Em­raan Hashmi to turn mo­ti­va­tional speaker?

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Ji­gar Shah ji­gar.shah@hin­dus­tan­times.com

In April this year, Em­raan Hashmi pub­lished his book on can­cer, which en­tails the chal­lenges his son Ayaan (6) faced when he was bat­tling with the dis­ease. The ac­tor has won praise for his sen­si­tive and touch­ing ac­count of their strug­gle.

Now, sources re­veal that the Amer­i­can Can­cer So­ci­ety (ACS), USA, has in­vited Em­raan to de­liver a talk about can­cer aware­ness at their in­sti­tute. A source says, “Em­raan is cur­rently tak­ing a short break with his fam­ily. Be­fore he re­sumes the shoot­ing for his films, he is keen to speak at the in­sti­tute. He wants to sched­ule this talk for Novem­ber, on Chil­dren’s Day (Novem­ber 14). The ACS wants him to speak on the same day as well.”

Of late, Em­raan has also been tak­ing ini­tia­tive to sup­port can­cer pa­tients by fund­ing their treat­ments. The Dirty Pic­ture (2011) star even has plans to pro­duce a docu­d­rama based on the book, with the aim of in­spir­ing peo­ple not to give up hope. We tried reach­ing the Bol­ly­wood ac­tor, but he re­mained un­avail­able for a com­ment.
