Ahmad had told Hrithik's mother Pinky and sister Sunaina that she loved the actor and would challenge him for a dance off one day. The Kaabil actor has now responded to her challenge with a motivating message. 

"I would love to dance with Eman. In fact, I am eager to meet her." said in his statement. The Kaabil actor, who is currently out of the country, added, "She has the opportunity of inspiring millions of people through her fight against life-threatening obesity. Once her treatment is complete, I would accept her dance challenge and happily lose to her. But before that, we all must support her in every way possible.”
