Kalki Koechlin is gearing up for the release of her next film, Goldfish, which will see her share the screen with Deepti Naval. The film, helmed by Pushan Kripalani, will have its world premiere at this year’s Busan International Film Fest, which will take place from October 5 to 14. The movie marks Kalki’s first feature length film in almost three years. The actress recently opened up about how she felt good content was scarce these days, be it in film or in the OTT space.

In conversation with IANS, the actress spoke of how she chose a script for a project, saying that she mostly relied on her gut instincts rather than her mind when saying yes to projects. She said that there were a lot of times when she chose projects that excited her curiosity. But that being said, the actress has also said yes to projects which were good for commercial viewership. She also added that she also chose projects when she needed the work.

Good content is something that is incredibly important to Kalki. But she is of the opinion that good content is something that seems to be a rarity. Kalki acknowledges that OTT has played an important role when it came to providing employment and giving up and coming actors many chances to display their talent. But despite its pros, good content is something that is as hard to come by in the digital sphere, as in films.

“If I have anything to crib about, it is that there is too much content to read, and since I always insist on reading the entire thing not just a synopsis, it can get exhausting when the content is not great”, she said.

On Goldfish, Kalki said that the film’s script was so profound and powerful that she could not say no. The actress had to put on an English accent and as it was the second wave of the pandemic, a lot of the readings for the film had taken place over zoom. The actress also recently wrapped up Arjun Varain Singh’s Kho Gaye Hum Kahan.
