Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife Tahira Kashyap all set to direct her first feature film
Last year actor-singer Ayushmann Khurrana‘s wife Tahira Kashyap made her filmmaking debut with a short film titled ‘Toffee‘, and the latest reports suggest that Tahira is now all set to make her first feature film.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Tahira will be making a slice-of-life drama which will be produced by Bhushan Kumar, Tanuj Garg and Atul Kasbekar. Talking about being able to fulfil her long-cherished dream of directing a film, Tahira told the tabloid, “I am delighted to be working with such incredible partners to bring a take on urban existence to the big screen. It feels surreal that something I had dreamt of for the longest time, is finally happening!”
The shooting of Tahira’s yet-to-be-titled film will begin next year. Sharing about the nervousness she is feeling right now, Tahira further added, “Every character in my film is a part of me. And of course, there are butterflies everywhere, from the gut to the arteries and the veins.”
Like her multi-talented husband Ayushmann, Tahira too is very creative. Theatre writer-director, Tahira has also been the programming head of a radio station in the North and has previously made a short film. She is an author as well as a teacher of mass communication and journalism.
When quizzed if she would like to cast her hubby Ayushmann in her film, Tahira replied, “I would love to. I respect Ayushmann more as an artist. As a husband, he could do better!”
Sharing the news with his fans and followers, Ayushmann took to Instagram and wrote, “From writing books, plays and directing theatre productions to making a feature film now. So proud of you @tahirakashyap. The first step towards your dream. You have written a wonderful script and you are backed by the most credible people. @ellipsisentertainment@tseries @atulkasbekar @tanuj.garg”
