Sayani Gupta’s debut in Indian cinema was in a path breaking film Margarita with A Straw.
While the movie released a while back, she has developed a great friendship with her co-star Kalki Koechlin who she often turns to for advice on personal and professional front.
There came a day in Sayani’s life when she had to choose between two very important films Jagga Jasoos and FAN . In a state of total dilemma, she made a call to Kalki who advised her into taking up both the projects without worrying too much.
Talking about her friendship with Kalki and the bond they share, Sayani explains, “She has been a massive support system. We are very alike in our thinking. One thing that I want to learn from her is time management. She manages to do so much film work, theater, writing, directing, events, photo shoots all at the same time so beautifully.”
Sayani adds, “One of the biggest dilemmas as an actor I face is managing dates. When I was confirmed for Fan, I had already packed dates for Jagga and another film for Dharma that eventually didn’t take off. I called Kalki for advice and she said, “Say yes to everything, one or the other will get pushed, if not all!” And true that, one film never began and I was totally able to manage dates for Fan and Jagga is still on. I will always remember that advice.”
