Tahira Kashyap is a writer, an author, a director, a professor and is married to Ayushmann Khurrana. She is one of the few people to shackle the myth around being the quintessential 'star wife' and is known more for her individuality than other things. The actress has been hitting headlines ever since she shared her ordeal of battling with breast cancer and in our new show 'No Labels Attached', we intended to highlight those aspects of her, which makes her THE Tahira Kashyap. 

Apart from opening up on her childhood days, Tahira elaborated on the factors that influenced her to take up direction and writing. She also spoke about her ways of dealing with anxiety and insecurities during the initial stages of her married life and won our hearts with her unfiltered answers. She also shared how she dealt with her son who felt a bit embarrassed seeing her go bald for the treatment. Opening up, she said, "On emotional note, you never know how you are going to react until the situations comes. So, when I started going for my chemo, I knew I will lose my hair and I had kept one wig ready, lots of scarfs ready, of different colors. I had kept everything ready because I wasn't ready to go bald."

"I had never imagined myself bald, not even short hair. I came from the school of thought where beauty meant long hair but that was old me. But there was one day when the extensions couldn't hold on to the humble strands of hair I had on my head. So one day I had to decide to shave it off. When my son saw, he was like, 'I have seen men go bald, why did it have to happen to my mother? He told me not to meet his friends but I did exactly that, I met them and after spending 15-20 minutes, they knew all is normal. That day I redefined beauty for them."
