Ayushmann Khurrana and Tahira Kashyap attended DeepVeer reception (Instagrammed photo)
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh’s third, yet star-struck, wedding reception saw several Bollywood celebrities walk in, raising the glamour quotient exponentially. Among the invitees was a fighter couple, who stole the paparazzi's attention, as they posed adorning a bright smile for the camera. Badhaai Ho star Ayushmann Khurrana with his wife Tahira Kashyap, who is battling with breast cancer, graced the event in a ‘golden armour’.
Ayushmann on Sunday, took to his Instagram handle to share pictures of last night, with a caption that read, “Set to go the most happy couple’s celebration with the beautiful fighter in a golden armour. #TahiraKashyap.”
Tahira also shared a series of pictures from the reception night on her Instagram and wrote, “My heart was genuinely smiling being a part of such a gracious, good-looking couple’s @deepikapadukone and @ranveersingh happy moment. It is their special day but somehow they end up making others feel so remarkably good and special about themselves. God bless you both. Much love.”

My heart was genuinely smiling ( doesn’t look it in the pics but was posing and all 😁) being a part of such a gracious, good looking couple’s @deepikapadukone @ranveersingh happy moment . It is their special day but somehow they end up making others feel so remarkably good and special about themselves. God bless you both. Much love❤️ Styled by @leepakshiellawadi Mua @heemadattani Hair @poonam.solanki.522
While Tahira was draped in Leepakshi Ellawadi’s gorgeous golden silk saree paired with a full-sleeved blouse, the handsome dimple-smiled star looked dashing in a black tuxedo. Tahira had her hair tied in a bun and the Kundan earrings complemented her beauty.
Mother of two, Tahira had revealed about her diagnosis with “stage 0” breast cancer earlier this September and undergone a mastectomy procedure. So far the actor has undergone six sessions of chemotherapy. Tahira is now preparing for the next six sessions. The actor-turned-director took to her Instagram account to share her journey while battling cancer till now.
Posing in a trendy orange t-shirt that reads, “F##k Cancer” and a swagger cap, Tahira wrote, “That’s what you do when cancer shows up. You show it the way out! It is a tough phase to be in, but then I would have never known my own strength, which is inherent in each one of us, and which we come to know off when tested. Like I said before, let’s choose to be the heroes of our own drama of life.”

That’s what you do when cancer shows up. You show it the way out! It is a tough phase to be in, but then I would have never known my own strength, which is inherent in each one of us, and which we come to know off when tested. Like I said before, let’s choose to be the heroes of our own drama of life. I strongly believe if an obstacle comes in your life it is for you to deal with it, overcome it, beat the shit out of it and become a better version of yourself, which could be a bit worn out but would be experienced, a bit tattered but more wise, a bit left out but more to bring forth, a bit handicapped but better equipped! So now the upgraded version of myself is dealing with cancer stage 1 a, which is still a result of early detection. I’ll be going through 12 sessions of chemotherapy. 6 down, and another 6 left. Hence the cap look nowadays😁 This post is dedicated to my journey where half the battle is won and the other half I want to fight with each of you who is enduring it. Be resilient, be strong, we shall overcome and how! Also I have immense gratitude for people around me who have taken it in the right spirit and didn’t give up on me. Personally I owe it to my best friend @komal20to77 husband @ayushmannk parents @kashyap6480 @yajankashyap . This bit is taken for granted but when professionally you are supported and still look dependable your resilience to fight becomes stronger. For this I owe it to @atulkasbekar @tanuj.garg @findingshanti @shrutiv11 who too were shocked when they heard the news but didn’t give up and still lay bet on this bruised but not broken horse. Gratitude 🙏 #earlydetection #breastcancerawareness #fuckcancer #spreadingawareness #selflovenomatterwhat #bruisedbutnotbroken #bodhisattva #sokavictor #spreadlove #compassion
Ayushmann has proved himself to be a darling and supportive husband from time and again. The couple has been married since 2011 and has a 6-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter.
