If Ayushmann Khurrana is a go-getter in life, his super talented and fighter wife Tahira Kashyap is a step ahead. The lady might be battling cancer, however, she has not let the deadly disease deter her hunger for life.

Tahira, who has been writing screenplays for the last five years, is finally coming up with her directorial project. The film is still untitled and is a slice-of-life project. According to speculations, the leading lady has been finalized. And it is none other than ravishing Madhuri Dixit Nene.

Madhuri was last seen in Marathi film Bucket List which also marked her foray into regional cinema. As per a leading daily, Tahira is in a happy phase. Tahira shared, “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, is finally happening. I’ve been writing screenplays for five years. It wasn’t an easy ride for me. I’m glad that Ellipsis believed in me, and together with T-Series, has given me a platform to breathe life into my script. I am truly excited about this new phase in my life and career."

Not much is known about the project as of now, however, if it is anything like the kind of movies Ayushmann does, and if Madhuri is essaying the role, she might be in for some good news already because audience is all for slice-of-life women-centric cinema right now.
