Ayaan was born in February 2010. He was diagnosed with first stage cancer at the age of four in early 2014. When it was revealed, Emraan was quite shaken and would keep questioning himself that where did he go wrong. However, to raise awareness about the disease, Emraan opted to write a book.
Emraan co-authored the book titled ‘The Kiss of Life: How A Superhero and My Son Defeated Cancer’ – which chronicles his career, family, the birth of his son, cancer and treatment thereafter.
“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,” said Emraan in one of his interviews.
On the work front, the actor will be next seen in ‘Why Cheat India’. The film is slated to release on January 18, 2019. It’s a film that exposes the corrupt education system in India. He will also be playing the lead in a web series based on the book ‘Bard of Blood’. It will be produced by Shah Rukh Khan‘s Red Chillies Entertainment.
