During his initial days in Mumbai, Anurag had met the notable film editor, Aarti Bajaj and had fallen madly-in-love with her. Anurag and Aarti were in a live-in relationship for some time and had embraced parenthood in 2001 with a daughter, Aaliyah Kashyap. Anurag and Aarti had tied the knot in 2003, but after four years of marital bliss, their relationship had fallen apart. They had separated in 2007 and were granted divorce in 2009.

Thank you for adding even more color to my life and being as weird as I am. Love you big girl… you are a very special person and I can’t wait to see what you do next. #cakemurder.”
As Anurag had turned 48 on September 10, 2020, his daughter had posted IG stories to wish him on his birthday.

With the ongoing debate or rather war, in Bollywood on nepotism, Anurag Kashyap had voiced his opinion on the same when he was asked in an interview with NDTV about his reaction if his daughter, Aaliyah Kashyap expresses her wish to join the industry. Anurag had said, “She’s an adult, she has to choose, but definitely she has to learn. She can’t wake up one day and say ‘I want to be an actor’. If she wants to do it, she has to struggle for it and go and audition for it and win a role somewhere. I don’t think I write movies which are so urban where she will fit in. She’s an urban kid, she’s not a street kid like me.” (Also Read: Smriti Khanna's Daughter, Anayka Reacts Like This When She Is Angry With Her 'Mumma' [Video])
