'Bald is beautiful': Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife shares empowering post cancer pic
MUMBAI - Indian actor Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife and filmmaker Tahira Kashyap has shared new pictures on social media that show her with her head shaved after her diagnosis of breast cancer.

Tahira wrote in her post that she took the step after hair extensions got too irritating for her to manage. “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!

She also added, "I never thought I would go bald, was stretching my time with the good old’ cap for too long. But this feels so good #breastcancerawareness #baldisbeautiful #selflovenomatterwhat,” she captioned the pictures. In the photos, she is seen striking a stylish pose in a blue T-shirt and big sunglasses.

Hubby Ayushmann and social media users reacted to Tahira's liberated photo in their heartfelt posts:

Twitterati also sent wishes for speedy recovery of Tahira:

On September 22, 2018,  Tahira shared online 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.

Earlier sharing the talk with Indian publication 'Hindustan Times' Ayushmann, who has two children with Tahira; Virajveer and Varushka, said: “I am glad I have a partner like Tahira who is very brave, strong, who is an inspiration. I have started seeing life through a different prism. I was giving her my time, of course. In the morning I was promoting my films, in the nights I was with her in the hospital... It is not easy.”

Here's wishing a speedy recovery to the brave Tahira!
