Ayushmann Khurrana, an actor who started his acting career with the boldest yet beautiful topic and then followed it up with many more. He is known for his quirky characters that he played over the years from ‘Vicky Donor’ to ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’. Now again he is coming up with two new quirky stories – ‘Andhadhun’ and ‘Badhaai Ho’, both the trailers have received highly positive reviews.
Today is Ayushmann’s birthday and on this occasion, we have something special in store for you. He is sure known as a great actor and singer but do you know he is a doting husband to Tahira Kashyap? Not just any husband but the actor’s love story with Tahira Kashyap is a fairytale.
Tahira once revealed the details of their love story in an interview. She said, “Both of us attended the same Physics tuition class when we were in the 12th standard. It was a batch of around 60 students and when I first met Ayushmann, I thought his name was Abhishek. Both me and my friend had a crush on him, but outwardly ignored him throughout the year. I later discovered that he also had a crush on me.”
Ayushmann then talked about having a mad crush on Tahira, “When I got to know that she has a crush on me, I couldn’t believe it. I never ever thought she could feel this way for me. There were so many good looking guys in the class! I was nowhere close to them. Also, I didn’t believe in looking around or indulging in mild flirtations. Class over, I would head home. So, when someone told me that Tahira had a crush on me, I was on cloud nine. The girl, who every guy had a crush on, had a crush on me! It seemed impossible but I was damn happy.”
So, they both liked each other but never confessed that to each other. This teenage untold love story would have stayed untold until an amazing twist took place. One day, Tahira’s father told her that they will be visiting his dad’s friend’s place for dinner who is an astrologer. Automatically Tahira got very excited because she was worried about her exams and then when they reached there, she found out that it is Ayushmann’s house.
Ayushmann said, “During that family dinner, we became friends. I played along that night. (Laughs) I behaved normally and didn’t let her know that I knew she had a crush on me.”
Tahira, on the other hand, want to credit their parets for making their love story happen, “I had this impression of him being a ‘cute guy’. But that night, he bowled me over with his charm, wit and of course, with the songs he sang.”
The ‘Panida’ singer explained, “We wanted to get married. That was our only plan after college. We didn’t think about our careers, but only about how and when we would get married. However, when I shared my aspirations of becoming an actor with her, she gave up all hopes of marriage. She knew that her parents wouldn’t accept ‘an actor’ or be cool with the idea of their daughter leading such a life in Mumbai.”
Next, within few years these love birds got married and Ayushmann proposed Tahira in the most charming way. Tahira spoke the proposal, “Ayushmann formally proposed to me just last year when we got married in November 2011. He did it like a gentleman with a ring, music playing in the background, red roses, wine and a romantic candlelight dinner.”
Now these two are happily married and have two children, a son named Virajveer and a daughter, Varushka.
