Mumbai: Actor Emraan Hashmi, who has penned his struggle and hardship around his son Ayan's cancer treatment in a book, has now added a superhero touch to it by titling it The Kiss of Life: How A Superhero and My Son Defeated Cancer.

The actor announced the title via Twitter, and thanked the publisher of the book, which is co-authored by Bilal Siddiqi.

The book will be published by Penguin Books India in three languages.

He added: “Book will release in English, Hindi and Marathi... Will update you all on the release dates soon”.

The actor, known for films like Murder and The Dirty Picture, had last year shared that with his son battling cancer, “the last two years have been the most trying phase of my life. Through it I have found two of my greatest teachers. Cancer and my son”.

Meanwhile, on the professional front, Emraan is busy with the shooting of Azhar, a biopic on former Indian cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin, and fourth instalment of Raaz franchise.
