From Twinkle Khanna's Miss Funnybones to Sonali Bendre Behl with her book The Modern Gurukul: My Experiments with Parenting, it is not unheard of for B-town actors to pen down their thoughts and turn authors. The latest celebrity to join this list is actor Emraan Hashmi, who has written a book titled ‘The Kiss of Life- How a Superhero and My Son Defeated Cancer', which has been co-authored by Bilal Siddiqui. Back in 2014, Hashmi’s four-year-old son, Ayaan, had been diagnosed with cancer. With this book, he hopes to share his difficult journey and how they triumphed in their fight against the disease. Here is everything you need to know about his book.
