Ayushmann Khurrana married Tahira Kashyap in 2008 after several years of dating. The duo had a love life similar to a Bollywood movie where two teenagers meet, fall in love, and go on to live happily ever after. However, there were indeed some rough patches after Ayushmann started to see a little stardom.

In 2004, Khurrana shot to overnight fame after winning the second season of the popular reality show MTV Roadies. It was then that the Badhaai Ho actor decided to break up with Tahira.

Why did Ayushmann Khurrana break up with Tahira Kashyap after winning Roadies?

Recently, during a segment on Mashable Mehfil, Ayushmann Khurrana revealed, "It is very difficult to deal with fame when you are 16, 17, and in your teens. I remember I broke up with my then-girlfriend because I was getting attention from other girls. I went through that phase when you're just getting a taste of fame and popularity.”


Ayushmann who became the most popular guy in Chandigarh and started getting reputed work shared how he reasoned his desire to "live his life" behind the breakup. He shared, “I was the most popular guy in Chandigarh at that time and I broke with Tahira saying that 'I want to live my life' but after 6 months I went back to her and told her 'I can't do this anymore, fuck boy nahi ban sakta mein.'”
