Anurag Kashyap and Kalki Koechlin, who he directed in "Dev D", got married in a traditional Tamilian wedding on 30th April 2011 (Saturday) in Ooty.
Anurag Kashyap was born in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh, where his father worked for the state electricity board.
He did his early schooling in Dehradun, and age eight onwards, at the Scindia School in Gwalior.
During his college days, he started watching films again, and also got involved with drugs and alcohol.
A couple of friends introduced him to world cinema; they "urged [him] to catch a de Sica retrospective" at the International Film Festival of India.
The film festival and de Sica made a deep impact on Kashyap - he wanted to do something with films - and so he landed in Mumbai in June 1993 with INR 5,000-6,000 in his pocket.
Kashyap then wrote an "eight-page drama"—Main (I)—which did well at college drama festivals, and people advised him to pursue a career in writing.
In 1995, an acquaintance introduced Kashyap to Shivam Nair, director of the 2006 film Ahista Ahista.
Kashyap got his first major break when actor Manoj Bajpai, who was working on Daud showed Auto Narayan to producer-director Ramgopal Varma.
Satya was a commercial and critical success, and Kashyap collaborated with Varma on a few more films writing the screenplay and dialogues for Kaun? (1999) and the dialogues for Shool (1999).
