"The Kiss Of Life – How a Superhero & My Son Defeated Cancer" is Emraan's first book co-authored with Bilal Siddiqui.

It traces the effect the disease can have on a child and his emotional journey from diagnosis, through the treatment, to being cancer free for 2 years.

As we go by the tagline of the book, the 36-year old actor believes that his son Ayaan is a true superhero who defeated cancer. The book is about the compilation of the experiences of his son, a cancer survivor, which according to him will help the family as well as a cancer patient to cope with the stress and the emotional trauma of illness.

The unveiling of the book cover was launched at the India Habitat Center, New Delhi which is considered to be the capital's oldest literary and cultural center. It was organized and hosted by Penguin Random House India, which also celebrated its 8th anniversary the same day.

Kavaree Bamzai, the Editor of India Today, accompanied with the Special Guest of the evening Sonali Bendre, the Bollywood actress and the author of "Modern Gurukul." Emraan Hashmi along with Bilal Siddiqui started off with an interesting discussion and an intimate chat about parenting.

Emraan quoted as saying, "This book is a part of my life, and it’s about a phase which, in its way, was a cathartic experience. I would say it's equal to forty movies that I have done.”

His tweet says, "So happy to announce the title of my book… ‘The Kiss of Life: How A Superhero and My Son Defeated Cancer’. Thank you @husainzaidi @[email protected], @mileeashwarya, @PenguinIndia for supporting me through this entire journey."
