“I truly embrace all my scars as they are my badges of honor. There is nothing known as perfect. Happiness lies in truly accepting yourself. This was a tough one for me. But this picture was my decision as I want to celebrate not the disease but the spirit with which I endured,” she said. Atul Kasbekar was the man behind the camera for this pic.

Happiness lies in truly accepting yourself. This was a tough one for me. But this picture was my decision as I want to celebrate not the disease but the spirit with which I endured. To quote my mentor, Diasaku Ikeda, “Leading an undefeated life is eternal victory. Not being defeated, never giving up, is actually a greater victory than winning, not being defeated means having the courage to rise to the challenge. However many times we’re knocked down, the important thing is we keep getting up and taking one step-even a half step- forward” #worldcancerday #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerwarrior #turningkarmaintomission #boddhisatva Thanks @atulkasbekar for this one❤️
Tahira and Ayushmann’s Married Life
Tahira and Ayushmann’s touched its lowest a few years back during the shoot of Vicky Donor thanks to the lovemaking scene of Ayushmann Khurana with Yami Gautam.
In a recent interview with the famous film journalist Anupama Chopra, Tahira Kashyap said “I was this crazy, insecure pregnant person when Vicky Donor happened and that was the worst phase for the both of us. I think both of us were very immature. I’m sure he didn’t have the maturity to kind of hold my hand and tell me it’s okay, especially, when I am crazy or my hormones because I was pregnant at the time and I also didn’t have the maturity to just take it easy and say that this thing will get over.”
“Both of us lacked maturity at that point of time and you also feel like a whale and considering your husband is with beautiful women all around and you don’t come from that background, you even have the maturity you have that passion towards the fact that you understand art you but you don’t have the maturity to kind of deal with the frills that come along,” Tahira added.
“I was very lost and so was he honestly speaking, but thankfully for us knowing each other for the past nine-ten years before marriage really helped because I know that he’s not a bad guy and he knows that she’s not a bad girl, so I think that kind of sustained and they we kind of made peace with it,” she said.
However, that’s a closed chapter now and we hope she wins her battle against cancer and returns back healed and healthy.
We wish her luck and good health and hope for a speedy recovery…
