Ayushmann Khurrana is currently riding high on the back-to-back success of his two films- AndhaDhun and Badhaai Ho. However, he is experiencing a personal low ever since his wife Tahira Kashyap was diagnosed with DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ) in her right breast with high grade malignant cells. You can simply read this as stage 0 cancer. Now, in the latest post, Tahira has revealed she has been diagnosed with stage 1 cancer. Ayushmann Khurrana’s Badhaai Ho is real winner; beats Baahubali 2’s record at the box office
In an emotional yet inspirational, Tahira wrote, ''That’s what you do when it shows up, show it the way out! I believe if an obstacle comes your way it is for you to beat the sh*t out of it & become a better version of yourself, which is a bit worn out but experienced, tattered but more wise, handicapped but better equipped!”
She further wrote that the better version of herself is now battling stage 1 cancer and she will be undergoing through 12 chemotherapy sessions. Hence, she will be donning cap from now onwards. She also thanked her husband and parents for being her constant support. On the professional front, she expressed her gratitude to Atul Kasbekar and others.

That’s what you do when cancer shows up. You show it the way out! It is a tough phase to be in, but then I would have never known my own strength, which is inherent in each one of us, and which we come to know off when tested. Like I said before, let’s choose to be the heroes of our own drama of life. I strongly believe if an obstacle comes in your life it is for you to deal with it, overcome it, beat the shit out of it and become a better version of yourself, which could be a bit worn out but would be experienced, a bit tattered but more wise, a bit left out but more to bring forth, a bit handicapped but better equipped! So now the upgraded version of myself is dealing with cancer stage 1 a, which is still a result of early detection. I’ll be going through 12 sessions of chemotherapy. 6 down, and another 6 left. Hence the cap look nowadays😁 This post is dedicated to my journey where half the battle is won and the other half I want to fight with each of you who is enduring it. Be resilient, be strong, we shall overcome and how! Also I have immense gratitude for people around me who have taken it in the right spirit and didn’t give up on me. Personally I owe it to my best friend @komal20to77 husband @ayushmannk parents @kashyap6480 @yajankashyap . This bit is taken for granted but when professionally you are supported and still look dependable your resilience to fight becomes stronger. For this I owe it to @atulkasbekar @tanuj.garg @findingshanti @shrutiv11 who too were shocked when they heard the news but didn’t give up and still lay bet on this bruised but not broken horse. Gratitude 🙏 #earlydetection #breastcancerawareness #fuckcancer #spreadingawareness #selflovenomatterwhat #bruisedbutnotbroken #bodhisattva #sokavictor #spreadlove #compassion
Earlier, in a tweet, Tahira shared a photograph in which she can be seen heading to her workplace in a car. She wrote, ''Work starts...preproduction. Happy Thanksgiving. Gratitude.'' Retweeting Tahira's post, Ayushmann wrote that he is proud of her.
On a related note, Tahira was diagnosed with stage 0 cancer on Ayushmann's birthday. However, instead of crying, the couple decided to battle it bravely. ''She was diagnosed on my birthday. 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,” she told Mid-Day.
Tahira and Ayushmann are parents to two children- Virajveer and Varushka.
