Kalki, as we all know, is super driven and a motivated actress. She has definitely seen some struggles in her early Bollywoood period along with her failed marriage to director Anurag Kashyap. But that doesn't mean this gorgeous B-town diva will stop at anything.
She has proved to the world that she can come out of anything and everything and still give the audiences what they want. We obviously love Kalki's spirit and hope she achieves greatest heights.
Here are some lesser known facts about the actress.
In most of her school years, she was known to be a very shy person around. When she was 13, she realized that she had an awesome sense of humor so she used that to win over people. But, mostly she used humor in order to get over her shy personality.
In her initial Bollywood years, she claims to have been a victim of the casting couch. She says that it definitely exists in the industry but luckily, she managed to get her way out of it. But the bottom line is that casting couch isn't the answer to an aspiring actor. If you're good, the industry will want you no matter what.
At the age of 9, Kalki admits to have been sexually abused by a family member.
She cracked her first film in Bollywood which was Dev D and after that she was unemployed for a year and a half. She also started thinking if Bollywood was the right place for her during that time. But, we're glad she stayed and we simply love her acting skills.
She can speak English, Hindi, Tamil and French very fluently.
Kalki's father Joel came to India from France nearly 60 years ago. He met Kalki's mother in Puducherry and they fell in love. Her father runs an aircraft making factory.
Kalki Koechlin's great grandfather, Maurice Koechlin was a structural engineer in France. He was one of the contributing engineers to have designed the Eiffel Tower.
