According to her interview with Mid-Day Tahira opened up about how caner has bought her the realization of the importance of good mental health. She said she never treated her body, mind, and soul as one entity. She always thought physical health was important, and “mental toh kuch hota hi nahin hai.” So, she exercised a lot. “But I think [cancer] was a manifestation of the negativity that I had been harbouring,” she said.

She said that she was in depression and would cry herself to sleep while Ayushmann was out shooting for his films. She said, “Had I gone to a doctor, I would have been declared clinically depressed. But I chose to cry every night instead of visiting one. I was living a dual life. My husband was shooting; I would spend hours at night crying, and put up the front of a happy person in the morning so that I didn’t look like a loser before my children, who were aged two and four then.
