By First Look Kolkata of July 26, 2021
Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s daughter Aaliyah, in a recent interview, revealed that she received “full-on hate” from social media users for discussing sex and premarital pregnancy, that are still considered majorly taboo topics, with her father in one of her YouTube videos. Aaliyah, who is Anurag Kashyap’s daughter with his ex-wife Aarti Bajaj, recently made an appearance on Zoom TV’s talk show By Invite Only and opened up about how users on YouTube reacted to her video, in which she can be seen asking “awkward questions” (her words) on sex, drugs and pregnancy to Anurag Kashyap like his opinion on “one night stand and hook-ups,” if he thinks “weed is acceptable” and what would be his reaction if she told him that “she was pregnant.”
In the interview with Zoom TV, Aaliyah said that while she got positive reactions to Anurag Kashyap being “a progressive parent,” many posted “hate” comments on her video for asking ‘inappropriate’ questions to her father. “I have gotten a lot of messages of people talking about how it’s good to see such a progressive parent. People have questions and they are too afraid to ask their parents and so it’s nice for them to have a medium to get answers to their questions. But there’s also the other side – people that are a little more sheltered or reserved that aren’t very comfortable with it,” she said.
Aaliyah added that people said she “should be ashamed of herself” for discussing sex and pregnancy with her father: “You should have seen the comments on the video I made with my dad. There’s like these… I don’t even know what people have come on my channel… Full-on hate. Because sex and pregnancy and drugs and blah blah blah. They were just like, ‘How can you talk to your parents about this? You should be ashamed of yourself’.”
