Ayushmann Khurrana and his wife Tahira Kashyap have supported each other through every struggle in their 16-year marriage. Tahira valiantly confronted a diagnosis of "stage 0" breast cancer in 2019, suffering a mastectomy and ultimately triumphing over the disease. On World Cancer Day, Ayushmann praised Tahira's unwavering attitude and uploaded a poignant post with photos of her brave fight through illness.

Ayushmann took to Instagram to share a photo of Tahira and commended her for her bravery in beating cancer. Sharing a photo of her back from after her surgery and an old photo of the both of them, Ayushmann wrote, “The girl I pulled by having samosa and chai at hut number 14 in Panjab University. ❤️ In love with your heart and spirit @tahirakashyap ❤️ #WorldCancerDay”

Tahira was diagnosed with cancer in 2018. She shared the news on Instagram in a post. She wrote, “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. This mastectomy has left me with even more self-love! 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.”

The pair has had many highs and lows along the way, and they have matured into two strong people. While Ayushmann has established himself as a bankable actor, Tahira has emerged as a formidable force in filmmaking and narrative, with novels, short films, and even an Oscar-nominated short film titled 'Bittu' to her credit.
