Ayushmann Khurrana's wife Tahira Kashyap was detected with breast cancer. She took to her Instagram account, to share the heartbreaking news on Saturday.

Posting the pictures of her in the hospital she wrote, "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."

She further said, "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."

Tahira had been a source of inspiration to a lot of women by such strong disposition of herself, "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 was dedicated to spreading awareness, promote self-love and resilience of a warrior, Tahira affirmed.

Both Ayushmann and Tahira have been really strong and are going to fight the battle head-on.

Tahira recently directed a short feature film titled 'Toffee'. There is another film directed by her which is in the pipeline and whose title will be released soon.

Meanwhile, Ayushmann is ready to treat his fans with his upcoming movie titled 'Andhadhun', which is slated to hit the big screens on October 5, this year.

The two share an amazing chemistry and have been married for eight years now. The couple has two children, Virajveer and Varushk.

We wish Tahira a speedy recovery.
