EMRAAN HASHMI’S BOOK ‘THE KISS OF LIFE’ TO RELEASE IN HINDI, MARATHI

Actor Emraan Hashmi‘s book on his son Ayaan’s battle and victory over cancer, ‘The Kiss Of Life’, will be released in Marathi and Hindi in June.

“Next month, the Hindi version and a Marathi version will be launched. So looking forward to that,” Emraan said, at the launch of the English-language book in Mumbai on Monday.

About his experiences of re-living his stress for his son’s illness while writing the book, Emraan said, “When we thought that this is going to be documented in this book, I thought it’s going to be an extremely painful journey to relive all of that once again.”

“In some ways, moments brought about nostalgia because the book is not just about the episode of cancer, it’s about retracing how I was in college, school, my grandmother, my father and everyone from the family.”

The book has been co-written by 21-year-old writer Bilal Siddiqi and Emraan had shared the first look of the book in March this year.

Popular crime writer S. Hussain Zaidi who has penned books which have been adapted into films such as ‘Black Friday’, ‘Phantom’, ‘Shootout At Wadala’, was the one who pushed Emraan relentlessly for months to write a book on the incident so that it could make a difference into the lives of other families facing similar situations.

“I think it was very therapeutic, it’s like counseling, there are feelings, you’ve been through them, but the moment you talk about them or pen them down, it finds some kind of a closure.”

“It was fascinating because we as a family could actually fight this disease. It takes me back to the first day, the hope with which we started off where Parveen and me held back our tears. We told ourselves we are going to make sure that nothing happens to our son. So it’s just the feeling of accomplishment which everyone in the family felt,” Emraan said.

Ayaan was diagnosed with cancer, where a tumour of the size of a season ball was formed near his kidney, in 2014 when he was three-and-half years old. He was then treated in Canada, and has completely recovered now.

BJP preventing ‘moksha’ for Sushant’s soul: Congress

Sushant Singh Rajput No More

On the 35th birthday of Sushant Singh Rajput, the Maharashtra Congress on Thursday slammed the opposition BJP, alleging that because of its machinations, the late Bollywood actor’s soul is deprived of ‘moksha’ (salvation).

Paying homage to the memory of Sushant, Maharashtra Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant said in his death on June 14, 2020, the film industry lost a highly talented and upcoming star and his loss would be felt for long.

Despite a period of eight months, the real reasons behind his death have not been revealed to the people of the country although three central agencies like CBI, Enforcement Directorate and Narcotics Control Bureau have been deployed for the probe, he said.

“However, this is also a time to remember how the BJP blatantly exploited his death for its dirty politics in Maharashtra and Bihar and gaining on other fronts. They used the incident to destabilise the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) in Maharashtra and misused his name to corner votes in the Bihar election last year,” Sawant alleged.

Blaming the BJP for “preventing ‘moksha’ for Sushant’s soul”, he alleged that the saffron party tried to manipulate his death to defame the Maharashtra government of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and misrepresented it to the masses in the Bihar election.

“For its political designs, the BJP has deployed CBI, ED and NCB, but nothing has come out their probes so far We have been repeatedly demanding that the CBI should table the facts before the country on what has emerged from its probe. Nothing has come out even in the investigations by ED, NCB,” Sawant pointed out.

He demanded to know why the CBI is silent on the circumstances leading to Sushant’s reported suicide, why the BJP politicised his death and attempted to portray it as a ‘murder’, what was the outcome of the ED-NCB probe which were brought into the case and other aspects.

Sawant rued that owing to the BJP, Sushant’s sou’ has not been allowed to “rest in peace” and he has also been deprived of the respect and honour due to him after his death.

Earlier, the ruling allies, Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party, and Congress have consistently demanded that the CBI should reveal its findings in the case to clear the doubts in the minds of the people.

On its part, the CBI has responded by saying that it has not closed the Sushant death probe case and investigations still continue.
