It’s no secret that Ayushmann Khurrana and Tahira Kashyap’s love story is the kind of relatable, adorable, modern-day fairytale we love to love. 

Tahira Kashyap has been vocal on social media about the long and difficult journey to beating cancer – and her brave journey is definitely a source of inspiration to many.

That’s what you do when cancer shows up. You show it the way out! It is a tough phase to be in, but then I would have never known my own strength, which is inherent in each one of us, and which we come to know off when tested. Like I said before, let’s choose to be the heroes of our own drama of life. I strongly believe if an obstacle comes in your life it is for you to deal with it, overcome it, beat the shit out of it and become a better version of yourself, which could be a bit worn out but would be experienced, a bit tattered but more wise, a bit left out but more to bring forth, a bit handicapped but better equipped! So now the upgraded version of myself is dealing with cancer stage 1 a, which is still a result of early detection. I’ll be going through 12 sessions of chemotherapy. 6 down, and another 6 left. Hence the cap look nowadays😁 This post is dedicated to my journey where half the battle is won and the other half I want to fight with each of you who is enduring it. Be resilient, be strong, we shall overcome and how! Also I have immense gratitude for people around me who have taken it in the right spirit and didn’t give up on me. Personally I owe it to my best friend @komal20to77 husband @ayushmannk parents @kashyap6480 @yajankashyap . This bit is taken for granted but when professionally you are supported and still look dependable your resilience to fight becomes stronger. For this I owe it to @atulkasbekar @tanuj.garg @findingshanti @shrutiv11 who too were shocked when they heard the news but didn’t give up and still lay bet on this bruised but not broken horse. Gratitude 🙏 #earlydetection #breastcancerawareness #fuckcancer #spreadingawareness #selflovenomatterwhat #bruisedbutnotbroken #bodhisattva #sokavictor #spreadlove #compassion

Last year, Ayushmann Khurrana reversed the traditional roles, and kept a fast on Karva Chauth for Tahira’s health and well being. 


While he repeated the gesture this year, Tahira could not be with him since she was in Dubai for an event and he was shooting in India. 


And that led to one of the most adorable video calls ever, where Tahira helped Ayushmann break the fast. 

Tahira shared the video on Instagram, where she can be seen guiding him to look at her, after looking at the moon. 


She constantly repeats how sweet Ayushmann is for doing this, while he shyly comments on how it’s embarrassing to be breaking the fast in front of so many people. 


Naturally, the internet could not help but shower the two with love and blessings: 

The two of them are proof that the best kind of relationships are made of adorable gestures, love, and respect for each other.
