Bombay Velvet director Anurag Kashyap and Margarita With A Straw actress Kalki Koechlin are now officially divorced. The couple were spotted arriving together in a car at the Bandra family court in Mumbai and also left together. But the two are no longer husband and wife after their divorce by mutual consent came through yesterday.
The couple fell in love after on the sets on Dev D in 2008. The film was a modern take on Devdas where Kalki played Chandramukhi also known as Chanda. The couple tied the knot in 2011 after living together for 2 years in a private affair with Anurag’s 15-year-old daughter Aaliya in attendance along with other filmmaker friends like Vikramaditya Motwane and Vikas Bahl.
The differences started cropping up after the couple settled down to domesticity. A source, who is apparently a friend of the director, quoted in the report, “He isn't made for marriage. The divorce is painful to both but they've made a pact to be there for each other. In a way, it's the sweetest divorce you'll ever know.”
