Emraan Hashmi’s son Ayaan declared cancer-free after 5 years

Emraan Hashmi is the happiest father in the world today. His son Ayaan Hashmi was declared cancer-free. In a heartfelt post, the doting father shared the good news.

In 2014, Ayaan was diagnosed with first stage cancer when he was just four-years-old. "Today, 5 years after his diagnosis, Ayaan has been declared cancer-free. It has been quite a journey. Thank you for all your prayers and wishes. Love and prayers for all the cancer fighters out there, hope and belief goes a long way. You can win this battle," Emraan shared the news with an adorable picture with Ayaan.

Emraan Hashmi’s post received comments from Tiger Shroff, Dia Mirza. "God bless him," commented Tiger Shroff while Dia Mirza, who has co-starred with Emraan in Tumsa Nahin Dekha: A Love Story, wrote, "Only love for Ayaan."

The actor had also co-written a book titled The Kiss of Life: How A Superhero and My Son Defeated Cancer along with Bilal Siddiqi. “We thought it (the tumor) was putting on weight and I think the first thing we felt was a feeling of guilt. He was 3 years 10 months then and we’ve made the choices for this kid and where did we go wrong?” Emraan had said in an earlier statement about his son’s diagnosis.

At an event on parenthood three years ago, Emraan said, "I think women are emotionally much stronger. When we came to know that our child had cancer, my wife did not cry while I burst into tears. Even during his whole treatment I had to come back occasionally for shooting but she was there throughout and I don’t know how she managed to be so brave hats off to her," news agency PTI had reported.

On the work front, Emraan Hashmi is looking forward to the release of 'Cheat India'.
