Eight years ago, when she made her debut in Anurag Kashyap’s Dev D, Kalki Koechlin made India sit up and take notice even though she didn’t fit into the classic template of a Hindi film heroine. Besides her piercing gaze and consummate skill as an actor, it’s Koechlin’s choice of roles that makes her a torchbearer of sorts for all things offbeat, quirky, unconventional. Once again, the lissome actress makes news for her unique choice of projects, as she becomes one of the first from the mainstream brigade to do a web series. The series, titled Smoke, is based on the workings of the drug mafia and politics in Goa. In an interview to a leading newspaper, Koechlin mentioned that she will be playing a Portugese-Goan DJ. “I enjoy trying new experiences in my career but this one was tough,” she said. “We’ve shot at night and in places where it isn’t easy to put up cameras.” We love the thrills, chills and—ahem—pills already.
