Ayushmann Khurrana is the man of the moment. With two back-to-back successful releases this month—AndhaDhun and Badhaai Ho—he is currently having a dream run at the box office. As much as we love Ayushmann- the actor, we equally admire Ayushmann- the husband and we say this because, on the occasion of Karwa Chauth, Ayushmann fasted for his wife, Tahira Kashyap. For all those who don’t know, Tahira was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and owing to her health, Mr. Husband decided to fast for the well-being of his wife.
Ayushmann Khurrana made an appearance on Neha Dhupia’s podcast show No Filter Neha and the Vicky Donor actor revealed how one kiss in his debut film Vicky Donor brought trouble to his married life.

Thanks for your wishes & support. Last 7 days have been tough but we have decided to have a happy life state & fight this challenge. Im proud of my warrior princess. 🙏🏻❤️ Repost @tahirakashyap with @get_repost ・・・ An opportunity to give competition to the Kardashians just went wasted! A week back I mentioned about ‘my badge of honour’ that I was going to receive. And I did and am happy to share about it with the intention of it being received with love. As that’s the only reason I am posting it. Love for self and gratitude for the universe. The picture might be disturbing for some, but these drains have become my dumbells for a few days. I was detected with DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ) in my right breast with high grade malignant cells. Simply put stage 0 cancer/ pre-cancerous stage, with cancer cells multiplying in a contained area. The result I have become a half Indian version of Angelina Jolie (since only one breast was involved)! I told my doctor now is the time to give some competition to the Kardashians since Pamela is passé. But no one listened to me, so now I have a portion of my back tissue in my breast. Perhaps now I can do chin-ups with my breasts! Jokes apart, this obstacle has given me a new definition of life. Respect it’s unpredictability and have the faith and courage to be the hero of your own drama of life. The invincible human spirit is God like, gives you the courage to endure and the will to revive. There is nothing that human spirit can’t do. Also I want women of all ages to be aware. I am 35, and I was returned twice over from a mammogram. If any symptoms come up, think of it as a protective force and get yourselves examined. Also we are so obsessed with boobs. This mastectomy has left me with even more self love! Big, small, left or right inclined , gravity pulling or defying, or even none, each breast the presence or lack of it has a story to tell. Mine has made me a 2.0 version of myself! This post is dedicated to awareness, self love and resilience of a warrior that I know each one of us possesses❤️ #breastcancerawareness
On the chat show, Ayushmann spoke about how the joy of success of his Bollywood debut Vicky Donor went down the drain with one onscreen kiss.
The actor shared that his marriage headed downhill the moment his wife left his hand while watching him kiss his co-star on screen. He added that despite being aware of the script, she got cold feet while watching it on the big screen. He called it the lowest phase of their lives as it took three years for the uneasiness to fade away between the two.
Ayushmann also shared that he hates to share his food with anyone and eats at least 5 meals in a day. “Normally, the health doctors say that you should have 5 small meals a day, I have 5 big meals a day! I don't believe in sharing also. 'Thoda khana aaya hai toh ek insaan ko khane do na yaar' (Let a person alone eat the little portion that he's got!) why do you need to share food? I can't share,” said Ayushmann.
