A few days ago, Tahira Kashyap hosted a podcast titled my ex breast on Audible. In the episode, Ayushmann Khurrana spoke about her experience during Tahira’s long battle with breast cancer. Ayushmann and Tahira recalled the first time they heard about his cancer and shared that the shocking experience threw their world into chaos. Speaking of the same, Ayushmann had said:

“We were together in Delhi when we learned of this from a doctor, we had no idea. There was a time when we were both very vulnerable sitting in a hospital. Again, you know people ask pictures of us sitting in. I was hiding behind a pillar, the security guy and I felt terrible.

Ayushmann also recalled how Nichiren Buddhism helped his wife, Tahira Kashyap, through one of the darkest times in her life. He further added that Tahira inspired him in this delicate phase and mentioned that she came out of it stronger. He had shared:

“It gave you the strength to fight head on. Now you are the victorious queen in front of me. I was happy that you were emotionally strong in a way that you are going to tackle this and fight this. We were together in that fight, but I was getting so inspired by you that you probably got stronger than me. You have a big presence. It doesn’t come from your hairstyle, it comes from your singing, from your practice, from the person you have become, your experiences in life and a bit of everything.”


After her long battle with cancer, Tahira Kashyap had gone through physical turmoil and felt extremely insecure about herself. However, she had turned to her loving husband, Ayushmann, for comfort. Reminiscing on those times, Ayushmann shared:

“When I first saw you it’s like a bald head walking with confidence. I was like wow this is so hot, seriously because your strength was everything, it was part of the personality. Your shoulders were always straight, you were never lacking in confidence. Some of me think you look better now. It’s like version 2.0 of Tahira.


We found Tahira’s video to be quite informative to better understand her cancer journey. And you? Let us know.
