One of Bollywood’s eminent director-producer Anurag Kashyap turns a year older today.
Birthdays are all about making your loved ones feel special.

Aaliyah shared some of the fondest moments with her Dad in the collage. The pictures were mostly from her childhood days. On several occasions, the young starlet has also opened up about her bond with him. Earlier the actress shared that her relationship with her parents is more like best friends than a ‘strict parent-child relationship’. “I am very open with my parents. My parents are like my best friends. My parents, when I was growing up, always wanted to have a relationship where it was more like friendship rather than this strict parent-child relationship because that way, I wouldn’t be sneaking around doing stuff.”
Aaliyah had also revealed that while her mom knew every detail about her dating life, she shared with her father only when things were serious. “Even when it comes to relationships, I am very open. Every time I was talking to a guy or dating a guy or anything, I would tell my mom about it. My dad, I would only tell when it was going to actually turn into something serious. Like, the actual dating and not just talking,” she said.
Meanwhile, Aaliyah has emerged as a youth icon and enjoys a massive fan following on social media. She had earlier made headlines, when she opened up on receiving hate comments for a recent post. Taking to Instagram the star kid wrote, The past few weeks have been really hard on my mental health. Ever since I posted a photo of me in lingerie, I have been getting the most vile, degrading and disgusting comments. I have never felt more frightened than I have in the past few weeks to the point where I considered deleting my instagram”.
