Aaliyah Kashyap, the daughter of filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, has shared a short video of her father on her Instagram stories. This is days after the director of Gangs of Wasseypur underwent angioplasty after complaining of chest pain.
In the video, the acclaimed filmmaker looks bald and has bushy eyebrows. This is definitely a new director avatar, probably created through one of Snapchat’s filters.

Earlier, Kashyap’s spokesperson had confirmed the news about Anurag’s health to indianexpress.com. “Yes, he has had an angioplasty. He is now recovering. Thank you for your concern,” they said.
A source close to the filmmaker says Anurag decided to seek medical attention after experiencing mild chest pain. Kashyap has been advised to rest for at least a few weeks before returning to work. Kashyap was last seen sharing screen space with Anil Kapoor in Vikramaditya Motwane’s AK vs AK, which was released on Netflix in 2020. Kashyap also executive produced the film, in addition to writing the dialogue.
He finished shooting Dobaaraa with Taapsee Pannu in March. He has worked on the post-production of the film from his home in Mumbai. Dobaaraa marks the second collaboration between Anurag and Taapsee. The two previously worked together in Manmarziyaan (2018).
