ZeeZest.com, India's favourite multiformat lifestyle portal, has roped in author-filmmaker Tahira Kashyap Khurrana as the Digital Cover Star for the month of March 2023. Known for her nuanced writing and empowering women-centric stories peppered with humour, the critically acclaimed director marked her debut in 2017 with the short film Toffee followed by Pinni, part of Netflix's anthology series Zindagi in Short in 2020, and Quaranteen Crush, part of the anthology series Feels Like Ishq released in 2021.
And there's no stopping her as 2023 is packed with riveting projects ahead of her. Not only is her first feature film Sharmaji Ki Beti, a female-centric comedy-drama, slated for release this year, but she's also paired up again with Oscar-winning producer Guneet Monga for an upcoming dramedy feature.
As the March 2023 Digital Cover Star, shot by photographer Kunal Gupta, Tahira, one of the most promising female directors in the industry, spoke about how she didn't indulge in self-love for the longest time only to realise self-love is truly constructive. She also gave an honest take on star wives, how the advent of OTT has led to diverse content and talent and how humour is her coping mechanism.
