Mumbai: When she is not busy shooting films, actress Kalki Koechlin goes back to her first love - theatre.
"I love theatre, and as long as I have time. It`s great to be able to go back to it and give time to it," Kalki told reporters. "I am happy doing theatre, and it`s been film after film for a while...so it`s nice to get back to theatre, it`s a welcome break," she added.
The Indian actress of French descent has studied theatre and featured in several plays before trying her luck in Bollywood.
She landed a role in Anurag Kashyap`s 2009 film `Dev D` and went on to feature in films like `Shaitan`, `Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara`, `That Girl in Yellow Boots` and `My Friend Pinto`.
She will next be seen in Dibakar Banerjee`s "Shanghai" and Vishal Bharadwaj`s "Daayan".
In her free time, she had been writing a new play.
"I have finished writing a new play, which I am very excited about. I haven`t titled it yet. The subject of the play is death, but the play is actually comical. It`s dark comedy," she said.
