In 2014, Emraan Hashmi’s six-year-old son Ayaan Hashmi was detected with stage one cancer. The boy battled the disease and leads a healthy life now.

To spread awareness about the illness, Emraan took to writing. He penned a book on cancer in April. The actor has now been approached to host a few episodes of a TV show that talks about cancer.
