When Kalki Koechlin was asked whose biopic she would love to star in, she replied, Sister Nivedita, “Whenever it is made, I am sure I will be considered because she is an English woman and I can do an English accent.
She moved to India to follow Swami Viveknanda and set up a lot of schools for young girls. I have read a lot about her.” Apart from biopic she also wishes to be cast in a remake of Bollywood classic, Pyaasa (1957).
“The songs in Pyaasa were so beautiful. We should remake Pyaasa, so that everybody gets to watch it again. It’s such a simple film yet says so much about humanity and love,” said Kalki adding that the songs should stay intact. On being informed that Aamir Khan has been planning for a few years to remake the film, Kalki said, “I didn’t know that. Please tell him that I am ready to act in the remake.”
