Actor Emraan Hashmi’s four-year old son Ayaan who was diagnosed with a malignant tumour in his kidney, is responding well to treatment in Canada. The actor had flown his son there, on the recommendation of the doctors who had performed an emergency surgery on Ayaan in Mumbai.
As per sources, Emmi’s uncle Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt revealed that Emraan will be back in Mumbai for the shoot of his film ‘Mr. X’ from February 16 . “Well in children 90 per cent of cancer is curable. The treatment is regularised and Ayaan who is being given the mildest two-drug chemotherapy is doing well. His mother, Praveen who has family there, will stay back in Canada with Ayaan. Emraan will fly there after he finishes with his film commitments in Mumbai. After the anguish we faced, we have reason to believe that the dark night is behind us and Ayaan will be back with us in four months if not before.”
Mahesh Bhatt was all praise for the Bollywood fraternity. He added, “What’s encouraging, is the way the film fraternity has come forward to stand by Emraan in his hour of need. Akshay Kumar, who has a Canadian citizenship, called to offer his help. Our common friend, Ajay Virmani, who lives there, has also told us to call for anything we need. Strangers on the street stop me to say that they are offering prayers for Ayaan. It’s so heartening to see this ocean of goodness.””
