Having worked for the third time with Zoya Akhtar, Kalki Koechlin is in a happy space, thanks to the stupendous success of Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy and just like any other actor, Kalki feels that the director has done an amazing job of telling the story. Although Kalki and Alia Bhatt share only one scene in the film wherein Alia hits a bottle on Kalki’s head, this Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara actress was quizzed if such an incident has happened with her in real life, to which Kalki, in an interview to India Today said, “I might have never been involved in such a scene in real life, but I’ve actually seen this happen in front of me.”

A few weeks back, the #MeToo campaign had exploded Bollywood after Tanushree Dutta renewed a decade old sexual harassment case against Nana Patekar and soon after, names of a lot of prominent personalities came under the scanner. From Nana Patekar, Alok Nath, Sajid Khan, Vikas Bahl to Subhash Kapoor and Subhash Ghai, a lot of B-town celebs were accused of sexual misconduct. Now, Kalki is a self-confessed feminist, and when she was quizzed about the Me Too campaign, the talented actress said, “There is a lot of work to be done. But there have been a few positive changes. I’ve witnessed it in some of the plays that I’ve done. In one of the plays I’ve worked in, we were given a document with a code of conduct, which made it a very transparent work space.”

Moreover, Kalki was asked if she has ever faced any uncomfortable situation when she felt she is being subjected to harassment, to which Kalki said that she hasn’t faced it yet. “My stance on feminism is quite solid and transparent. I have a big Fuck off sign on my forehead, so no I haven’t faced it. But what I do see is that there is a lot of casual sexism. That happens when someone makes fun of your body. I’ve experienced that. But I’ve been very clear about my stand from the start, so I haven’t had anything dramatic happen to me,” Kalki said.
