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.
