5 INTERESTING UNKNOWN FACTS:

1. Kalki is a multi-linguist and is well versed in English, French, Hindi, and Tamil.

2. Her great-grandfather, Maurice Koechlin, was the chief engineer of the Eiffel Tower as well as the Statue of Liberty.

3. She co-wrote the movie That Girl In Yellow Boots with Anurag Kashyap.

4. She is also a play-writer and has won the prestigious MetroPlus Playwright award in 2009 for the play “Skeleton Woman” which she co-wrote with Prashant Prakash.

5. Her French parents met 38 years ago in India and were hippies who found love and life in the country.

5 FAMOUS QUOTES:

1. For me, it’s  very disturbing that we cannot expect a woman being sexually active or being vocal about her desires. This explains we have a long way to go in terms of being a gender equal country.

2. If children grew up understanding that two people of the same gender can love each other, it is easier to accept.

3. Bollywood is patriarchal as our society. I once met a producer who asked me about my age, and I said 30. To this, he replied, ’Don’t worry, you still have five years left’.

4. I remember writing a poem about a flower that has to be plucked. Though it is nice to give someone a flower, you are killing   the flower. I was probably ten when I wrote it.

5. I’ve always believed  that sisterhood, the idea  of sharing women’s stories, understanding other women, knowing  that you are not alone is very empowering.

5 MOST POPULAR DIALOGUES:

1. Pehle lagta tha ki zindagi ek intezar hai ... a long boring wait ... lekin ab lagta hai jaise ki zindagi ek film ki tarah hai ... boring hai toh kya hua, forward toh kar sakte hai na - Shaitan

2. Baba Ke Dukaan, Ghar Ke EMI I Mean We Have So Much Responsibility -Ribbon

3. I`m 25 & I’m Still Locked Up In This House. -Mantra

4. I’m so F**KING done with you - Waiting

5. He’s my Husband. I have full Right To see Him - Waiting
