Aaliyah shared how the two ‘formed a bond over trauma’ as they recounted their ‘abduction story’ from their younger years. Ida described the incident as ‘distressing’.

‘We were taken captive’

Reflecting on the event that transpired when the two resided in the same complex years ago, Aaliyah said, “That was insane… one of the episodes we bonded over trauma was being abducted. Not exactly abducted because we were at home, but it was a burglary… it was definitely distressing.” To this, Ida added, “I don’t know what could have occurred…. we were taken captive.”

‘We thought we were going to perish’

Aaliyah and Ida disclosed that their parents were out together when the two were at Aaliyah‘s residence; her grandmother was supervising them along with their ‘housemaid’, who was employed in Aaliyah‘s household at that time. She recounted, “The maid confined my grandmother in a room after my parents left… she covered Ida‘s and my mouth with tape and tied our hands to chairs. We were sobbing and shouting because we believed we were going to perish. Basically, she was pilfering from the house. She took jewelry and money or whatever was in the house.”

‘It was evidently distressing’

Aaliyah added, “Fortunately, my mom (Aarti Bajaj) had forgotten something, and she returned like 15–20 minutes later to retrieve it, and she witnessed everything that had transpired. She contacted her (Ida‘s) parents, my dad, and everyone came back, and they were all frantic. It was evidently distressing, but it would have been far more so if we had endured it alone… now we find humor in it.”

Aaliyah is the daughter of filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and his first spouse, film editor Aarti Bajaj. She is a YouTuber and frequently shares her opinions on mental well-being and fashion, among other topics, in her Instagram posts and YouTube videos. She became engaged to her longtime partner Shane Gregoire in 2023.
