‘Shanghai’ pushed me to my limits: Kalki

Panaji: Actress Kalki Koechlin says that working on Dibakar Banerjee's 'Shanghai' was a challenging job as the director pushed her to the limits in the political thriller.

The film, an Indian adaptation of Greek author Vassilis Vassilikos’ famous novel 'Z', also stars Abhay Deol, Emraan Hashmi and Bengali superstar Prosenjit Chatterjee and was shot extensively in Maharashtra.

Kalki plays a small town girl in the movie, who gets involved in local politics. "Shanghai was a great experience. It was a very intense shoot for four continuous weeks in Latur and Baramati. Dibakar is a perfectionist as a director, he really pushes you to a limit. It's a political thriller but not a dark film," Kalki told PTI on the sidelines of the ongoing International Film Festival of India here.

The film is currently in post-production and looking at a release in January. Kalki, as of now, has no more films at hand and is concentrating on her play. "At the moment, I am just busy with my play 'The Real Inspector Hunt'. We have been performing at various cities. Theatre is my first love so much so that I was waitressing in London to pay for my studies there. An actor's medium is theatre, you stay in character throughout. In films you jump in and out of shots," said Kalki.
