In 2018, Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife, Tahira Kashyap was diagnosed with DCIS (Ductal Carcinoma In Situ) in her right breast with high-grade malignant cells. And it was Ayushmann, who stood by her as a constant pillar of strength and source of happiness in the gloomy days.

Ayushmann Khurrana had once shared in an interview with a media portal that he wants his wife, Tahira Kashyap to direct him. Reacting to his wish, Tahira had shared in an interview with The News Pocket, “At home, we’re equals but professionally, he’s my senior now. He may want me to direct him, but I also have to be in a position to do that. I have to earn it, and he has to like my script. It doesn’t seem right to start my feature with him in it just because he’s my husband.”
Ayushmann Khurrana and his awesome wife, Tahira Kashyap have redefined love by proving that it is not only about a bed full of roses, but it requires sufficient amount of water (read ‘efforts, care and compassion’) to grow. Ayushmann and Tahira had met at a tuition centre and since then, despite the ups and downs in their relationship, they have stood for each other as strong pillars of support. While Tahira had helped him achieve his dreams, Ayushmann became her biggest support during her cancer battle.

In an interview with the IANS, Ayushmann had revealed how stardom comes at a price and had said, “I hardly get time with my family anymore. I was in Bombay for a couple of days but I hardly spent time (with my family). Living out of a suitcase is not easy. It makes life difficult.” (Also Read: Tahira Kashyap Opens Up On Being Insecure About Her Husband, Ayushmann Khurana's Intimate Scenes)
