Kalki Koechlin: We are getting married
Actress Kalki Koechlin will tie the knot with longtime filmmaker boyfriend Anurag Kashyap on Saturday in Ooty.
"Yes, we are getting married," said Koechlin, who made her Bollywood debut with Kashyap's Dev D (2009).
"They have invited just 40 of their close friends for their marriage. They will throw a big party once they return to Mumbai where the whole Bollywood will be invited," said a source close to the couple.
What took them so long to decide to get married?
"We are engaged since January this year. When you marry a star, it's really tough to find dates for marriage," Koechlin said, laughing.
The actress, of French descent, will be seen in Bejoy Nambiar's directorial debut Shaitan, which is produced by Kashyap.
Also, her much-talked about film, The Girl in Yellow Boots, which she has co-written with Kashyap, is also set to release this year.
