Emraan Hashmi starts working on a documentary on cancer
Actor Emraan Hashmi, who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Baadshaho alongside Ajay Devgn, has started working on a documentary based on cancer. The actor shared the news on social media. In 2014, Emraan’s seven-year-old son Ayaan, was diagnosed with the first-stage cancer. The actor has earlier penned down a book in which he described the struggles around his son’s cancer treatment.
The 38-year-old actor took to Twitter to make the announcement. "Work on a documentary on cancer has begun. It's in its initial stages. It's important to create awareness about 'the C word'," wrote Hashmi.
Last year, the Azhar actor co-authored a book with Bilal Siddiqui, titled The Kiss of Life: How A Superhero and My Son Defeated Cancer, wherein apart from his life and career anecdotes, he shared his and his family's struggles in dealing with his son's diagnosis.
Ayaan was born to Hashmi and his wife Parveen Shahani on February 3, 2010, four years after they got married.
Directed by Milan Luthria, Baadshaho is slated to release on September 1.
