Kalki to star in Pakistani Documentary

WEB DESK: A few months back it was reported that Kalki Koechlin was in Pakistan and this made everyone wonder if something was in the making. It is now unveiled that Kalki is all ready to work in a Pakistani documentary.

The Margerita With A Straw actor is collaborating with Sabiha Sumar for her documentary, Azmaish – Trials of Life.

“This project had been in the works for three years. When I met Kalki as a jury member at MAMI (Mumbai Film Festival) last year, she struck me as someone who empathises with the world and is concerned about its issues. When I told her about the idea for my film she immediately came on board as the Indian partner,” said Sumar.

“She visited Pakistan for the first time earlier this year and we traveled across deserts and mountains. The idea was to capture how two women feel the pulse of the two countries,” she added.

She also said that the documentary will be shot in Pakistan and Kalki cam to do some recce and see the locations that were chosen.

“Kalki picked out the Indian locations along with our research team. We shot in a Mumbai local, in a truck in Sindh and played Holi with the fishermen community in Mumbai. A part of the film is yet to be shot. We have now resorted to crowd-funding through which people contributing more than $250 will get access to stills from the shoot which are shot by a top photographer,” she said.
