Emraan Hashmi turns author
Bollywood’s serial kisser Emraan Hashmi has decided to dabble with a new profession altogether, as the actor preps himself to write a book. In January of 2014, Emraan’s then 4 year old son Ayyan had fallen victim to cancer, which had naturally caused him and wife Parveen Shahani quite a great deal of stress and discomfort.
The actor has now decided to author a book in which he details how to cope with the stress of undergoing such a nerve-wracking situation. The main intention of the actor is to provide comfort and guidance to those whose loved ones are undergoing the same situation- witnessing their loved one battling cancer.
“Emraan wants to help cancer patients and their near ones broaden their knowledge about the illness, and suggest ways to deal with it. He went through a similar situation, and stood strong. He also made sure that Ayaan always felt positive about the treatment,” says a source close to the actor.
Emraan has also taken out valuable time from his busy and hectic schedule, to focus on some research as regards to cancer and its treatment. “The key chapters in the book will be about treatment options and effective diet plans for cancer patients,” adds the source.
Emraan seems to be serious on authoring a book, as the actor has already met with prominent author S Hussain Zaidi. Zaidi has authored bestsellers such as Black Friday: The True Story Of The Bombay Bomb Blasts and Dongri To Dubai. “He took Zaidi’s suggestions on the flow of the book. He should be able to finish writing it by the end of this year. It is likely to be out by early 2016,” says the source.
Emraan and Zaidi both did not confirm or deny the news of their meetup. It’s nice to know that Emraan cares enough to inspire others and help them to survive an ordeal he himself went through.
