I am Waiting For

Back with a new film, Waiting, Kalki talks about her reel and real life character, her take on relationships and working with Naseeruddin Shah.

Waiting is your second film with Naseeruddin. Are you still nervous about working with him?

I was nervous when I did That Girl in Yellow Boots (2010). I couldn’t do my lines the first time I met him. But not this time; I have become much more comfortable.

Tell us about playing Tara in Waiting. Are you similar to her?

No! I hope I am not such a drama queen. She is quite bold. I don’t get to do it on a daily basis. Once in a while, it’s good. It was a challenge to make Tara lovable, because she’s an entitled bratty girl who always has her way.

Have you felt the pang of waiting for something or someone?

I’m always waiting for good roles, for children, for the day I can dance properly. I am waiting for no network on my phone.

How outspoken are you in real life?

I am very straightforward. I look into the eyes and talk.

Do you still believe in marriage?

I believe that it works for some people, I don’t think it’s necessary for a long-term committed relationship.

What’s your take on relationships?

I think it means imagination, commitment and honesty.

What’s next on the film front?

In A Death In The Gunj, I play a half-Bengali half-French character. Then there is Mantra, about the changes in India in the ’90s. I’m also doing a web series called Smoke, in which I play a DJ in Goa.
