Margarita with a Straw actress Kalki Koechlin was critically acclaimed for her bold role in the movie, along with the film’s adult themed content. It saw her playing the role of a bisexual student affected by cerebral palsy and the movie had a tough time with getting a censor certificate, before it was finally given the green signal. The film was made by Shonali Bose and had received worldwide recognition after it was played in many international festivals worldwide.
From her part Kalki says that the interference of the censor board in a film’s theme or content should stop once it has been categorized for Adult Audience (A-Rated), and it’s not correct to check what adults should be watching. In a way Kalki might be right, but are we as a society ready for it?
Kalki would be seen in her upcoming movies Mantra and Love Affair and has been recently divorced from film maker Anurag Kashyap.
