Emraan Hashmi’s 4-year-old son diagnosed with cancer
Emraan Hashmi’s four-year-old son Ayaan has been diagnosed with first stage of cancer. Doctors found a tumor in his kidney which got malignant. The news was broke out by filmmaker and close relative of Emraan, Mahesh Bhatt. Emraan and his wife broke down on knowing about his son.
Talking to us about his grand nephew, Mahesh Bhatt said,
"I got a call from Emraan at about 12.30 on Monday. He was speaking some
garbled words and it was a call that kind of shattered me as he was
inconsolable. He was calling from Hinduja Hospital where his four-year-old son
Ayan had been diagnosed with a tumour in his kidney that was found malignant.
The doctor had suggested immediate surgical intervention after which the road
map for the future would be decided and that would probably mean chemotherapy.
When he said this to me, it was a tonne of bricks that hit me and I went across to his house to meet him. I saw a frail and broken down Emraan with his wife, but his son was so full of life, hardly close to looking ailing from the dreaded cancer. It was time for us to get hold of ourselves, take the news in our stride and do what was needed. But we need to be very strong to deal with that catastrophe. I took Emraan aside and told him that I felt this will pass and we will be able to tide over it, and he looked at me with hope and suspicion.
Emraan Hashmi called up Mahesh Bhatt and said, 'The bone marrow scan says it is clear, so it is first-stage cancer and thus curable'. This is the mother of all pains and life cannot get worse than this. It is amazing that Emraan, who broke down yesterday, has transformed into a gladiator who would take all the challenges in his stride. I will make sure as a parent that I will create a firewall around him and protect him. He will do all his professional jobs with the same professional commitment without anything or anybody being affected with minor readjustments”.
Emraan Hashmi is currently shooting for 'Mr. X' and he asked the makers to call off the South Africa shoot so that he can spend as much time as possible with his son.
