Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, 38, and actor Kalki Koechlin, 28, will tie the knot on April 30.
The couple, who had the scene abuzz with speculations of their marriage since a few weeks, have confirmed to the media that they are set to marry in a private ceremony in Ooty, where Koechlin grew up.
The marriage, a low-key affair with only the couple’s close friends and folks in attendance, will take place in the form of a traditional South Indian ceremony at Koechlin’s childhood home in the hill town.
Designer Laila Bijlani-Motwane, who was behind the bridal trousseau for Akshay Kumar’s wife Twinkle Khanna, will take care of Koechlin’s wardrobe while Kashyap will design his own outfit for the wedding.
Meanwhile, Koechlin has grown close to her to-be in-laws, whom she met in Benares during the shoot of Anurag’s forthcoming film, Gangs Of Wasseypur.
“His parents love me a lot and they fed me some great food. I think they adore me because I eat a lot,” she laughs.
She says she can’t wait to begin. “Since Dev D (2009), Anurag and I have understood each other very well. And quite naturally, marriage was the next step. Though we’re both always busy, we seem to have struck a good balance in our lives.” The two have been in a live-in relationship for three years.”
