It has been more than a year since DEV D released and turned into a success. Still, one wonders that how has Kalki managed to stay so low key for such a long period. Despite completing two films in the interim (THAT GIRL IN YELLOW BOOTS & HAPPY JOURNEY) and signing two major films like Zoya Akhtar's ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA (with Abhay Deol) as well as Sanjay Leela Bhansali's MY FRIEND PINTO (with Prateek Babbar), she isn't quite seen painting the town red.
"Well, the fact is that I am quite a low key person", she says in a low tone without allowing any over excitement setting in, "I am happy with the work that I am doing, whether it is films or theatre, and this is all that matters to me. For me it is all about working hard and learning something new every day. I am not interested into publicizing myself."
Being her own self is something that Kalki can truly vouch. Finding a place in the industry on her own terms, she is also enjoying a happy live-in relationship with Anurag Kashyap for quite some now. Happy with the way she has been and not looking at changing herself with the world, she also has a piece of advice for the young newcomers who are looking at making a mark in the industry.
"I would advise any newcomer that have your own ethics and values and see the results for yourself. If you start following others or ape someone else, you will end up turning into someone who is just like everyone else. You don't want to become lost amongst the crowd by treading this path. Be grounded and you will see good things happening to you. Over the years, this virtue has helped me for sure", signs off Kalki.
