He shared some adorable pictures of his son.
Born in February 2010, Ayaan, the first child of Emraan and his wife Parveen Shahani, was diagnosed with first stage cancer in early 2014 at the age of four. Although in the beginning Emraan was quite shaken and would keep questioning where he went wrong, he later began to help raise awareness about the disease and share their story.
He also released a book titled The Kiss of Life: How A Superhero and My Son Defeated Cancer, to raise awareness about the deadly disease and share his story. The book chronicles his career, family life, the birth of his son, his cancer and treatment.
