Kalki Koechlin is known to speak about her marriage with Anurag Kashyap, that eventually didn’t work out. Unlike other people, both Kalki and Anurag have been mature enough to handle a failed marriage with utmost grace and that’s perhaps the reason why they’re still such good friends. In an interview published in a book, Koechlin spoke about the idea of marriage and how women are always treated as the second sex after. She said, “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’. In marriage, a woman becomes the weaker sex, even if her husband doesn’t want her to be. This happens because of the way society has built the institution.”
Furthermore, the Margarita With A Straw actress also spoke about the process of coming out of her divorce. “I found myself alone after a very long time. 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,” she said.
