Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s daughter Aaliyah, who engaged to entrepreneur Shane Gregoire in Bali last month, shared an elaborate vlog, in which she talked about the proposal, getting engaged at the age of 22 and more. In the comments section of the video, a YouTube user claimed that Aaliyah’s fiance lives off her dad Anurag Kashyap’s money. “What does he do for a living? So basically he lives off your dad’s money. Nice,” the user commented. Replying to which Aaliyah wrote, “He has run his own company since he was 15. He’s been completely financially independent since he was 17. Neither of us take money from our parents. I don’t understand why people like you have so much hatred in your hearts.”
In the vlog, Aaliyah also answered a few questions that she received. “Are you getting hate for getting engaged at 22,” was one of the questions. Aaliyah replied, “For me, it’s my life. If I feel ready, I feel ready. We’re both ready. We’ve been talking about this for a while. We’ve already been living together for six months. We’ve been together for three years. It’s just a ‘when you know, you know’ situation. I know I’m super happy in this relationship, and he’s my soulmate.”
