Ayushmann Khurrana's wife Tahira diagnosed with breast cancer


Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife Tahira Kashyap revealed that she has been diagnosed with Stage 0 breast cancer.

Tahira Kashyap took to her Instagram account and shared this shocking news but very humorously. She called herself ‘Half Indian version of Angelina Jolie’. She shared a picture and two videos in the post and in detail talked about her breast cancer in the caption. She wrote, “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.”

Her post can further be read as, “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 its unpredictability and have the faith and courage to be the hero of your own drama of life.”

Tahira further wrote, “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.”

She went on to add, “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.” Here's her post:

Doting, loving and supporting husband, Ayushmann Khurrana instantly commented and wrote, “My warrior princess”, followed by a crown emoji. Not just him, even devarAparshakti Khurana commented and wrote, “Bhabhiiiii we love you and are soooo proud of you. THE BRAVIEST GIRL- TAHIRA KASHYAP,” followed by kisses and hugs emojis. 

We wish Tahira Kashyap a speedy recovery!
