A toddler has been dubbed "spider girl" because she has two extra arms and legs which poke out from her waist.
The girl, who is two-and-a-half, left her family gobsmacked after she was born with additional limbs in the village of Hemda in Nawada, Bihar, India.
In video footage shared by local media, she can be seen walking around while her other set of legs are placed in a lotus-like position.
She appears to have full use of her arms at the side as she used her hands to eat some food, while her extended limbs looked motionless.
Her mother Usha Devi has launched a desperate plea to local authorities in a bid to get funding for an operation, reports Indian Express.
She argues it will give her daughter a better quality of life and believes officials should intervene.
Following the widely-seen appeal which was shared by News 24, concerned Twitter users tagged Bollywood actor Sonu Sood and called on him to help.
The star has since posted an image of the girl lying flat on a table, with several medics crowded around her.
He confirmed that he is now helping the family and said: "Don’t be tensed. Treatment has started. Just pray."

In response to his selfless act, people praised him online, with one user stating: "Thank you Sonu sir for supporting children so much, you help everyone that’s why you are a very good person.
Another person said: "Thanks Sonu. Your generous heart again doing the best. Prayers assured. Let everything fall in place. God bless you and may the child live her life as normal.”
The Daily Star recently reported how a six-year-old girl was compared to a Hindu God in India after she was born with two noses and a trunk.
Lakshimi had a procedure to remove the deformity which lead to her gaining popularity for having a second nose.
People were initially scared of her but after some time, locals became convinced that she was an incarnation of Lord Ganesha – a Hindu god.
