Emraan Hashmi is a consummate family man in his personal life and often prefers to spend time with wife Parveen Shahani and son Ayaan Hashmi. He revealed in an interview that Parveen handles all his personal accounts and that he actually asks her for money! Emraan says she's his boss.
Emraan Hashmi and wife Parveen Shahani knew each other even before he forayed into Bollywood. Parveen was a school teacher then.
Emraan Hashmi and Parveen Shahani tied the knot in 2006 after dating for six years, in a private Islamic wedding ceremony. They became proud parents to son Ayaan in 2010.
Emraan Hashmi is the nephew of filmmakers Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt, and the cousin of actors Pooja Bhatt, Alia Bhatt, Rahul Bhatt and filmmaker Mohit Suri.
Emraan Hashmi is quite close to his son Ayaan. It is inspiring to know that the little boy defeated a debilitating disease like cancer at a young age and emerged triumphant. He was diagnosed with first stage cancer at the age of four in early 2014.
Emraan Hashmi was devastated after his son Ayaan was diagnosed with cancer. His films too failed to fare well at the box-office during this time.
Emraan Hashmi was by his son Ayaan's side while he was receiving cancer treatment until his full recovery. In 2016, Emraan also wrote a book titled The Kiss Of Life on Ayaan's battle with cancer.
In his book, Emraan Hashmi candidly discussed how he and his family struggled to cope with Ayaan's cancer diagnosis and treatment. He described how he strived to stay positive as each day passed.
Emraan Hashmi has stated in many interviews about how his son Ayaan's recovery against such an unconquerable disease was a huge life lesson for him as a doting dad.
On January 14, 2019, Emraan Hashmi announced that Ayaan has been declared cancer-free. He took to social media and wrote, "Today, five years after his diagnosis, Ayaan has been declared cancer free. It has been quite a journey. Thank you for all your prayers and wishes. Love and prayers for all the cancer fighters out there. Hope and belief go a long way. You can win this battle."
Emraan Hashmi values his private life greatly and used to be rarely spotted in public with Parveen and Ayaan. They used to mostly get clicked while on private dinner outings or parties on a few occasions.
But all that changed after his book's launch as Emraan Hashmi and Ayaan were especially spotted in public at several events.
On the work front, the 40-year-old was last seen in Why Cheat India. The film revolved around the corruption involved in the education system and how it hampers the future of children. The film hit the marquee on January 18, 2019.
The actor will be next seen in The Body and Chehre, and both the films are slated to hit the silver screen in 2020.
Emraan Hashmi will soon be making his digital debut with the Netflix original series Bard of Blood, which premieres on September 27 on the streaming giant. The show features Emraan in the role of a spy. The actor shared with mid-day, "You will first spot Kabir Anand (Emraan's character) in Mumbai as a literature professor, teaching Shakespeare in college.
