Kalki Koechlin, the unconventional looking actress from Dev D is happy with what she has in life.
Kalki said, "I feel settled in life and at peace with myself. Life changed after Dev D, but I am not keen on commercial cinema or any rat race of such sort. Mumbai is a place of change right now. We are seeing some fascinating alternative cinema today."
And her unconventional looks are but natural which doesn"t fit into the normal scheme of things in B-Town. It's because she is an Indian-born girl of French parents. She is multilingual actress and has been educated at Goldsmiths College in London.
In fact, thanks to her different looks, she"s been rejected for parts from mainstream producers before Dev D happened.
Now that Kalki Koechlin doesn"t have too much work in hand, she is been attending and walking the ramp at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week, in which she played a small part last year too (not many recognized her then). She is pleased that the clothes she wore suited her personal style.
She said, "I attended the fashion week last year. I did a hair show, but it was very low profile. I enjoyed the experience this year walking for Preeti S Kapoor. The clothes were very bohemian, a lot like my personal style."
Same goes for her live-in relationship with Anurag Kashyap which has raised a few eyebrows but she"s cool about it. She added, “Anurag and I are very similar individuals. We"re both very artistic and unconventional. And also very much like outsiders - I never completely fitted into India due to my looks and he"s a Bollywood director but never goes by the rulebook. Also, I enjoy his honesty and sincerity."
This girl seems to be very happy with her one of a kind way of life. Very interesting, indeed.
