Ayushmann Khurrana's wife Tahira Kashyap talks about the rough patch in their marriage before they could emerge as one of the strongest couples in Bollywood industry. She said that Ayushmann Khurrana didn't have the time to take her along with him and she lost her patience to understand actor husband.
Tahira told Spotboye in an interview, “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,” as they were having the rough patch post the release of Vicky Donor.
She even said, “I had given up many times but he did not. He didn’t use to give up but he also didn’t make up... We both have really evolved as artists, as companions and we have seen a journey including cancer being a part of it. Where we are right now, it is at its strongest best.”
Tahira Kashyap also said she didn't want to bring shame to the actor by making a short film. Adding to the same, she said, “He has reached a certain professional point of his career and I didn’t want to be a shame. I was very scared of what people would think. We are our biggest enemies,” she said. On being asked about how Ayushmann reacted to her plans of directing, she said, “I didn’t even tell him for the longest time that I wanted to be a director.” All this happened when Ayushmann Khurrana took a leap in his career.
Also, Ayushmann Khurrana has always supported wife Tahira Kashyap even while she was fighting her toughest battle against cancer.
Tahira will now come back with her directorial debut which will be produced by Tanuj Garg and Atul Kasbekar. She told, “It will be shot entirely in Mumbai. It’s a slice-of-life film, which will have 5 girls.” When asked about if any girl who will be more like Tahira? “Oh, there’s a bit of Tahira in every girl in that bunch of five,” she confessed.
