Episode 5 of MissMalini’s World was all about girl power, so not only did we have the fantastic Priyanka Chopra talking about kicking some serious ass in Mary Kom, we also had a chat with the lovely Kalki Koechlin. The actress, who did a monologue for women’s empowerment, also sat down for a quick conversation with MissMalini to discuss

Check out her monologue here:

“Be aware of your rights as a woman, be aware of your rights as a human being! Education, I think, is the biggest empowerment.”

“I start two films at the end of this year. One is Waiting with Naseeruddin Shah; it’s a beautiful script about… waiting, at a hospital. And the other one, although the contract hasn’t been signed, everyone already knows about it. I read the script and I loved it. It’s Love Affair by Soni Razdan.”

“I do a lot of waiting [to pick a film]! It’s not that I don’t want to do a big fat masala Bollywood film, but I just need to have something to do in it. A lot of stuff that comes my way has nothing for me to actually I do.”

“It’s been 9 months that I waited for a good script!”

“The secret to stage is being present in the moment. Learning your lines comes easy; being present in the moment is hard. So even if someone coughs or laughs, you’re able to respond to that. That’s what makes magic in theatre.”
