Pretty Kalki Koechlin, who is known for her off-beat roles in ‘Dev D’ and ‘Shaitan’, will soon be playing a new avatar in her forthcoming movie. She will be seen in fun loving movies, such as, 'Ek Thi Daayan' and 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'. The 29-year-old actress began her career playing a MMS scandal victim and turning into a prostitute in 'Dev D'. Then, she portrayed a student activist in ‘Shanghai’. When asked if her Dayan’s character in ‘Ek Thi Daayan’ isn’t villainous, she quips, its 'non-daayan' like. In fact, it’s playing a very loving girl, someone who everyone falls for. This is again the kind of character that she had never done before. “I am getting into the shoes of this really 'bindaas', loud and funny girl."

The film, directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, also stars Konkona Sen Sharma and Huma Qureshi. It is a contemporary film set in today's Mumbai, Kalki adds. The actress is also busy these days shooting for the Karan Johar’s production ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’. The movie also stars Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor and is directed by Ayan Mukerji of the ‘Wake up Sid' fame.
