After learning that his son Ayaan had cancer, Emraan Hashmi claimed that Akshay Kumar was the first person to call him. Ayaan was given a cancer diagnosis on January 15, 2014.
The actor Emraan Hashmi claimed that when his son Ayaan Hashmi was battling illness a few years ago, it was Akshay Kumar, who called him first. Speaking at the Selfie trailer premiere in Mumbai on Sunday, Emraan also referred to Akshay Kumar as a “angel” who supported him during a difficult time.
In December 2006, Emraan married Parveen Shahani. Ayaan was welcomed in February 2010. After nearly four years, on January 15, 2014, Ayaan was diagnosed with cancer. In January 2019, Ayaan became cancer-free.
Emraan said about Akshay, as reported by Indian Express, “I’ve followed him as a fan, I’ve adored him. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know him over the past few years. He was there for me when there was a health issue with my son. He was the first one to call and stand by me, stand by family our family. I didn’t know him well back then. A lot of people surround you in your good times but bure waqt mein jo farishtey aate hai (the angels who come to you in your tough times), that’s Akshay.”
