Ayushmann Khurrana‘s wife Tahira Kashyap has forayed into direction with a short film TOFFEE which will be screened at MAMI film festival tomorrow.


The film talks about child marriage, as in India highest number of girls below the age of 18 are married and a mother too and its time people in rural areas understand the importance of health and education of girls.

Tahira who is personally very moved by this speak about why she chose this subject to begin her direction.  “I have heard and seen so many cases it has moved me, I'm just foraying into this arena so I decided to go with a short film so that the movie reaches masses and at the right place. Ayushmann is the producer of the film and he has also sang a song in the film which a very beautiful song.” says Tahira talking about the film.

When asked her if she plans to enter into mainstream cinema she said, she hasn't decided anything about that yet.

Lastly when asked if she would want to direct her husband Ayushmann she avers, “I don't know, he is doing very good in his career and I am quite happy for him, he has really worked hard to reach where he is now.”

Here's wishing Tahira all the very best for her directorial debut.
