Since the cancer got detected in it's first stage, it's curable. The news was first broke by Emraan Hashmi's relative filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt. As per Bhatt, he received a call from Hashmi, who informed him that his "four-year-old son Ayan had been diagnosed with a tumour in his kidney that was found malignant". Mahesh Bhatt, who later visited the Hashmi household, said that Emraan was heart broken and inconsolable.
Emraan, who is presently shooting for his forthcoming film Mr X, has requested his director and producer to cancel the shoot in order to spend as much time as possible with his son.
