It's great time for small independent films: Kalki

News

Mumbai, November 13 :Actress Kalki Koechlin thinks the future of small films is great in the country as big producers are ready to pump in money.

"It is great. There is audience for small... alternate cinema. Today there are big studios... producers willing to invest in small films. Things are changing slowly. The time is great for small independent films as these films are getting attention provided the content is good," Kalki said.

The 31-year-old actress has been part of small budget movies like "Shaitan", "That Girl In Yellow Boots" among others. She tasted commercial success with "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara" and "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani".

"I am happy, I don't get as many commercial films as independent small films. But I am happy I get to do both commercial and independent small films. Both the kind of films help me explore myself as an actor," she said.

Kalki would be seen next in "Mantra". It was her actor friend Rajat Kapoor who brought the idea of the film to her.

Rajat Kapoor told me about this film and I made myself available for the film for ten days," she said.

Director Nicholas Kharkongor of "Mantra" is going for crowd-funding for the post production of the film.

The "Dev D" actress feels the trend of crowd-funding has a great future.
