While Ayushmann Khurrana might be having the best year of his life, career wise but still there's a lot going on. As we all know his wife Tahira Kashyap was diagnosed with breast cancer but their latest picture proves that it's possible to smile even in the worst days.
Ayushmann and Tahira tied the knot in 2011
Tahira has undergone a mastectomy, after she was diagnosed with breast cancer at zero stage. Her surgery was a success and she also attended Ayushmann's film screening, by smiling for the shutterbags right beside him. Their latest picture is nothing but positivity and strength as Tahira lovingly looks at Ayushmann. His caption read, "'I'll be fine,' she said."
A few days ago, Tahira shared how awareness of breast cancer is a big deal and it was then when, the couple were capture in the most natural pose. The AndhaDhun star Ayushmann Khurrana revealed how taking care of a cancer-stricken wife made him think differently and how he couldn't sleep several nights.
"I think I have started looking at life in a different way altogether. I am more happy as a person, I am more patient as a person. Small things don’t bother me anymore because with an issue like that, you have to have a very healthy and happy state of mind because you are also working at the same time. Two films (AndhaDhun and Badhaai Ho) were releasing and she was in the hospital. So, in the morning, I used to promote my films and go back to the hospital in the night. I was sleepless for seven nights and seven days," he said.
Tahira shared her cancer story on Instagram by compiling her experience with dealing the cause that now she stands for. She penned an elaborate note sharing the news. She encapsulated her strength and hope while going through the situation and shared her journey from the start.
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
