Kalki Koechlin opens up about being typecasted in Bollywood

It is not so common to see actors in Bollywood getting typecasted in certain kinds of roles. While some actors are pleased to get typecasted in the kind of roles they love to do, there are others who avoid getting typecasted in order to play a wide range of characters. In a recent media interaction, actress Kalki Koechlin shared that she often gets offered roles of high class and rich characters because of her half Indian half French background.

Kalki told Hindustan Times, “I have had a director say to me, ‘I think you will completely ace this role because you play a psychotic in it’. That’s the kind of perception people have of me, and I feel quite frustrated. Obviously because of the colour of my skin, I can only play these upper-class characters."

Talking further about how one's appearance affects the kind of roles they recieve, Kalki said, “I know of an actor with a dusky complexion who is always given the role of a maid. That frustrates her. Everyone has been put into boxes. I am waiting for the right role to come my way so that I can challenge myself."

On the work front, Kalki is gearing up for the release of her film 'Goldfish' in which she will be seen playing a half Indian half Brit woman.
