Kalki Koechlin is one actress who hasn’t followed trends in doing only mainstream films. Despite being a part of many projects that have included big names, it’s the independent films that she has done that has made the most impact.
When asked about if it’s a conscious decision to do independent films, The Indian Express reported Koechlin stating, “No, no it’s not my conscious decision to choose mainstream films, I’d very much like to do mainstream as well as independent, thought-provoking work, but nothing tempting comes my way very often unfortunately.”
With a number of films in the pipeline, the actress will soon be seen in an interesting documentary helmed by Pakistani director, Sabiha Sumar titled ‘Azmaish’.
The documentary focuses on two women from India and Pakistan journeying to both countries in search for answers about why people subject to religious extremism. Talking about her role, Koechlin expressed, “My role in ‘Azmaish’ is pretty much that of an observer, someone who watches and meets people, mainly from the outside, more to get people’s opinion about their countries. Sabiha is the director and it’s really her film.”
Talking about the project, the report revealed Sumar stating, ” ‘Azmaish’ is for all those who want a just society, all those who value freedom of choice, all those who are interested in a violence free today and tomorrow. It has a universal relevance as it draws us all in a debate about religious violence – both emotional and physical.”
