Tahira Kashyap Shows Us True Beauty Lies In The Eyes Of The Beholder, Shares A Post-Cancer Bald Look

Ayushmann Khurrana has had the kind of year actors dream about, from winning audiences with spectacular performances in back-to-back hit films, Andhadhun and Badhai Ho to leaving every critics mouth dropped with his box-office numbers. While things were finally shaping for him in his filmy career, things were bit different in his personal life as his lady-love, Tahira Kashyap was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer. But the couple continued to hold their ground and became a wall of strength for each other in the difficult times.

Ayushmann even kept the Karwachauth fast for his wife’s healthy life. Last year in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Ayushmann revealed the reason behind keeping the fast. He said, “For the past two years we have been fasting together. This is the first time Tahira couldn’t, as she’s undergoing chemotherapy. I decided to go ahead with it alone. She was really touched.” He further added, “It was kind of a role reversal in this patriarchal world but came straight from the heart. Even on my family WhatsApp group, everyone was giving us their blessings.”

Tahira and Ayushmann switched on their brave mode and won the big fight. On January 5, 2019, Tahira had her final chemotherapy session and she shared the news on her Instagram handle with a series of happy boomerangs. Tahira wrote, “Can’t keep calm!!! Last and final chemo! Fuck yesss!! It’s been some journey. The learning has been immense, some of which, I know, I will realise with time. Thank you to each one who has been praying for me! Lots of love and prayers from my end to each one of you! My heart is bouncing with joy and gratitude #newyearhereicome #2019 #breastcancerwarrior”.

While the couple is now living a cancer-free life, Tahira decided to ditch her hair extensions and embrace her bald look like a total boss! Today, on January 16, 2018, the director shared her bald look with the millions of cancer fighters. She wrote the following caption, “Hello world! That’s a new me with the old self! Was getting tired of the extensions, so this is how it is and it’s so liberating in every sense of the word, so much so that I don’t have to duck the shower while bathing or while picking up the soap! I never thought I had go bald, was stretching my time with the good ol’ cap for too long. But this feels so good #breastcancerawareness #baldisbeautiful #selflovenomatterwhat”.

In an earlier interview with Mid-Day, a clam and composed Ayushmann shared that after they found that Tahira had been diagnosed with cancer, the two decided to take it positively. He stated, “She was diagnosed on my birthday (September 14). We had to maintain a happy life state to deal with it. In fact, after we got to know about her condition, we went to see Manmarziyaan that evening. We told ourselves, ‘Okay, we’ve been diagnosed. We can’t go home and cry about it. It’s better to go for a film.’ So, we watched the film, came back and got the date for her operation.

Tahira and Ayushmann had a filmy start to their love story. In an interview DNA, the couple shared how it all began. Tahira revealed the details of their first meeting, “We would go to the same Physics class and I had a crush on Ayushmann. I never thought we’d talk. Also, in Chandigarh, if a girl is slightly good looking, the boys keep hounding her. In most cases, it’s like harassment. But he didn’t approach me throughout the year and I was like, here’s one guy who isn’t troubling me.” On which Ayushmann quipped, “Kissi ne mujhe kabhi palatke hi nahin dekha!” To which Tahira added, “Rubbish! I got good vibes from him. Our parents were friends and they invited us to dinner. Aur inka ghar bahut zyada filmy tha. There was this huge Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham portrait of him, his mom, dad, and his brother. My friend and I wanted to know how we would fare in the exams since his dad is an astrologer. Then he came and bowled me over with a song.”

Well, Tahira is definitely a source of inspiration for many cancer survivors.
