Former spouses Anurag Kashyap and Kalki Koechlin are a true example of how to carry personal and professional lives gracefully even after a divorce.
So recently, when Kalki announced her first pregnancy with boyfriend Guy Hershberg, Kashyap extended a supportive hand.
Notably, Kalki is five months into pregnancy and has decided to opt for a water birth.
Here's what the filmmaker said.
He has just welcomed me to the parents' club: Kalki
According to Kalki, "He (Anurag) has 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."
"Marriage can be useful for bureaucracy; not sign of love"
Reacting to how people have been talking about her giving birth prior to getting married, Kalki said, "What is this term 'out of wedlock'? It belongs in a Shakespearean drama and not in a millennial world."
"Marriage can be useful for bureaucracy, but it is not a sign of love. Only time and consistency tell of a strong relationship," she further added.
And, what about marriage plans?
Sharing plans of marriage, Kalki said, "We have considered it for purpose of parental rights and the nationality issue, but we don't want to rush it because of societal pressures. We will see when the time feels right. It will be a quiet family gathering."
Hershberg is an Israeli classical pianist from Jerusalem
Coming to Kalki's relationship, she recently announced that she has been dating Hershberg, an Israeli classical pianist form Jerusalem.
Earlier, the rumors of the duo dating each other were doing rounds after Kalki posted several photos of her with Hershberg on her Instagram.
On one particular picture, Kalki put up the caption, "It's always a Sunday when I am with my favorite caveman."
Earlier, Kalki was married to Kashyap; later divorced
To recall, Kalki was previously married to Kashyap. The two met on the sets of Dev D (2009).
After dating for two years, they tied the knot in 2011, before calling it quits in 2013 and finally divorcing in 2015.
However, even after parting ways, the ex-couple still share a good friendship, and recently collaborated for Netflix's Sacred Games 2.
Professionally, Kalki was last seen in 'Sacred Games 2'
On the work front, Kalki was last seen in Netflix's popular drama series Sacred Games 2. She portrayed the role of Batya Abelman. Separately, her latest silver screen outing was Gully Boy, which has now been selected as India's official entry for Oscars 2020.
