In April this year, Emraan Hashmi (left) published a book on cancer, in which he spoke about the challenges he and his wife, Parveen Shahani, faced, while their son Ayaan (6) was being treated for the disease. The actor has been praised for his sensitive and touching account of their struggle.
Now, sources reveal that the American Cancer Society (ACS), USA, has invited Emraan to deliver a talk on cancer awareness at their institute. A source says, “Emraan is currently taking a short break with his family. He is keen on speaking at the institute. The ACS wants him to speak on Children’s Day (November 14). Emraan is figuring out his dates for the event.”
Emraan has regularly been doing his bit to support cancer patients, by funding their treatments. The Dirty Picture (2011) star even plans to produce a docudrama based on his book, with the aim to inspire people to not give up.
We tried reaching the Bollywood actor, but he remained unavailable for a comment.
