Though Emraan Hashmi has played a hero on screen, the actor believes that in reality it is his son Ayaan who is a true 'superhero'. Earlier we had mentioned that Emraan wants to compile the experiences of his son who is a cancer survivor for his book that according to him will help the family as well as a cancer patient to cope with the stress and trauma of the illness.
Emraan Hashmi unveiled the cover of his book alongside co-author Bilal Siddiqi at Penguin Books India's Spring Fever 2016. The cover was launched at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi which is the capital's oldest literary and cultural festival organized and hosted by Penguin Randomhouse India , which also celebrated its 8th anniversary.
The event started off with an interesting discussion moderated by Editor of India Today, Kavaree Bamzai, where Emraan Hashmi, co-author Bilal and special guest of the evening, Sonali Bendre, Bollywood actress and author of 'Modern Gurukul' had an intimate chat about parenting. On the occasion said Emraan, "This book is a part of my life, it's about a phase which, in its way, was a cathartic experience. I would say it's equal to forty movies that I have done".
Emraan Hashmi's son Ayaan who was in remission has defeated cancer, inspiring the tag line of his book 'How a Superhero & My Son Defeated Cancer'. The book published by Penguin traces the effect the disease can have on a child and his emotional journey from diagnosis, through the treatment, to being cancer free for 2 years. >
