In response to this gesture, Tahira shared a fun post on her Instagram account and quipped that Ayushmann inspires her as an actor, but as a husband can still do better.
However, Tahira even said that Ayushmann, like every doting family man, is there for her and their kids Virajveer Khurrana and Varushka Khurrana, whenever they need him yet, puts in 100% dedication towards his profession and craft.

Proudest moment for me. This black lady doesnt come easy! Hence I forgive you for not helping me decide the theme party for our kids, for forgetting to pick me up from where you dropped me earlier, for going to a wrong class for a parent teacher meeting, and zillion other things! But I applaud you for always being there for us when needed the most and yet give 100 % to your profession and craft. @ayushmannk You inspire me as an artist. As a husband you can still do better! I think I should start holding my own My fair lady awards at home annually to up your game! #bestactorcritics #filmfareawards #proudwife #gratitude
Ayushmann, like a doting and immensely lovable husband, promptly responded to Tahira's message for him. He mentioned that Tahira is his biggest source of strength and her happiness and wellbeing is his aspiration.
