You probably would have seen photos of aspiring model Resham khan who survived an acid attack in June this year in London and pictures of the incident went terribly viral on the internet.
While her 37-year-old cousin went through an induced coma and is still recovering, Khan got severe scars and injuries to her face and shoulders. But now photos of her having fully recovered from the attack were widely shared on social media with many commending her remarkable recovery.
People lauded her strength and spirit and looked up to her as an inspiration for never giving up. But Khan now has another story to tell as well. And it is no less heart-touching as that of her transformation.
Khan, who shared the photos over the past weekend during Eid, took to her blog Resham. Online to share more details about the process of her recovery. She confided in all the people and her followers on social media who have wished her well that these weren’t actually photos of her exact transformation.
She took to writing this because she wanted to “set the story straight before someone sees me and starts to call me a catfish”. She wrote that she sat through a session of full face make-up which included an extra layer of foundation or two and a lot of concealer to cover the “raised and pink areas”.
Talking to an Indian website, Khan said she is a student from Manchester in the United Kingdom.
Below are the post-recovery photos!
