Tahira on Wednesday shared pictures of her new look on social media and wrote about being ‘new me with the old self’. She expressed how it is ‘liberating’ for her after getting ‘tired of the extensions’ as she doesn’t have to ‘duck the shower while bathing or while picking up the soap’. She added that she wasn’t keen to go bald till now and was ‘stretching’ her ‘time with the good ol’ cap for too long’, but concluded that the decision ‘feels so good.’ 

Tahira’s look left B-Town impressed. While husband Ayushmann Khurrana termed her ‘hottie’, Deepika Padukone also called her ‘hot’. Hrithik Roshan described her as ‘amazing,’ Huma Qureshi termed her ‘gorgeous’, Neha Dhupia used the word ‘sundari’ (beautiful) and Dia Mirza expressed similar feelings. Atul Kasbekar was among the others who expressed his support. 

Here are the comments:

Tahira in September last year had revealed that she has been detected with DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ) in her right breast with high grade malignant cells. “Simply put stage 0 cancer/ pre-cancerous stage, with cancer cells multiplying in a contained area,” she had described it. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

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

In November, the filmmaker had shared that she is ‘dealing with cancer stage 1 a’ and that she was done with six chemotherapy sessions out of 12 and her ‘cap look’ was because of the effect the sessions have on one’s hair.  

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

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

The last chemotherapy had taken place earlier this month and Tahira had expressed her excitement about it by sharing pictures with Ayushmann in the hospital and writing, “Can’t keep calm!!! Last and final chemo! F**k yesss!! It’s been some journey. The learning has been immense, some of which, I know, I will realise with time. Thank you to each one who has been praying for me! Lots of love and prayers from my end to each one of you! My heart is bouncing with joy and gratitude🙏.” 

Tahira’s positive manner of narrating her diagnosis and treatment was lauded by Bollywood stars previously.
