“To begin with, Kalki is playing this bohemian happy-go-lucky girl in Ek Thi Daayan. In fact, it is a very sweet ‘non-daayan’ like character that she is playing there,” informs a source, “Yes, she does get into an unpredictable zone but the inherent sweetness doesn’t go. It is a contemporary film set in today’s Mumbai.”
The film also stars Konkona Sen Sharma and Huma Qureshi in lead roles. Meanwhile she is also an integral part of Karan Johar’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani which has Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone spearheading the cast.
While that film is still some time away, one wonders whether it would be too early to ask Kalki that who amongst the three is eventually the ‘daayan’ in this Emraan Hashmi starrer.
“Of course it would be too soon,” smiles Kalki, “That is the mystery of the film so how can I reveal that. I am not necessarily a ‘daayan’ but then I could be the one! It is this very unpredictability about the film that I love most.”
Well Kalki, we are waiting for the suspense to be unveiled once Ek Thi Daayan releases all over on 18th April.
