Emraan Hashmi has been through a lot in his personal life. With his son Ayaan having been diagnosed with cancer in 2014, and the recent death of his mother, the actor has said thathe has been taught how to deal with tough times and how to live through his son. However, there are still things he hasn’t been able to deal with.
“Ayaan has given birth to a new me. He made me a better person and taught me that life will hit you, it will knock you down on the floor but you have to get up, stumble, fall again and then get up but never give up,”NDTV reported Hashmi explaining.
When asked how he coped with it all, he said, “I think I need to go for some counselling as this incident has left deeper psychological impact on me.”
The actor went onto talk about how he had dealt with everything compared to his wife, “I think women are emotionally much stronger than me. 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.”
With is son having recovered well, it was announced that the actor has penned a book that was inspired by his sons strength and courage. Titled ‘The Kiss of Life’, the book tells the story of what the family went through during the tough period of Ayaan’s diagnosis and treatment.
Hashmi is currently on the midst of shooting for Tony D’Souza’s next titled ‘Azhar’. The film is based on the life of Indian cricketerMohammad Azharuddin, and will also star Lara Dutta and Prachi Desai.
