New Delhi, Sep 21 (SocialNews.XYZ) From ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ to ‘Margarita with a Straw’. From ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ to ‘That girl with yellow boots’. Not forgetting her roles in OTT series like ‘Made in Heaven’ and ‘Sacred Games’. What has remained constant in actress Kalki Koechlin’s career is her ability to focus on scripts that promise to give her enough room to deliver.

“Choosing a script… Well, I think it’s more in the gut than in the mind. Something excites my curiosity. That said, sometimes I do agree to go ahead because it’s good for the commercial audience or because I need the work,” he told her. tells IANS.

Born in Pondicherry to French parents, Koechlin, who spent a significant part of her childhood in Auroville and studied drama and theater at Goldsmiths, University of London, will soon be seen in Pushan Kripalani’s ‘Goldfish’ which will have its world premiere at the 27th Festival. Busan Film International.

Noting that she loved Kripalani’s debut film ‘Threshold’ and has wanted to work with him ever since, the actress adds: “This script was just powerful and profound, there was just no question not to do it. I needed to have an English accent: Occam That was a lot of my prep and a lot of reading on zoom while we were surrounded by the second wave of the pandemic Pushan did his own camera work and often ran two cameras at the same time for the entire scene I loved it that process, we could react so sincerely and spontaneously”.

Koechlin, who co-wrote the drama ‘Skeleton Woman,’ which won her The MetroPlus Playwright Award, and made her stage directorial debut with the tragicomedy ‘Living Room,’ smiles when asked if she still feels like an outsider. . “I feel like an actor. And there is no space big enough to house all of our dramatic efforts.”

Koechlin, who recently wrote the book ‘The Elephant in the Uterus’, which among other things talks about the social stigma of abortions and pregnancies out of wedlock, the toll that pregnancy takes on a body and the unrecognized domestic work of women, you may not have plans to write another book anytime soon, but you’ve surely learned how to deal with comments about your personal life. “Most of the time I ignore it. Besides, I’ve accepted it as part of the job. If I need privacy, I just turn off my phone.”

Remembering the days of confinement, he says that they were difficult. “And it turned out that I had just given birth. It was a lonely time, and the news was so grim that I was afraid to connect with the outside world. The whole period was emotionally charged, but writing ‘The elephant in the womb gave me It gave me a break. I was so grateful to have a small part of me still creating, it gave me some routine to the endless feeling of those days.”

The actor, who has just filmed for ‘Kho Gaye Hum Kahan’, is now working on the third season of his ‘My Indian Life’ podcast with the BBC. “I really want to do more theater. I haven’t gotten there yet, with the balance between mother and work, but I hope it will be soon,” he concludes.
