Relieved I can let that bump hang free after months of stuffing it into costumes which fit me at the beginning of shoot schedules in July but were not so easy to zip up by mid September! And kudos to my style saviours @who_wore_what_when for coming up with innovative ways to cover it up!

Kalki recently announced her first pregnancy with partner Guy Hershberg. And Anurag being a good friend to her, lent the actress his support. In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, the mother-to-be revealed that Anurag offered help and guidance whenever and wherever she needed it. She said, “He’s 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.”
Speaking at another event, Kalki spoke about her marriage to Anurag. She had said, “The biggest problem with marriage, especially for a woman, is the idea of ownership. Once I got married, I was only invited to the things that Anurag was invited to. People would say, ‘Call Anurag’s wife’. They wouldn’t say, ‘Call Kalki’ or ‘Call Kalki’s husband.’” She added that it was only after the divorce that she found herself. “I had to fill up that empty space somehow. I didn’t want to fill it up by going crazy and getting drunk, or by surrounding myself with the people. I chose the introverted version of filling up myself by spending more time at home, with the family. I’m happy I went through that journey.”
