Ayushmann Khurrana and his wife, Tahira Kashyap have been the talk of the town ever since his acting career took off. Together since 20 years, the two high-school sweethearts have supported each other through thick and thin.
In a recent Instagram post, Tahira Kashyap revealed that she had been detected with Stage 0 breast cancer and underwent a mastectomy procedure. As saddening as this news is, Tahira's unshaken spirit and positive outlook towards the situation is commendable.
In the post, Tahira mentions her illness as a 'Badge Of Honour' and how this obstacle has given her a new definition of life. Ayushmann also supported his wife by posting an adorable comment on the post.
Spreading awareness about breast cancer, Tahira added, “I want women of all ages to be aware. I am 35, and I was returned twice over from a mammogram. If any symptoms come up, think of it as a protective force and get yourselves examined. This post is dedicated to awareness, self-love and resilience of a warrior that I know each one of us possesses."

An opportunity to give competition to the Kardashians just went wasted! A week back I mentioned about ‘my badge of honour’ that I was going to receive. And I did and am happy to share about it with the intention of it being received with love. As that’s the only reason I am posting it. Love for self and gratitude for the universe. The picture might be disturbing for some, but these drains have become my dumbells for a few days. I was detected with DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ) in my right breast with high grade malignant cells. Simply put stage 0 cancer/ pre-cancerous stage, with cancer cells multiplying in a contained area. The result I have become a half Indian version of Angelina Jolie (since only one breast was involved)! I told my doctor now is the time to give some competition to the Kardashians since Pamela is passé. But no one listened to me, so now I have a portion of my back tissue in my breast. Perhaps now I can do chin-ups with my breasts! Jokes apart, this obstacle has given me a new definition of life. Respect it’s unpredictability and have the faith and courage to be the hero of your own drama of life. The invincible human spirit is God like, gives you the courage to endure and the will to revive. There is nothing that human spirit can’t do. Also I want women of all ages to be aware. I am 35, and I was returned twice over from a mammogram. If any symptoms come up, think of it as a protective force and get yourselves examined. Also we are so obsessed with boobs. This mastectomy has left me with even more self love! Big, small, left or right inclined , gravity pulling or defying, or even none, each breast the presence or lack of it has a story to tell. Mine has made me a 2.0 version of myself! This post is dedicated to awareness, self love and resilience of a warrior that I know each one of us possesses❤️ #breastcancerawareness #selflove #determination #faith #bodhisattva #bodhisattvaoftheearth
In a recent interview, Ayushmann Khurana also expressed his happiness on his wife's successful surgery saying, "Today is a good day as she is discharged now. We got the shocker. I am glad the surgery happened and was successful. She is a fighter." The two are the real definition of couple goals, amirite?
Tahira, we wish you a speedy recovery. More power to you, superwoman!
