Ayushmann and Tahira had their own share of ups and downs, they didn't have a 'perfect' love story, yet they had constantly put efforts to turn it into one. A couple of days ago, Tahira had talked about being insecure in an interview with the Hindustan Times. In another media interaction, she had talked about giving up on her marriage but had admired Ayushmann spirits of never giving up on her. That's the beauty of their love, Ayushmann and Tahira have stood for each other in times of need and have shown us that it takes a lot of effort to turn your love story into a 'happily ever after'.
Recently, Tahira made an appearance on Romedy Now's, The Love Laugh Live Show and spilled the beans on her dating phase with Ayushmann. She revealed that they had met each other for the first time while taking physics tuition and for the longest time, she thought his name was 'Abhishek'.

Ayushmann is a doting husband and never shies away from blending ritual. The actor had made headlines last year and this year too, for keeping a Karwa Chauth fast for the love of his life, Tahira. The star-wife had taken to Instagram and had shared an adorable video of Ayushmann breaking his fast on a video call. Along with it, she had written, "Embarrassing you further @ayushmannk. Our #Karvachauth moment! While I am in Dubai for an event, my certainly better half keeps a fast for me on his set! (p.s I am still popping some pills so couldn't fast) But how adorable are you Mr A Our #karvachauth moment! While I am in Dubai for an event, my certainly better half keeps a fast for me on his set! (p.s I am still popping some pills so couldn’t fast) But how adorable are you Mr A ! Love you so much #fastinghusbands thank you @shrutiv11 for capturing this moment!" Take a look at it below:
In a 2017 interview with the Mid-Day, Ayushmann had talked about his wife, Tahira and how she has been his constant pillar of support. He had said, "When I got married, I had no money. Tahira has been doing better than me professionally for the longest time. She was gutsy enough to marry a man just for love and have faith in his talent. She is a rockstar; she was a professor, had her own PR firm in Chandigarh. She was also the programming head of a radio station in Punjab."
He had further added, "She supported me in every possible way. I was a struggling actor, which is often a gamble. But there was never any ego between us. When there's love, there's no scope for ego. Most men in India aren't secure enough to be comfortable with such an arrangement. It comes with the family. It depends on how your father treats your mother. But a man, no matter where he comes from, could always trigger a change. If it's a patriarchal family, the dynamics are different. In my case, Tahira became the daughter in a household that had none."
Ayushmann and Tahira had gotten married in the year 2011 when he was struggling with his acting career. But then his debut film, Vicky Donor (2012) came and left the entire world in awe of him. This was the time when their marriage had also hit the rough patch. In an interview with SpotboyE, Tahira had talked about the same and had said, “I had a problem with him kissing on screen. I felt like a big, huge fat whale sitting at home. When you are pregnant your hormones also go up and down. Here this boy is looking at his youngest youth best and he is romancing women and what is this onscreen kiss! We both were very young. He didn’t have the time and patience to take me along and I didn’t have the patience to understand. There was this disconnect that we were not there for each other to take each other along in that journey. Somewhere he knew that she doesn’t mean mad. I also knew he wasn’t cheating. I had to evolve as a person to understand what art is." (Don't Miss: Arhaan Khan Confesses His Feelings For Rumoured Ladylove, Rashami Desai Post Eviction From BB House)
