After actors Irrfan Khan and Sonali Bendre, Ayushmann Khurrana's wife Tahira Kashyap has now been diagnosed with Cancer. Ahead of breast cancer awareness month, Tahira Kashyap has been diagnosed with Stage 0 breast cancer. On Saturday, the actor's wife took to Instagram to break the news to her followers. As Tahira shared a series of pictures from the hospital, several celebrities extended their good wishes to her and Ayushmann Khurrana. Appreciating her spirit to fight the disease was actress Sonali Bendre who is herself undergoing treatment in New York after being diagnosed with high-grade cancer in July.
Commenting on Tahira's post, Sonali Bendre wrote, 'Absolutely love your spirit. Sending you lots of love.' To which Tahira replied, 'It is you who is so inspiring! I see you as the epitome of resilience and human spirit! Have been sending you prayers. Much Love.'
Several celebrities including Shilpa Shetty, Ekta Kapoor, Pulkit Samrat too sent out their wishes to the couple to stay strong in this difficult period.
In her post, the writer, director wrote: 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#selflove #determination #faith#bodhisattva #bodhisattvaoftheearth
Ayushmann too shared her post and calling his wife a warrior princess, he wrote, "Thanks for your wishes & support. Last 7 days have been tough but we have decided to have a happy life state & fight this challenge. I'm proud of my warrior princess."
Actors Irrfan Khan and Sonali Bendre are already going under treatment for Neuroendocrine Tumor and Metastic Cancer respectively.
