Actor Emran Hashmi revealed that his Selfiee co-star Akshay Kumar was the first to call him when his son Ayaan Hashmi was battling cancer a few years back.

Emraan married Parveen Shahani in December 2006. They welcomed Ayaan in February 2010. After almost four years, on January 15, 2014, Ayaan was diagnosed with cancer. In January 2019, Ayaan became cancer free.

As quoted by Indian Express, Emraan spoke of Akshay: “I have followed him as a fan, I have worshiped him. I have had the privilege of knowing him over the years. He was there for me when there was a health problem with my son. He was the first to call and assist me, assist our family. I didn’t know him very well then. Many people surround you in your good times, but as for mein jo farishtey aate hai (the angels who come to you in your hard times), that is Akshay.”

Speaking of multi-starrers, Emraan also said, “For me, only the content is important, it doesn’t matter if it is a solo hero, two heroes or three hero movie. I don’t know why too many multi-starrers aren’t made. They are being made, but more films should be made, because they have been successful if you look at the trend of the last two years and since the beginning of cinema.”
