Two people belonged to the same city, saw each other for the first time when they were teenagers, and were attracted to each other instantly! But, they could not find the courage to confess their feelings to each other for a very long time. And when they did, they made a truly romantic and beautiful love story. Well, we are talking about Bollywood’s heartthrob, Ayushmann Khurrana, and his wife, Tahira Kashyap. They have known each other for twelve years now, and with every passing day, their love simply gets stronger than ever! Stardom or busy schedule, nothing can come between them. Proud parents of two kids, Ayushmann and Tahira are a happily married couple. And, we thought of bringing to you, their beautiful journey from becoming friends to soulmates. So, read their love story in their own words.
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."
Then happened the filmy twist in the story, Tahira's father told her that they will be having dinner with one of his old friends who is an astrologer. Tahira got very excited when she got to know about the occupation of this certain friend of her dad's, and decided to ask him about how would she fare in the competitive entrance exams she was preparing for. On reaching there, she found out that it was Ayushmann's residence. They both were, so far, oblivious of the fact that their parents were friends. And this time, they did not let the moment pass, and finally talked to each other.
They became good friends after they completed high school and began dating. They both pursued master's degree in Mass Communication at Punjab University (PU), but from different colleges. Their partnership was more about a competition where they would fight against each other in debate and dramatics competition. They both were interested in theatre and later joined the same theatre group.
Wedding Bells would happen soon after. Tahira 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 a life in the movie industry."
But, their love was strong enough to overcome all the problems, and Ayushmann proposed to Tahira in the most subtle yet charming way.
