Bollywood actor Emraan Hashmi is set to release his first book, The Kiss of Life - How a Superhero & My Son Defeated Cancer, on April 7 in Delhi. The event will be attended by chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and culture minister Kapil Mishra. The book, co-authored by Emraan and Bilal Siddiqi, revolves around the struggle and hardships that the actor and his wife faced when their son, Ayan, was diagnosed with cancer in 2014 at the age of four.

“Mr Kejriwal and Kapil will attend the event. I’m very happy and thrilled about the book’s launch, because I’ve worked very hard on it the entire last year,” says Emraan.

Ask the actor if any of his friends from the film fraternity are also attending the event, and Emraan says, “No, it will be an intimate conversation about cancer and what we can do to rectify things, because it’s becoming alarming in our country.”

Emraan reveals that working on the book was an emotional experience for him. “It’s been a great journey. It has been the most personal experience that I’ve documented, more than all the films put together,” says the actor, adding that the Mumbai launch of the book is likely to take place a few days after the Delhi launch.
