Speaking to Faking News Hiren said, “I have been travelling by train since last ten years. And all the seats are already taken when I enter the compartment. Leaving me with that uncomfortable fourth seat, where one of my buttock in left hanging without support. By the end of the day I am left with one sore butt. So my only prayer to the almighty is to give me just one buttock.”

Hiren’s request struck a chord with many other passengers who have been braving heavy rush in local trains for all these years. A city based cosmetic surgeon even offered to surgically remove one of Hiren’s buttock free of charge. “Why wait for the next birth. I will help this man in this life itself,” said the doctor.

After this news went viral on social media, Railways Minister Piyush Goyal assured that he’d set up a special committee to study and find out a solution to this problem. The committee will be headed by a retired IIT professor and a report is expected to to tabled in a year.

TV personality Ekta Kapoor, moved by Hiren’s plight, will produce a TV show titled Agle Janam Mohe Ek Buttock Hi Dijo, that will revolve around local train travelers. Tusshar Kapoor will play the protagonist in the series.
