Lesser Known and Interesting Facts about Kalki Koechlin

Kalki has always been a woman to look up to in my opinion. She’s bold, courageous, and sassy as hell, strong-minded to a whole new level. She stands apart from most of the Bollywood stars as she isn't afraid to speak up on controversial issues.
Kalki has done the most unconventional roles from Margarita with a straw to the chirpy bubbly little girl she was in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani.

Let’s celebrate her by knowing the lesser known facts about Kalki Koechlin :

1. A "Great" great-grandfather - Maurice Koechlin

2. Active role in social media for awareness

So there’s this channel called Blush on YouTube by the Culture Machine which tells mesmerizing stories of real women. Blush further talks about their struggles, their problems and their achievements. The series started with Sakshi Malik, the girl who won a gold medal for wrestling in the Rio Olympics in 2016. Later on, Kalki came and started writing scripts, her most famous being ‘Noise’. This video created a real positive buzz online leading her to her next famous script called ‘The Printing Machine.’ 

3. Fluent in more than one languages

Which are total goals I must add? On top of that, she has to film it and make us envy her even more. Like women, we look up to you anyway, can you just sit at home and sip some hot tea.

5. A writer

I’m telling you guys, Kalki has already co-written two scripts with two of the most prominent directions in Bollywood. The first being Anurag Kashyap ‘Girl in the yellow boots’ and the second one, she was awarded the Metroplus Playwright award in 2009 for “The Skeleton Woman”.

6. Has done the oddest jobs

From being a waitress in London during her college days to doing teleshopping ads in Mumbai, this lady has done it all. After shooting for Dev-D, Kalki was unemployed for more than a year. She even considered being a criminal psychologist if acting wasn’t working out for her.

Let’s take a bow for this great being who is so shamelessly herself in a world that is not too supportive of women.
