'Where's the husband? Kalki Koechlin trolled for having a baby without marriage


Kalki Koechlin is expecting her first child with boyfriend Guy Hershberg and revealed that she has been trolled during her pregnancy for having a baby without getting married. Speaking to Pinkvilla, the 35-year-old actress said that while she's not been treated with "judgemental" behavior. The ‘Dev D’ actress trolled for varied reason, ranging from whereabouts her husband to the choice of clothes during pregnancy.

 "I haven't felt that judgement face-to-face but of course trolling I have (faced). Trolling has happened like 'Where's the husband?' and you know 'How can you do this?' and 'Don't wear tight clothes.' So, all of that is there little bit but trolling happens even when you are not pregnant," she told Pinkvilla.

Kalki Koechlin, who is five months pregnant reacted calmly to trolls: "You're just a celebrity. Actually, even if you're not a celebrity. If you have an opinion, which is out there, somebody will disagree with it and that's okay," she told Pinkvilla.

When asked if she has come across people who "looked down upon" her during her pregnancy, Kalki told Pinkvilla: "I'm sure there are but I don't know them personally. So, it doesn't affect my life but whenever it comes to my building, my neighbours, the people around me... they all know I am not married. And they've been super. Aunties have been like coming and like 'Aapke liye kuchh chahiye kya'. They are really, really lovely and sweet."

Revealing her pregnancy, Kalki said that she is already feeling the change in her and that the pregnancy has made her more patient.

"I already feel the changes in the way I react to things. I am more deliberate, slower, more patient. When motherhood comes eventually, it brings with it a new consciousness to your sense of person. I still want to work but it is less about the rat race and more about nurturing oneself through one's work. It becomes about infusing concentration and energy inward," she said.

The 35-year-old further revealed that she plans to give birth to her baby via water delivery. Preparing for her water delivery, Kalki Koechlin has already started preparing for it. Kalki is now spending time listening to Guy's music - who is a pianist, going for walks with him and doing yoga. She has also reduced the use of mobile phones.

On the work front, the actress is frequently seen in a number of web series like Sacred Games2 and Made in Heaven.
