Apart from releasing a book about his son Ayaan’s battle with cancer, Emraan Hashmi has often helped those suffering from the ailment. It was reported that the actor has also donated a sum of money to an NGO that helps cancer patients. Recently, Emraan visited a suburban cancer hospital to meet one of his fans, who is being treated there.

Apparently, the Bollywood actor visited the hospital last week, and spent half an hour with the young boy. “Emraan also gave him a box of chocolates and some other gifts. The actor also interacted with his friends and family members, and promised to take them for the premiere of his next film.”

Early this year, Emraan Hashmi released a book that details the struggles his son, Ayaan, faced while getting his cancer treatment.
