Emraan Hashmi will leave for Toronto on Wednesday evening to facilitate better treatment for his son Ayan. The actor’s son was recently diagnosed with a kidney tumour.
Says Emraan’s uncle, producer Mahesh Bhatt, “We have consulted the best doctors for Ayan’s treatment and luckily for us, his prognosis look good. In fact, doctors tell us that in 99 percent of cases, children diagnosed with first stage cancer can be successfully cured.” Ayan underwent surgery on January 15 after which the actor was advised to take his son abroad for further treatment.
Accordingly, the actor has cancelled his work appointments and is now devoting all his time to Ayan’s recovery. Adds Bhatt, “Emraan was supposed to start work on Vikram Bhatt’s film, Mr X by January 15 but we have now pushed it by a month. Ayan will be admitted in one of the best children’s hospitals in Toronto; both Emraan and wife Parveen will spend two weeks in Canada and then return to Mumbai.”
