The very talented and bold actress Kalki Koechlin who has given us some of the best performances in movies like ‘That Girl in Yellow Boots’ and ‘Margarita With a Straw’ to name a few has always gone the unconventional path. Well, if you thought Kalki is all about these movies, then you are wrong. The actress has much more to her than this.
In the year 2009, Kalki bagged the pretigious MetroPlus Playwright award for the play “Skeleton Woman” that she had co-written with Prashant Prakash. She has written, produced and acted in many stage plays in India.
Kalki has French connections okay! Her father Joel Koechlin was originally from France and he came to India around 60 years back. He met Kalki Koechlin’s mother, Francoise Armandie, at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Auroville, Puducherry. Her father now runs a experimental lightsport aircraft-making factory and her parents are separated.
Not many know that Kalki was cast opposite Imran Khan for a Coca Cola commercial. The ad was voted the best of the IPL by the TOI Advertisement awards.
