Honourable CM of Delhi ,Arvind Kejriwal and Cultural Minister Kapil Mishra today launched Emraan Hashmi’s book “How a Superhero & My Son Defeated Cancer” in the capital city.
Emraan Hashmi may have always played the hero in the span of his career, however, the actor reveals that in reality it is his son Ayaan who is the true “superhero” in his book “How a Superhero & My Son Defeated Cancer” .
The book published by Penguin ,is co-authored by Bilal Siddiqi and traces the effect the disease can have on a child and his emotional journey from diagnosis, through the treatment, to being cancer free for 2 years.
The actor ,today, formally launched his book at a press conference organized in Delhi ,and spoke at length about how penning the book has been a therapeutic experience for him .
On this occasion said Emraan, “This book is a part of my life, it’s about a phase which, in its way, was a cathartic experience. I would say it’s equal to forty movies that I have done. I did a lot of research and know that there are medical and natural interventions that stop cancer in its tracks. I’m proud of the kind of wisdom Ayaan has despite being just six years old .He is already so grown up and a superhero with powers of his own.”
