Writer, director and actor Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife Tahira Kashyap has revealed that she is suffering from breast cancer on her Instagram handle. Sharing a picture of herself she said,
“That’s what you do when it shows up, show it the way out! I believe if an obstacle comes your way it is for you to beat the sh*t out of it & become a better version of yourself, which is a bit worn out but experienced, tattered but more wise, handicapped but better equipped!”.
“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.”
A few days ago she had shared a tweet in which she wrote “Work starts...preproduction. Happy Thanksgiving. Gratitude.” Other than tweeting, Tahira also shared a picture where she can be seen sitting in a car heading to her work. Husband Ayushmann Khurrana retweeted the picture and said that he is proud of her.
Ayushmann during an interview with one of the leading dailies said, “I am glad I have a partner like Tahira who is very brave, strong, who is an inspiration. I have started seeing life through a different prism.” The couple has two children named Virajveer and Varushka.
Tahira on 22nd September has revealed that she has been diagnosed with pre-invasive breast cancer. She shared with all of us that she was suffering from cancer by sharing an Instagram post. She also mentioned that she was suffering from DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ) in her right breast with high-grade malignant cells. She said, “Simply put stage 0 cancer/pre-cancerous stage, with cancer cells multiplying in a contained area.”
