Kalki and Anurag Kashyap renew their relationship
Kalki Koechlin and Anurag Basu who part ways after two years of happy married life share a very comfortable relationship today. Unlike, other estranged couple, they have not totally cut ties from one another. Kalki and Anurag talk to each other very often and Kalki Koechlin even rented a flat next to the filmmaker’s residence. Last year, they have announced their separation saying that they are taking time apart from eachother.
Kalki was moved when Anurag recently appeared on Karan Johar’s chat show, ‘Koffee With Karan’ and spoke his heart out about her. He went on to say that she was the best thing that happened in his life. Kalki was touched after watching the episode.
"He (Anurag) was saying what he really felt. I found it very touching. Of course, I was moved by what he said. We have a relationship where we can talk to each other," Kalki, who was in the city recently, told PTI.
"Everybody thinks now we are kind of enemies or something but I called him up after that episode. It's a very comfortable relationship that we share," she added. After her last release 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', the versatile actress will be next seen in diverse roles in her upcoming projects which includes Howard Rosemeyer's girl bonding film 'Jia aur Jia' and Saif Ali Khan starrer 'Happy Ending'.
Kalki’s career is going great guns. After the success of ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, she will be next in Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D K's rom-com 'Happy Ending' and then 'Jia aur Jia', which is about girl bonding and also stars Richa Chadda. "Jia and Jia' is a girl bonding film. We have so many of those bromances like 'Dil Chahta Hai' and 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara'... but did not really have a chic flick. It was refreshing to see a movie like that about two girls.
"We both play very opposite characters. Richa plays the role of a very corporate, serious and uptight sort of girl while I am free-spirited and vagabond types. So, when you put two people like that, there is a lot of comedy and drama."
Kalki wants to experiment different roles. "As a larger population of people watch a film like 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' than a film like 'That Girl In Yellow Boots', it enables you to reach that audience. "When that happens, it brings you in a position to do different kinds of films which that audience might watch if they know who you are," she added.
"As an actor I don't want to repeat myself. I want to do something which challenges me and makes me learn something new. But it's also the way people see you. Gradually, I am trying to show the people that I can do different types of things," she said."People have an idea that she will do crazy roles but those kinds of scripts come my way. But yes, if I wanted to have a normal job in an office, I would have gone for something like that. The fact that I am an actor I would not do the same thing over and over again. I would rather do a different thing," she added.
