Tahira Kashyap Khurrana

Renowned Filmmaker | Author | Cancer Survivor


Tahira Kashyap Khurrana is a multi-talented woman who has carved a niche for herself despite being wife to a successful star like Ayushmann Khurrana.  Unlike other star wives she has created her own individuality with their impressive body of work as a writer, filmmaker, professor, & theatre director and last but not the least as a cancer survivor.

A mother of 2 kids, Tahira was diagnosed with stage 0 breast cancer in 2018 & had to undergo a double mastectomy. Without shying away from the ailment, Tahira chose to educate others and strived to create awareness about breast cancer by breaking the taboo and bursting myths around the ailment.

After she recovered, she became an advocate for women's health in India and continued to spread breast cancer awareness through her writing and social media. 

Tahira has been documenting her recovery journey on social media as she wishes to spread awareness about the disease and support those who are facing hard times just like her. She also started a Podcast on Audible Suno titled ‘My EX-Breast’, where she talks about fighting cancer and its effect on her family.
