In a recent interview, the actor opened up, he said, “I was very difficult. Very difficult and thanks to her that she was brave enough to take that positively, otherwise we would have broken, completely. I was in middle of two films, I was promoting these two films – Andhadhun and Badhaai Ho. And we got to know about it on my birthday. In fact, we saw Manmarziyaan on September 14 and we got to know about this disease that day.”
He added, “She said that ‘I just want to celebrate my life and take it head on and we are together in this – both fighting the disease while promoting the films.’ It was a collective effort. I am glad that she has overcome and as we speak, she is delivering a lecture on how to fight cancer. She is an inspiration.”
Tahira and Ayushmann got married in 2008. The couple has two kids – Virajveer Khurrana and Varushka Khurrana.
