Aaliyah Kashyap Anurag Kashyap video: Social media influencer Kashyap recently revealed that she received too much hate for discussing sex and premarital pregnancy with her father, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap. In one of her YouTube videos, Kashyap is seen asking “awkward questions” to him. This made her the subject to “full-on hate” from the viewers.
In a recent interview, Kashyap said that she received immense hate for discussing topics of taboo with her father, Anurag Kashyap. These topics included sex, premarital pregnancy, drugs etc. In an YouTube video, she is seen asking her father his opinion on “one-night stand and hook ups”. She also asks him if he thinks that “weed is acceptable” and how would he react if she told him that she was pregnant.
Kashyap then went on to say that her father received positive responses for being a progressive parent. But at the same time, many posted hate comments and said that she was asking “inappropriate” questions to him. “I have gotten a lot of messages of people talking about how it’s good to see such a progressive parent,” she said. She added that people have questions but they are scared of asking their parents. So it’s good for them to get a medium to have all their questions answered.
But on the other side, there were people who are more sheltered and reserved. They are not very comfortable with such topics and told her that she should be “ashamed of herself”. “I don’t even know what people have come on my channel…Full-on hate,” the influencer said. She continued, “They were just like, ‘ How can you talk to your parents about this? You should be ashamed of yourself.”
We are with Kashyap. Indian parents and their children’s relationships have for too long been complex and headlined by an uneasy silence over practical issues like sex and behaviour. Isn’t it time to change that?
Last month the influencer revealed that someone had created a fake profile of her on a dating app. Taking to her Instagram stories, she requested all her followers to block and report it. Click here for more.
