Anurag and Kalki get candid in an interview

They are the ‘black swans’ of Bollywood, currently only in the mood for love and of course, cinema. None othercthan Anurag Kashyap and Kalki koechlin.

They said, Anurag Kashyap and Kalki Koechlin are hardly alike. In a candid chat with them,just days before they take off to Turkey for their honeymoon, they reveal what makes them tick and what ticks them off.. Following are the intercepts from the interview-

What were your very first impressions of each other?
Anurag Kashyap: I did not like her when I first met her. I was forced to watch her audition for Dev D. She was a really white, firang looking girl who had these strange posy pictures on her portfolio and I was like, ‘I’m not taking her in my film’. But when I saw the audition, I immediately called to ask her when we could meet.

So it was definitely not love at first sight?
Kalki Koechlin: Of course not! I did not even know who he was. I remember picking up the DVD of Black Friday after my audition to find out what the big deal was about this guy.

Who made the first move then?
KK: Well, you pursued me for quite some time…
AK: Yes, for two whole weeks. I asked her for dinner every single day! (Laughs)
KK: Well, I was skeptical. He was much older, was divorced and also a dad! And I did not want people to think I ‘landed’ the director in my very first film!

But marriage was never on the cards, right? You were living in?
KK: I told him if you ever want to get married, it would be in the confines of this little house. And that’s almost how it was. We had just 20 close people at the wedding.
