Emraan Hashmi endured a challenging period in his personal life when his son, Ayaan Hashmi, was diagnosed with first-stage cancer in 2014. In a recent interview, Emraan reflected on the resilience exhibited by his family during those trying times. He also shared a pragmatic piece of advice offered by Mahesh Bhatt, which helped him navigate his career while fulfilling his responsibilities towards his son.

Speaking on Radio Nasha, Emraan said, “My family and I had the resilience to just get through that phase. You don’t feel the best because you don’t know what the future entails but there is a survival spirit that leads you. I had to push through. There is also a professional need which was very difficult to manage. After all, this is real world.”

Revealing Mahesh Bhatt’s advice, Emraan said, “When my son was diagnosed, at that time Bhatt sahab (Mahesh Bhatt), who is a realist and also my guru, told me something. He knows how people think. The industry is very realistic. They feel for you, they will help you but there is also this situation that people have put their money on you. So Bhatt sahab told me that you have to call every producer that you are working with and assure them that you will complete their films. This was two weeks into my son’s illness. He told me that they will be with you but they will also think of their investment, which is fair or unfair I don’t know but that’s how the world is.”

He added, “I told them that I am going for one-and-a-half month although my son was being treated for almost seven months in Canada. I flew back. I had to actually lie to my son. I told him that I am coming back. I flew back to India, finished those films and then went to Canada. That was a tough phase.”

Five years after his diagnosis, Ayaan Hashmi was declared cancer free in 2019.
