Love, sex & breakups: Kalki Koechlin gets candid!

Love, sex & breakups Kalki Koechlin gets candid!

In a self-proclaimed confession, the 32-year-old Kalki Koechlin mostly feels like an old lady. The actress, who doesn’t like to sit idle for long, is currently having her kitty full with multiple projects. Among her major films, one is Konkona Sen Sharma’s directorial debut, A Death In The Gunj, and Soni Razdan’s Love Affair, based on the Nanavati murder case of 1959. Then she is writing an essay on Ophelia for the British Council, shooting a reimagining of Romeo & Juliet with Adil Husain in Delhi and touring with Rajat Kapoor’s version of Macbeth in the US. Further, there’s Azmaish, a crowd-funded documentary she’s working on with Pakistani filmmaker Sabiha Sumar.

In a freewheeling chat with Elle magazine, Kalki spills the beans on the most controversial topics which often an actor refrains from touching – love, sex & breakups!

“I found it really hard when I left Anurag (Kashyap, her ex-husband). The first year… it was tough. I grew up in boarding school and then shared houses with people, so I had never lived alone. But it’s something I really needed to learn how to do,” confessed the actress.

Post her divorce from Anurag, Kalki’s rumoured love life is nothing less than colorful! If one goes by the gossip mill, there is an assortment of people she’s rumouredly having an affair with; like filmmaker Farhan Akhtar, theater artist Jim Sarbh and her Margarita with a Straw co-star, Sayani Gupta. Feel free to keep guessing, said the actress and elaborated, “What I’ve learned with time, when it comes to the media, is that I have to keep my personal life very personal. I was so candid about it earlier, but that part of my life is not public property.”

Oh, not to miss – Kalki also expressed her views about the taboo topic – Sex. “Sex is better in my thirties; I’m less inhibited with my body. In your twenties, you’re very worried about how people perceive you. I’ve become more selfish in bed now. And I’m much fussier (about partners), my bullshit tolerance is a lot less. I don’t just like someone because they like me, which was the case usually. As you get older, you’re just grateful to be getting some,” stated That Girl in Yellow Boots star.

Keep rocking your badass attitude, woman!
