6 Reasons Why Kalki Is The Best Choice For Margarita With A Straw

Updated on 22 April, 2015 at 11:51 am By

A movie that has received worldwide acclaim, got Amir Khan crying, and made Amitabh Bachchan sing praises is Kalki Koechlin starrer ‘Margarita With A Straw’. Kalki’s remarkable acting makes you wonder if someone else would have fitted in the role like her. We try to throw light on what could have been the reason behind casting her in this highly-challenging, and mentally excruciating role of a girl with cerebral palsy.

1. She has done challenging roles before.

From the moment she stepped into the industry, Kalki has been known for doing power-packed roles. Her maiden movie, ‘Dev D’, had her playing the role of a young prostitute. Which young actor, and that too a newbie, would have preferred taking such a risk?

2. Her versatility is splendid.

Her list of movies though might not fall in the Rs.300 crore blockbuster club, but Kalki has nothing to get worried about, as her movies are remembered for her remarkable performances. From ‘Dev D’ to ‘That Girl In Yellow Boots’, from ‘Shaitan’ to the much recent ‘Margarita With A Straw’, she is more of a talented actor than a blockbuster hungry star.

3. She is immensely hardworking.



Not many would know, but she went through six months of training for her role of Laila in ‘Margarita With A Straw’. She wanted to catch every nuance of cerebral palsy and went to the length of putting marbles in her mouth to practice speech.

4. Supremely talented person.

We are familiar with her acting talent but not many know that Kalki is a talented writer as well. She co-wrote the critically acclaimed ‘That Girl In Yellow Boots’ with Anurag Kashyap and also co-wrote the winning play ‘Skeleton Woman’, which won the prestigious MetroPlus Playwright Award in 2009.

5. Her unconventional looks make her stand-out.

Of French descent, Kalki is not like the conventional Bollywood actresses. The way she dresses and presents herself has garnered enough limelight. But what has earned the celebrity status for her is, undoubtedly, her acting and the love of her audience.

6. Always followed her heart.

From her monologue at the Indian Today Conclave on International Women’s Day to speaking about her sexual abuse, Kalki has never shied away from doing things against odds. Choosing this movie was also a decision that many actresses would have shuddered to take, but we are glad that Kalki was there to give her nod.
