Irrfan Khan is a brilliant actor but he is not considered as a big star in Bollywood: Kalki Koechlin

Actress Kalki Koechlin is not only known for her versatile acting but also for always speaking her mind. The multi talented actress recently said that she feels unfortunate to see some of the brilliant actors not getting due recognition like their counterparts, but says that one can't live one's life on others' choices.

“I think you can't live your life trying to seek acceptance from other people, which is unfortunately what we do most of the time. If you really believe in what you do, then it should not really matter what other people think,” said Kalki Koechlin to IANS.

“At the end of the day you have to live with the choices you have made and there is nothing much you can do about it. It's hard, many times for actors,” she added.

The actress sited the example of Irrfan Khan and said that despite his power-packed performances in many movies he still isn’t rated as an ‘A-list’ actor in Bollywood.

“Despite Irrfan being a brilliant actor, he is not a biggest actor in India because of the choices he made and the kind of cinema he do, but that is a personal choice and I think they have very fulfilling lives,” concluded Kalki.

Kalki Koechlin, who is married to filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, has been critics favorite for her brilliant performances in ‘Dev D’, ‘Shaitan’, ‘The Girl in Yellow Boots’, ‘Shanghai’ and her only commercial movie ‘Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara’.

Kalki Koechlin recently wrapped up the shooting of Vishal Bharadwaj’s movie ‘Ek Thi Daayan’. The movie is about a free spirited Bohemian girl. The actress will also be seen in Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’.
