We live in a society where premarital sex, one-night stands and hook-ups, pregnancy before marriage, porn, drugs and a lot more millennial issues are considered taboo. However, a few parents have been changing the notions with their style of parenting. Director and writer, Anurag Kashyap has not only created a name for himself in the film industry with some real pieces of cinema but also touched the hearts of millennials with his choices in his personal life.
Back in the early 2000s, when Anurag Kashyap was in a live-in relationship with the notable Bollywood film editor, Aarti Bajaj, he became a father to a little angel. In 2001, Anurag and Aarti embraced parenthood with the arrival of their daughter, Aaliyah Kashyap and two years later, the couple had tied the knot. But their marriage had hit the rocks and in 2009, Anurag and Aarti were granted the divorce. Despite the separation from Aarti, Anurag had never let it affect his relationship with Aaliyah.
To mark Father's Day 2021, Aaliyah Kashyap featured her father, Anurag Kashyap on her YouTube channel. In the special episode, Aaliyah confronted Anurag with some 'awkward' questions sent by their fans. From premarital sex, weed, drunk dialling, alcohol, porn, hookups, one-night stands, sleepovers with boyfriend and hanging out with male friends to her boyfriend, Shane Gregoire, Aaliyah asked Anurag's views on all such awkward topics.
When Aaliyah Kashyap asked an intriguing question about his reaction if she told him that she's pregnant, Anurag Kashyap answered, "I will ask you, 'Are you sure you want this?' And whatever you choose to do, I will always go with it, you know that. I will accept it. Whatever choices you make, I will accept it. I would absolutely tell you that there is a price to pay for it but at the end of it, I will still be there."
Aaliyah Kashyap is in a relationship with Shane Gregoire, whom she had met on a dating app. When she asked her dad, Anurag Kashyap about his views on Shane, he said, "I like Shane. I like your choice in friends and your choice in boys. Shane is very good. He is very spiritual, very calm, he has a lot of qualities that men of 40 don't have, in terms of being there in difficult situations."
Aaliyah Kashyap and Shane Gregoire had completed one year of their relationship on June 15, 2021, and to mark the same, she had posted a video montage of their special moments together. Aaliyah had written, "The best 365 days with my best friend that I wouldn't change for the world. Thank you for loving me unconditionally & showing me a love like no other. I love you forever #1year."
When Anurag Kashyap had turned 48 on September 10, 2020, his daughter, Aaliyah Kashyap had posted IG stories to wish him on his birthday. Aaliyah had posted a screenshot of her video call with Anurag on his birthday with the caption, "Happy birthday papa. Love you and miss you so much." Sharing a childhood picture as her next IG story, Aaliyah had written, "See you soon hoepfully@anuragkashyap10" atop it.
