Sushant Singh Breaks Down, “My Sister Can’t Stand/Walk Without Support”

Sorry to other you, but how did it all begin?
Sofiya twisted her ankle and went to the doctor, who did a few tests to find out the cause as to why the ankle had twisted in such an unusual manner. It was discovered to our horror, that she was suffering from CIDP.

So, how is the treatment going?
She has not responded to allopathy, essentially because this disorder cannot be cured with that mode of treatment. It is basically incurable.

So now?
We are trying methods like yoga, ayurveda etc which have been suggested to us by the overwhelming response which I have got from my online post yesterday.

Who called from the industry?
Sanjay Gadvi (Dhoom director) and Randeep Hooda (whose sister is a doctor) called. There have been many more responses suggesting yoga, supplements etc. There is hope.

Financially sound?
Thankfully, she is.

Where is she now?
In her house, near Delhi. Her husband and 18-year-old son are looking after her. This is a condition where your body starts attacking you, your muscles and nerves in particular.

Is she able to stand and walk on her own?
(pauses) No, she needs support.

Is this ailment fatal?
It can be. We cannot cure it, it seems, it will only have to be controlled.

Are you in Delhi/Mumbai now as we speak?
I have just come back after meeting her and will be frequently shuttling hereafter.
