Ayushmann Khurrana is a proud husband who never misses a chance to appreciate his wife’s positivity and indomitable spirit. And well, she deserves all the appreciation! On World Cancer Day, the actor celebrated the strength and scars of his wife, and cancer survivor, with a powerful picture.
In the picture, that is both, bold and beautiful, Tahira proudly flaunts her bare back with mastectomy scars. Saluting the courage with which she is fighting the battle against cancer, Ayushmann wrote in an emotionally powerful post, “Paa le tu aisi Fateh.

Samandar teri pyaas se darey. These lines are for you @tahirakashyap. Your scars are beautiful. You are a trailblazer. Keep inspiring the millions to fight their toughest personal battles. Be the lifer you are!”
The picture was taken by photographer Atul Kasbekar and was first shared by Tahira herself with the caption, “Today is my day! Wish you all a happy #worldcancerday and hope each one of us celebrates this day in an embracing way. That we remove any stigma or taboo associated with it. That we spread awareness about it and that we have self love no matter what. I truly embrace all my scars as they are my badges of honour. 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. 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”
Tahira has been inspiring millions by posting powerful pictures of herself on social media. Recently, she ditched her hair extensions and embraced a shaved head. We salute the grace with which she is fighting the disease and the devotion with which husband Ayushmann supports her.
