Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife Tahira Kashyap, who was diagnosed with breast cancer, has gone bald because she is going through a preventive mastectomy. In September, writer and filmmaker Tahira announced that she has been diagnosed with Stage 0 cancer.

On Wednesday, she took to Twitter to share a picture of her “new” self which says ‘it is liberating and feels good.’

“Hello world! That’s a new me with the old self! Was getting tired of the extensions, so this is how it is and it’s so liberating in every sense of the word, so much so that I don’t have to duck the shower while bathing or while picking up the soap! I never thought I had go bald, was stretching my time with the good ol’ cap for too long. But this feels so good,” she wrote.


Ayushmann re-tweeted Tahira’s post and called her a “hottie”.

Earlier, Tahira shared on social media that she was detected with DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ) in her right breast with high-grade malignant cells. She returned to work after mastectomy in November.
