Emraan Hashmi's Son Ayaan Talks About His Battle With Cancer. Sonali Bendre Calls Him A Warrior

05 Feb, 2020

    Emraan Hashmi's son Ayaan, a 10-year-old cancer survivor, has been trending for his heart-touching speech on World Cancer Day on Tuesday.

     

    On Wednesday evening, Emraan Hashmi re-shared the post Instagrammed by his wife Parveen Hashmi with these words: "Ayaan's talk for World Cancer Day at Carter Road Amphitheatre." Ayaan was speaking at an event organised by Sanjay Dutt's sister Priya Dutt for the Nargis Dutt Foundation, which was headlined by Sonali Bendre, also a cancer survivor.

     

    Thanking the organisers for giving such a platform to Ayaan, Parveen wrote: "Thank you Priya Dutt and Nargis Dutt Foundation for giving Ayaan this opportunity." Ayaan's speech, which you can hear in the videos below, put a smile on Sonali Bendre's face, who gave the young cancer survivor a standing ovation.

     

    She also dedicated a post to her "youngest motivator" and wrote: "I met my youngest motivator, Ayaan Hashmi, who is just 10 years old and is truly a canvas of positivity! The way he spoke about his journey was far beyond his age!"

    A post shared by Emraan Hashmi (@therealemraan) on Feb 5, 2020 at 7:30am PST

     

    Ayaan began his speech by saying: "I'm over here to tell you one thing - cancer is horrible in so many ways. But it has taught me so much - how to be strong, joyful and enjoy life." Ayaan was diagnosed with cancer in 2014 when he was all of four and it's only in 2019 that Emraan Hashmi revealed that his son was cancer-free after five years of treatment.

     

    Ayaan continued his speech with these words: "Cancer, that I told you before, is horrible. It's horrible. It hurts you mentally and physically but after I survived cancer, my whole life has changed. It taught me 'I was strong, I was a fearless leader'."

     

    10-year old Ayaan ended his speech on an inspiring note as he said: "For (fighting) cancer, you only need a few qualities which I think everyone over here has. You need to be strong, fearless and a fighter. To end my speech, I will say one sentence: Cancer is curable. Thank you.
