Getting your sister-in-law (devrani) home might not seem to be a good deal initially as you no longer will be the sole recipient of the pampering. But over time, you will realise that she is your blessing. From gossiping and shopping to being someone you can count on like a sister, your sister-in-law will be your partner-in-everything! And for the newbie bride, the presence of her jethani makes the experience of settling down in the new house a soothing one. For Aparshakti Khurana’s wife, Aakriti Ahuja, that soothing presence was from Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife, Tahira Kashyap Khurrana.

While Ayushmann Khurrana had tied the knot with his childhood sweetheart, Tahira Kashyap on November 1, 2008, his brother, Aparshakti Khurana had decided on forever with his soulmate, Aakriti Ahuja on September 7, 2014. Aparshakti had once, in an interview, called his wedding to be straight out of Yash Chopra film, where his bhaiya and bhabhi had danced on the title track of Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana. Ayushmann and Tahira had performed the bhaiya-bhabhi duties on Aparshakti and Aakriti’s wedding and were involved in all the preparations. Tahira and Aakriti share a special bond and their admiration for each other is really an inspiration.
Though Tahira Kashyap Khurrana feels proud to be recognised as Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife, she has created a name for herself too in the industry. Tahira had co-authored a book with Ayushmann, Cracking the Code: My Journey in Bollywood and has written and directed a short film, Toffee. Not only the readers and audience have praises for Tahira, her sister-in-law, Aakriti Ahuja too, admires her bhabhi. Reposting a video on her IG story that was initially posted on a fan page, which is a TikTok video of Aakriti titled as ‘God while adding writing skills to Tahira mam’, the doting devrani wrote, “Haha! It’s true @tahirakashyap.”
Ayushmann Khurrana and Tahira Kashyap Khurrana had completed 19 years of togetherness on March 15, 2020, and to celebrate the same, Aparshakti Khurana and Aakriti Ahuja had treated the couple with a yummylicious cake. Ayushmann and Tahira had celebrated the night with their kids, Virajveer Khurrana and Varushka Khurrana and his brother and sister-in-law, Aparshakti and Aakriti. Aparshakti had posted a #FamJam selfie from the night and a picture of the lovebirds cutting the cake.

On January 23, 2020, Aakriti Ahuja had turned a year older and to mark the same, the celebrations had taken place on the birthday eve. Aakriti’s bhabhi, Tahira Kashyap Khurrana had penned down a beautiful note for her devrani with the cake-cutting video from her birthday celebration. Tahira had taken to her Instagram story and had written, “Happppy birthday @aakritiahuja For me, you are an embodiment of beauty and brains and wisdom beyond years! Lots and lots of love.” Aakriti had reposted the story and had written, “Always so sweet, thank you bhabhi” atop it. Here are the screenshots of the wishes that Aakriti had received from her husband, Aparshakti, bhabhi, Tahira and bhaiya, Ayushmann Khurrana:
In an interview with Gulf News, Tahira Kashyap Khurrana had spoken about how she is managing writing at home during the lockdown. She was quoted as saying, “I wake up really early before everyone else to write my short stories. I let an idea simmer in my head for two days and I let the characters evolve, until they start troubling me and are wanting to transfer from my head to paper. Once my house starts waking up and begins brimming with activity, it becomes tough for me to write. So, I try to wake up early and write my short stories. My stories are organic. I write my stories and then place my phone on a tissue box holder, press record and start narrating my stories. It all happens in one go … Writing and reading stories can be an indulgent, therapeutic and relaxing experience for some. I just want to evoke emotions through my stories. I want my stories to touch you emotionally.” (Also Read: Ayushmann Khurrana Reveals Whom He Can't Live Without, And It's Not His Wife Tahira, Parents Or Kids)
