New Delhi: Singers Roop Kumar Rathod and his wife Sonali visited Eman Ahmed at the Saifee Hospital in Mumbai on Monday to cheer her up.
The couple also sang for the Egyptian woman, once considered to be the ‘world’s heaviest woman’ until she arrived in Mumbai in February for her treatment.
Sonali Rathod tweeted about the couple's visit adding, “We saw. We sang. Eman is in pink of health. God bless Eman.”

Preparations are on full swing to shift Eman to Abu Dhabi from Mumbai for her further treatment, however UAE doctors are yet to submit the date and time of her departure to Saifee hospital.
Reports suggested on Monday that Eman's shifting to Abu Dhabi-based Burjeel Hospital, which is a part of the VPS Healthcare Group, was delayed due to holidalys in both the countries.
Doctors at Saifee hiospital will hand over five folders containing 10,000 medical records to experts from VPS Healthcare in Abu Dhabi, where Eman will be treated.
Dr Lakdawala called the family’s decision to shift Eman to a hospital in the UAE as a mistake.
Eman, who now weighs 176kg, will fly in business class in a normal flight to Abu Dhabi. On February 11, Eman, who weighed 500kg plus, was airlifted in a cargo plane to Mumbai from Alexandria, Egypt, for her treatment.
On March 7, she underwent a bariatric surgery where doctors reduced her stomach size to restrict food intake.
