saying she continued to suffer from seizures, her right side remained paralysed, and she could barely move on her own.
Lakdawala’s team told us back in Egypt that she will need at least six months of hospitalisation. There hasn’t been any miraculous recovery, my sister is still largely immobile. Then why is this hurry to send her home?Shaimaa Salim

Simi Garewal to Make Her TV Comeback
Actress Simi Garewal, who seamlessly transitioned to the role of a talk show host with her eponymous show, Rendezvous, is gearing up for a comeback with a new season being picked up by Colors Infinity. “It’s going to be a brilliant line-up of stars,” promises the 69-year-old veteran star.
Meanwhile, Simi recently reunited with her Karz-director, Subhash Ghai, and co-star Rishi Kapoor for a ‘matinee show’ of the 1980 thriller that never had a premiere ahead of its theatrical release. In Ghai’s office, ahead of the screening, which was part of an endeavour to revive classics at Mumbai’s heritage theatre, New Excelsior, the trio reminisced how Karz had fallen short of a silver jubilee run but had gone on to become a cult film. “Karz has been cloned by many but they never worked since the original remains etched in the audience’s mind,” Simi reveals, recalling how during the recent screening, youngsters ran to the front of the screen, dancing to the film’s songs.
