Losing Kalki is the biggest loss of my life, Anurag Kashyap


Anurag Kashyap and Kalki Koechlin is no longer a married couple. It’s been almost two years the couple separated but Anurag still feels Kalki’s absence in his life. Anurag who is looking forward to his next release, ‘Bombay Velvet’ sounds very disturbed when asked to comment about his estranged wife and actress Kalki Koechlin. He said separation from Kalki is the biggest loss of his life.

“Kalki is a great actress. What happened between us, why we went separate ways… all that remains between us. But she gave me six years of her life. I respect her for what she is; she really changed my life. Even if she left me, it’s because the shortcoming is in me… I am not good at relationships,” Anurag said here.

Anurag handles complex relationships on screen with perfection but when it comes to handle his personal life, he sounds failure.

“Yes, but perhaps as they say… the man who makes people laugh, is often the saddest. So, maybe it’s just a case of that…Every person has a weakness and strength… But yes, for me, there is no bigger loss that Kalki is not with me today,” he admitted candidly.

Kalki who married Anurag in April 2011 commented on Anurag’s remark. “Ha ha ... he makes it sound like I’m dead! I’m still alive and I’m very much there for him so I don’t think he has lost me at all. I’m sure, that (Anurag’s remark) was a headline that was taken out of context ... I’m sure there was a lot more to that line,” says the 31-year-old. Could he have said it because he’s been missing her? Not a chance, she says, for they talk often.

“We both very much value what we had, and yes, it does take time to get over the rawness and the hurt, but eventually you realise the value of things you had. We are not going to give in to the public pressure of this or that — we still have a very good personal relation. I still call him when I’ve had a rough day, he still calls me when he wants an opinion on something. We haven’t really lost each other. Yes, we’re not getting back together, we’re getting divorced, but you have to refrain from that tamasha that’s created around it,” she says.
