Emraan Hashmi feels it is tough to make a documentary. Here’s why
Many would be aware that actor Emraan Hashmi’s son Ayaan Hashmi was diagnosed with first-stage cancer at the age of four, in early 2014. Post his treatment, the actor came out with a book titled ‘The Kiss of Life: How A Superhero and My Son Defeated Cancer’ to help and raise awareness about this disease. After sharing this story with everyone, the actor is all set to start working on a documentary on cancer. Recently, the actor chose to speak about how tough it is to make a documentary and the reason behind it are the doubts about its commercial value.
While speaking about it, Emraan Hashmi said, “Documentary is the first (priority). We will see when it will see light of the day. Getting an outlet for that in this country is very difficult because not many documentary films are made.” [sic] (Also Read: Emraan Hashmi: Have kissed ‘Murder’ and ‘Raaz’ franchise goodbye)

The documentary is tentatively titled ‘The C Word’.
Recently, the actor has even supported #1SmallStepforCancer campaign to advance emergency fundraising for child cancer. The campaign was initiated by 1SmallStep Foundation in association with Rotary Club of Mumbai Queens Necklace.
Talking about getting associated with such initiatives about the disease, Emraan said, “I have learnt a lot along the way… I want to lend my name wherever I can.” [sic]
On the professional front, the actor was last seen in ‘Baadshaho’ which was a multi-starrer along with actors Ajay Devgn, Ileana D’Cruz, Esha Gupta and Vidyut Jammwal playing the lead roles. The movie is performing well at the box office.
