Kalki Koechlin is the ultimate underrated Bollywood beauty with an abundance of talent under her belt. She’s quirky, she’s cool, and she’s got an artsy Instagram feed to prove it! She isn’t your average, mainstream type of girl and has an edge over her counterparts in terms of film choices and public outspokenness.
In her most recent pictures, Kalki is seen wearing traditional desi attire by Raw Mango and is totally owning the look.
The mint green and gold banarsi shalwar kameez complement the starlet’s complexion oh so perfectly. The ensemble is stitched in a traditional silhouette with high slits and cropped sleeves; together with a plunging neckline. The outfit perfectly brings together a modern muse with a hint of old world charm.
Kalki teams the raw silk outfit with a traditional, antique finish choker and statement earrings which in our opinion brings the whole outfit together. The shoes however, are a miss for us. For her makeup, the starlet opts for a completely natural, no makeup look with kohl rimmed eyes. Bronzed cheeks and a nude pout further add to her barely there makeup.
While the outfit and jewellery are traditional, Kalki’s super short pixie hair cut adds the ultimate edge to her overall look.
In a recent interview with Elle Magazine, Kalki opened up on a personal level. “I have thought, “I am not pretty enough” or “My teeth are too big”. I remember going to Hollywood once and this female casting director asked me to come closer to see the wrinkles around my eyes. So it’s just not in Bollywood, it’s world over. But I have grown more confident over the years. I feel more beautiful than I used to,” she said.
She also spoke about her career aspirations, saying, “Of course, I have dreams of wanting to do a main role where I get the guy in the end. You know, I’m the undiscovered Meg Ryan but I don’t think I could only do that. I want to do other things as well.”
Kalki’s Candyflip was released on Netflix earlier this year and she is also part of the second installment of the much-awaited series Sacred Games. We can’t wait to see her in action.
