Don't know if I fit in: Kalki

The actress, who believes she's found her place in Indian cinema, doesn't care if she's not accepted in Bollywood social circles

Published: 26th October 2017

Actress Kalki Koechlin says she is least bothered about whether she "fits in" in Bollywood as she is highly passionate about the creative process of a film. "I think I've found my place in Indian cinema. I am not bothered about how many parties I attend or the number of invitations coming in. I am only concerned about my work and that is something I am passionate about."

Kalki has starred in many unusual and offbeat films like Dev D, That Girl in Yellow Boots, Margarita with a Straw and A Death in the Gunj. What sets her apart is also how she openly praises other actresses. When Kalki's Waiting had a clash with Radhika Apte's Phobia, she was generous in lauding the latter's work. "If you have watched that film, you know the whole film was based on nothing but her performance. She is a brilliant actress. A lot of films are released every Friday, but not all of them create an impact in your mind. So I get excited when I see good cinema, and I thank the people who are creating it."

On the style of storytelling changing and filmmakers experimenting with a wide variety of subjects, Kalki says, "The practice of offering more choices to the audience is great. I  love watching romantic comedies and comedy. At times, I enjoy watching documentaries. We want more choices, more variety of films. So this is the exciting phase in our cinema."

Kalki's next, Ribbon, releases on November 3.
