Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Shalvi Man­gaokar

This Di­wali, Em­raan Hashmi is set to do some­thing spe­cial for kids at a Mum­bai hospi­tal. The 36-yearold ac­tor will visit the hospi­tal to spend the fes­ti­val with kids who have can­cer. Last year, Em­raan’s son, Ayaan, was di­ag­nosed with a ma­lig­nant tu­mour in his kid­ney. Af­ter a six-month­long treat­ment, Ayaan fi­nally re­cov­ered. Hence, Em­raan is aware of the strug­gles that a child faces be­cause of can­cer. He will also take some good­ies for th­ese kids.

A source close to Em­raan re­veals, “He will be go­ing there in the next two to three days. In all like­li­hood, he will visit them on Di­wali eve Di­wali (Novem­ber 11). He plans to gift them sweets and toys as well.”

The source adds that there is no agenda be­hind Em­raan’s visit. “There isn’t a for­mal event as such. This is just some­thing that he wishes to do,” adds the in­sider.

When con­tacted, the Bol­ly­wood ac­tor’s spokesper­son con­firmed the news.
