We were introduced to the gorgeous Kalki Koechlin in 2009 when Anurag Kashyap directed her in Dev D. We watched her again in Shaitan which was produced under Anurag Kashyap’s banner. And we’ll soon see her in The Girl in Yellow Boots again directed by Anurag.
Although their association has always worked, Anurag doesn’t want to do any more intense movies with his wife. “Yes I am very serious about it. I won’t work with Kalki again till the time I have a lighter romantic film for her. When we work on intense films, our relationship gets very intense. It takes a toll on our personal interactions.” Besides this, he also added that the chances of creative clashes are high while working on the same project, and convincing the other becomes difficult at times.
Since their relationship is more important than anything else, they’ve decided to keep it safe by avoiding working together. Anurag also clarified that he doesn’t add a special character in the script only to include his wife in the project. In fact, he includes Kalki only if the script has a character that suits her. To support this claim, his next film Gangs of Wasseypur is an example. It does not feature his wife as the script did not require any character that suited Kalki.
As of now, we have our eyes set on The Girl In Yellow Boots. Maybe the film that has won hearts internationally will score with our audience too?
