In what was a bad shock to Emraan Hashmi and his wife Parveen Sahani and also to all of us, their 4 year old son Ayaan was diagnosed with a malignant kidney tumor. The child was admitted in to a city hospital where the doctors performed a successful surgery on the first stage cancerous tumor. The doctors further advised Emraan to take the child abroad for further treatment.
“Emraan was supposed to start work on Vikram Bhatt’s film, Mr X by January 15 but we have now pushed it by a month”, says filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, who is also Emraan’s uncle.
Emraan is flying to Toronto today; after he cancelled all his appointments and other preoccupations.
“We have consulted the best doctors for Ayaan’s treatment and luckily for us, his prognosis looks good. In fact, doctors tell us that in 99 percent of cases, children diagnosed with first stage cancer can be successfully cured. Ayaan will be admitted in one of the best children’s hospitals in Toronto; both Emraan and wife Parveen will spend two weeks in Canada and then return to Mumbai,” added Bhatt.
We wish the child a speedy recovery…
