Mumbai, October 13, 2017 : Actress Kalki Koechlin says she wishes to work on screen with all the Khans of Bollywood, but she has a softer corner for Shah Rukh Khan.
Asked if she wants to work with any of the top Khans of the industry, Kalki told IANS: “I want to work with all three Khans, but if you ask me my favourite, it has to be Shah Rukh Khan.
“Shah Rukh is my childhood crush. I met him few times in real life as well and he is very charming.”
When it comes to a new bunch of actors, she thinks she “will look nice” with Ranbir Kapoor.
“We worked in ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ and I really liked him as co-star. He is a natural actor and spontaneous. It would be interesting to work with him,” she added.
The actress is trying to balance her career between mainstream and indie films by working with directors like Zoya Akhtar and Ayan Mukerji in films like “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” and “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani”, along with movies like “Margarita, With a Straw” and “A Death in the Gunj” which were popular in festival circuits.
Sharing her wish-list of directors, Kalki said: “I would like to work with an artiste like Vishal Bhardwaj. His cinema is a piece of art, he writes the story, he makes the music of the film and it’s amazing. I think it would be interesting to work with Vikramaditya Motwane as well.”
Currently, Kalki is looking forward to her upcoming film “Ribbon”, also featuring Sumeet Vyas. It is releasing on November 3. (IANS)
Mumbai, Oct 5 : Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who is returning to television with upcoming TV show “TED Talks India Nayi Soch”, says he has no plans of competing with actors Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan on the small screen as they are doing “wonderfully well”.
Salman is currently hosting controversial reality show “Bigg Boss 11” while Akshay is seen as Super Judge on comedy show “The Great Indian Laughter Challenge”.
“To be honest, Salman and Akshay, what they are doing, they are in the league of their own. I am not even competing with them. They are doing wonderfully well,” Shah Rukh said at the launch of the Star Plus show here on Thursday.
“Having said that, I am not saying that our show is so different that we are not competing on the platform. I feel that this (‘TED Talks’) really is a different kind of platform where it has a different sensibility. I am not saying what they are doing is old, has been there and done dead.
“I know what Salman is doing, he is doing aBigg Boss 11′ and Akshay is hosting ‘The Great Indian Laughter Challenge’. But this show is different and unrelatable,” Shah Rukh added.
Shah Rukh said that “TED Talks India Nayi Soch” is an inspiring show.
“I think this will be running in a league of its own and not competing with anyone. It is generally a very hopeful and inspiring show. It will have entertainment. It is not plugged in to get ratings or audiences. The show is about sharing ideas. Hopefully we will be competing with ourselves for what aTED Talks’ has created over the years,” he said.
“TED Talks India: Nayi Soch” is a Hindi TV talk show created in partnership with TED, a non-profit organisation devoted to ‘ideas worth spreading’. It will feature speakers from various fields sharing ideas in TED’s signature format of short, powerful talks. This is the first time TED is collaborating with a major network to produce a TV series featuring original “TED Talks” in Hindi.(IANS)
