Born in 2010, Ayaan was diagnosed with first stage cancer at the age of four in 2014. Emraan was quite shaken with the news and he would keep questioning himself on where did he go wrong. Emraan opted to write a book to raise awareness about the disease.
Emraan co-authored the book titled “The Kiss Of Life: How A Superhero and My Son Defeated Cancer” which includes his career, family, his son’s birth, cancer and it’s treatment thereafter.
In one of his interviews, Emraan said-
“It didn’t in any way make any sense for us because there was no Warning sign, there was no accompanying fever, there was no physical discomfort. There was only one thing that we missed as parents and that was the tumor that had grown on the left side. There was a bump here and went unnoticed. We thought he was putting on weight and I think the first thing we felt was a feeling of guilt.”
The actor will be next seen in ‘Why Cheat India’ to be released on January 18, 2019. The film exposes the corrupt education system in India. He will also play a lead role in the web series based on the book ‘ Bard of Blood,’ which will be produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment.
