Author, filmmaker and cancer survivor Tahira Kashyap said that she used to feel insecure while watching make-out scenes of her husband, actor Ayushmann Khurrana, in films, but she has learnt to overcome that feeling.
Tahira opened up about various aspects of her life when she appeared in an episode of The Love, Laugh, Live Show. She confessed that she got insecure when she saw an intimate scene between Ayushmann and Yami Gautam in Vicky Donor.
"Yeah, I was insecure earlier but when I was watching the edits of Andhadhun, I told the team that something is missing in the make-out scene between Ayushmann and Radhika Apte. That moment I realised about the transformation, from being an insecure wife to analysing the make-out scenes," Tahira said.
Talking about her own identity, she said, "I know Ayushmann for 18 years and I take pride in being called as Ayushmann's wife. As far as my identity is concerned, the world has been really receptive towards the message I have of self-acceptance. People have started to accept me for who I am and my presence, opinion and existence."
She also said that Ayushmann is "an introvert and likes to keep calm around 10 people. He doesn't like to talk much as he is a good listener".
After her battle with cancer, Tahira said, " I have become a lot crazier in the 2.0 version of myself. There is a lot of self-acceptance and I feel beautiful inside out. I have become stronger."
"Cancer is something which people should accept openly and an experience like this helps you look at life through a different prism," she added.
