Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s films might cater to bold and hard-hitting subjects, but the man has a rather soft side to him. From being a fun-loving crew member to a loving father, there’s a different aspect to Kashyap’s personality than what his kind of cinema depicts.
Aaliyah Kashyap is the daughter of Anurag Kashyap and his former wife and film editor Arti Bajaj. Aaliyah, who lives in the US is a lifestyle blogger and owns a popular YouTube channel. In fact it is her social media handles where she regularly shares videos and photos with father Anurag Kashyap.
Ahead of Anurag Kashyap’s 49th birthday on Friday, we take a trip through the adorable posts shared by both father-daughter on social media that prove whenever they are spending time, it is all about pulling each other’s leg and putting out candid uploads. We know only Aaliyah can make Anurag Kashyap dance to her tunes!
