"I actually want to do this for my brother. He's gone through really tough time. I just want people to see and hear his talent and not just look at him because of his looks."

Soni admitted that it is really hard to look at the mirror every time he wakes up in the morning. Tons of people mock him and tease him because of his looks.


Soni is suffering from a devastating disease affecting his face known as Kimura syndrome. It's a rare disease that even medical experts don't know what causes it. He had it since 11 years old. It keeps on swelling. He underwent four operations to reduce it but there's no permanent cure to stop it from growing.
