Popular filmmaker, Anurag Kashyap was born on September 10, 1972, in Gorakhpur city of Uttar Pradesh. Never-ever in their wildest dreams, his family members dreamt that one day this little boy from Gorakhpur would change the dynamics around cinema in India. Despite being a student of Zoology at Delhi University's Hansraj College, it was during a film festival when he watched famous director, Vittorio De Sirca's iconic 1984 Italian film, Bicycle Thieves, that made him fall in love with cinema and storytelling.
After which, Anurag Kashyap decided to become a filmmaker and arrived in the city of dreams, Bombay, with Rs. 5000 in his pocket and the rest, as they say, is history. From delivering movies like Black Friday, Gangs of Wasseypur, No Smoking, Dev.D, Gulaal, That Girl in Yellow Boots, Mukkabaaz, Manmarziyaan, and the web series, Sacred Games, Anurag has become one of the most influential directors in the film industry at the moment.
On August 16, 2022, Anurag Kashyap took to his Instagram handle and shared a picture with his ex-wives, Aarti Bajaj and Kalki Koechlin. The picture is doing rounds all over the internet, and the filmmaker is receiving a lot of love for having such a concrete bond with both of his ex-wives. In the picture, Anurag can be seen standing in the middle with a wide smile, as he looked cute in a blue-coloured hoodie. On the left side, Aarti can be seen posing to the camera in a purple-coloured kurta, while on the right, Kalki looked gorgeous as ever in a leather jacket and blue denim.
Along with this picture, Anurag Kashyap penned a caption, and it can be read as "My Two Pillar." As soon as the picture went live on social media, a series of people started making fun of Anurag for getting divorced twice. While some pointed fingers at his views about women, some dropped hateful comments in the comment section of his post. Apart from all the negativity, it was Anurag's daughter, Aaliyah Kashyap, from his first wife, Aarti, who reacted to it quite maturely, and her comment can be read as:
For the unversed, Anurag Kashyap has failed twice in marriage. Talking about the filmmaker's first marriage, Anurag had got married to the renowned film editor, Aarti Bajaj back in 2003. After some years of their marriage, the then-couple had welcomed a baby girl in their lives, whom they had named Aaliyah. However, sadly in 2009, they had parted ways over some irreconcilable issues. After which, Anurag had tied the marital knot for the second time with actress, Kalki Koechlin in 2011, but once again, just after four years into their married life, the couple called it off in 2015.
As of now, Anurag Kashyap is currently in a relationship with Shubhra Shetty. The lovebirds had started dating in the year 2015 but had made their relationship public in the year 2018. In an interview with Filmfare, the Raman Raghav director had confirmed his dating reports with Shubhra and had said:
"I'm in a relationship after a long time. I don't believe it is anybody's business to know, everyone needs to be in love at some stage or the other. I love the emotion of love. Even at 90, I'll be in love."
We are in love with how Anurag has maintained his bond with his ex-wives, Aarti Bajaj and Kalki Koechlin. What do you think? Let us know.
