Anurag Kashyap reacts to ex- wife Kalki Koechlin’s pregnancy


Kalki Koechlin is pregnant with her first child with boyfriend Guy Hershberg and she flaunted baby bump at an event. Now, in a recent interview, the actress spoke about her ex-husband Anurag Kashyap's reaction when he heard the news.

Kalki said, "He’s just welcomed me to the parents’ club and told me to call if I need anything. Seeing Aaliyah (Anurag’s daughter) growing up and my own brother Oriel too, I’ve already got a glimpse into this role of a lifetime."

The 5-month pregnant Kalki shared a baby bump photo with the caption, “Relieved I can let that bump hang free after months of stuffing it into costumes which fit me at the beginning of shoot schedules in July but were not so easy to zip up by mid September! And kudos to my style saviours @who_wore_what_when for coming up with innovative ways to cover it up!”

Talking about her partner Guy, the actor said, “It’s a process of gradual trust. Ironically, the distance helped us communicate a lot more since we don’t have the luxury of seeing each other every day. He has spent his life teaching children piano so, he’s going to be the disciplinarian -- the more experienced parent I feel.”

Kalki opened up about marrying Guy Hershberg, “We have considered it for the purpose of parental rights and nationality issue. But I don’t want to rush it because of societal pressures. We will see when the time feels right. It will be a registration and a quiet family gathering.”

Earlier, talking to Brunch, Kalki said that she wants to be an engaged parent. “My concern is to connect with my child, not to have a particular rule, or expectation.” She also said she has a name in mind. “I’ve chosen a name that works for either gender and that is representative of a gay person, because I want my child to have that freedom of movement under the many umbrellas of gender that we have,” she said.

In an interview with a leading magazine, Kalki went on to speak about the kind of parent she wants to be. She revealed, "I know I want to be an engaged parent. My concern is to connect with my child, not to have a particular rule, or expectation." But that's not all. She also went on to reveal that she and her beau have already found a name for their baby that won't be gender specific. She added, "I've chosen a name that works for either gender and that is representative of a gay person, because I want my child to have that freedom of movement under the many umbrellas of gender that we have."

Kalki Koechlin's is due in December or early January.
