The filmmaker met up with his cousin Kshitij while in the city recently. “I am meeting my cousin after five years. We are constantly in touch and it was only a few days back when Arijit called and asked when I was planning to come to Lucknow, and here I am,” said Abhinav, adding, “He was insisting we lunch together, but maine bola lunch ka toh pata nahi bus mil lunga tujhse. Even though we are meeting after a long time, nothing has changed between us” he said.
When asked about his real brother Anurag Kashyap, Abhinav says, “Hum log ek hi shehr mein rehte hain, humare ghar 3.5 kilometre door hain, par hum six months mein ek baar milte hai, do baar baat ho jati hai phone pe. Par jab milte hain tab waise hi milte hai jaise bachpan mein milte thay. He has started keeping shows of Hollywood movies at his place, so whenever he does that and calls me, I go” he said.
