Tahira Kashyap’s note on body positivity and self-love will inspire many
Tahira Kashyap is not only wife of actor-singer Ayushmann Khurrana, but she has been also known for her individuality. She has penned a note on self-love, drawing a comparison of her ‘strong’ body with that of Kendall Jenner. Kendall’s pictures have been going viral after she did a photoshoot for her sister famous Kim Kardashian’s brand of lingerie.
Tahira who is a writer and director too posted a black and white picture of her hiding her face and wrote, “Kendall and her tiny thong pictures are all over the internet and like many women I too wondered how is it freaking possible to look like that! The belly button is just a seductive slit or more like a kala tikka we put on kids and I don’t know how that tiny portion of cloth could hide her essentials esp down below.”
She then went on to compare herself with Kendall and wrote, “And so it was time to reflect (quite literally) and assess, more so judge, my reality. Hmmm what do i think about what I saw? Well I saw this 69kg (every kilo matters) woman ( out of which 4 Kendall’s can be taken out) with strong limbs and bruises that she got yest by actually saving her puppy, her daughter and didi by jumping in the lift as the sensors weren’t working and it was closing its doors on the 3 of them who were waiting for my son to join. I stood there like rock of Gibraltar ( or atleast in my head) squeezing the door ajar with all the strength I had and had the 3 of them get out of the sense less and sensor less elevator’s way while quickly pulling myself in the lift with them. I felt quite heroic and grateful to this weight that I am trying to beat off , for had it not been for that, someone would have def gotten hurt! Grateful to you a** for quite literally saving all our a*es!” Tahira concluded with, “Moral of the story don’t wait for dysfunctional closed doors to open the way to love yourself a wee bit more #selflove #wearyoursexualitywithpride #appreciationpostforself.”
