Anurag Kashyap: I won’t talk about personal life in public

Hrithik Roshan-Sussanne split made headlines on Friday and the Bombay Velvet director who was out to launch his latest film Hasee Toh Phasee trailer was hounded with questions of his failing marriage

Anurag Kashyap, whose marriage to actor Kalki Koechlin, too, is in trouble, sidestepped questions related to his personal life. While the filmmaker in a joint statement last month, the couple said they were separating. “Me and Kalki are separating. We are taking time off from each other to figure things out. We are not divorcing,” it said. However when Kashyap was asked by reporters at the trailer launch Hasee Toh Phasee if all was well with his marriage, the Bombay Velvet director pleaded to be left alone on this issue. “I don’t think this is the platform  to talk about it. I would not like to talk about my personal life at a public platform.”

This was apparently Kashyap’s first appearance at a film event after they separated in mid-November. Kashyap was previously married to Aarti Bajaj with whom he has a daughter, while it was Kalki’s first marriage. There were also reports that suggested that it was Kashyap’s closeness to Dedh Ishqiya actor Huma Qureshi that caused rift in his marriage.
