Batman Calling… is how Emran ensured his son ate food!

Emraan Hashmi’s family went through a dark phase when his son Ayaan was diagnosed with cancer at a tender age of 5.

While on Sony Entertainment Television’s Kaun Banega Crorepati 11 for the Karamveer special episode with Purnota Dutta Bahl – who works to ensure proper nutrition for cancer affected underprivileged children –  actor Emraan Hashmi revealed how his son wouldn’t want to eat vegetables while taking chemotherapy sessions for seven whole months.

Then, Emraan and his wife devised a trick to make him eat knowing Ayaan’s immense love for superheroes, especially Batman. “It isn’t easy for a child to take chemotherapy. Naturally, he would throw fits in hospital and throw things and refuse to have food, which was much needed at that time for his immunity. When all our tactics to make him eat failed, to finally make him eat, I would go out of the hospital room and meanwhile, my wife would save my phone number as Batman and change my display picture to that of the Superhero. My wife would give the phone to him and I would convince him to eat as I know he wouldn’t refuse Batman ever. That’s how Ayaan gained proper nutrition during his time in the hospital,” Emraan said.

Supporting  Purnota, Emraan Hashmi says, “First of all I would like to thank KBC for bringing real life heroes on national television. I have been following Purnota’s work since many years because my son was diagnosed with cancer five years ago, and later my mother too became a victim of the disease. A family is emotionally devastated when somebody from that family is diagnosed with cancer. My son Ayaan’s remission phase – during which the cancer might make a comeback – was a tough phase for us as we parents go through a lot of fear psychosis. The whole process is psychologically disturbing. While researching about the disease, I got to know that nutrition plays an important role in the treatment as the body needs a strong immune system while going through the treatment. Even after the medical treatment, we have to focus on follow-up care, which involves proper nutrition and the well-being of a person,  which has been the focal point of Cuddle foundation.”

Mardaani 2 director Gopi Puthran clarifies on the Kota controversy

Gopi Puthran, writer-director of Mardaani 2, says, “Mardaani 2 addresses a huge societal issue of rape and the rise of horrific crimes committed by juveniles in India. One is deeply moved when such shocking incidents happen and as a writer, I wanted to voice this issue and bring to light a terrible reality that today’s India and its youth face. I was troubled by many, many incidents that took place across our country in the last four years and the complex nature of those crimes left me shocked and perplexed. As a human being, I felt fear after reading about these incidents because it could happen to my family or people that I know and I wanted to do my bit to make as many people aware of the threat posed by nameless, faceless, young and underage boys who are resorting to such violence.”

Mardaani 2 has been inspired by all such incidents that rocked the country and left us all scarred. Despite all the inspirations, Mardaani 2 at the end of the day is a film and not a documentary and it should be seen as that. Kota has been used by us as the setting for this film only. We are, in no way, suggesting that such events or incidents happen in Kota and there was no intention to tarnish the reputation of the city. If this has hurt or upset the sentiments of residents of the city, we are deeply regretful. We realize that since the trailer says it’s ‘Inspired By True Events’ and our film is based in Kota, it could be open to miscommunication. YRF has decided that we will remove the words ‘Inspired By True Events’ from the film to ensure that there is no further room for misinterpretation for anyone. We shot Mardaani 2 extensively in Kota and we only received love and warmth and huge cooperation from the people and all the authorities of the city. This gesture is YRF’s mark of respect to Kota and it’s wonderful people.”
