Kalki on equation with Anurag
“I'm very much at ease now (with Anurag). We've been through so much together, and so much apart. We've reached a place of peace between us. He wasn't involved in this film (Goldfish) till it was screened at Busan (International Film Festival). He saw the film in Busan, loved it, and was really supportive about it. And we're really glad to have him on board. So yeah, we're good now,” Kalki said in the interview.
On attending Aaliyah's engagement
Kalki was recently spotted with her daughter at the engagement ceremony of Aaliyah Kashyap, Anurag's daughter. “Aaliyah is very cute with my daughter. They really have kind of a playful thing. So basically, my daughter thinks Aaliyah is a real princess. So she's in awe of her. It's good to have one more babysitter around,” Kalki said in the same interview.
