Kalki Koechlin and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who got married in 2011, went through a divorce in 2015 after being separated for two years. However, the two maintained a cordial relation between them.
Anurag Kashyap and Kalki Koechlin even shared a warm hug as the filmmaker welcomed the actress at the screening of Manmariziyan. In an interview published in a recently launched book, Feminist Rani, penned by Shaili Chopra and Meghna Pant, Kalki said the "biggest problem" with marriage, especially for a woman, is the idea of "ownership".
"Once I got married, I was only invited to the things that Anurag was invited to. People would say, 'Call Anurag's wife'. They wouldn't say, 'call Kalki' or 'call Kalki's husband'. "In marriage, a woman becomes the weaker sex, even if her husband doesn't want her to be. This happens because of the way society has built the institution," Kalki said.
Kalki Koechlin sported a lovely monochrome saree, but her new hairstyle stood out the most. Well, Anurag was at his usual best, opting a black tee and blue denims.
Anurag Kashyap's daughter Aalyah also attended the screening of Manmarziyaan with her friend Chaitra Gangwani.
Huma Qureshi, Anurag Kashyap's Gangs Of Wasseypur actress, also attended the screening of Manmarziyaan.
