No Cannes for Kalki Koechlin
New Delhi: While filmmaker Anurag Kashyap is all geared up to attend the 65th Cannes International Film Festival, starting May 16, his actress wife Kalki Koechlin won`t be accompanying him but is hopeful that one day she would attend the gala.
"I wouldn`t be able to attend Cannes festival as I would be busy shooting for my film. I have been begging my director to give me some time off, but that`s not happening. But doesn`t matter, one day I would go to Cannes with one of my films," Kalki said.
The actress has begun shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj`s ‘Ek Thi Dayan’ with Konkona Sen Sharma and Emraan Hashmi.
Kashyap is ecstatic after three of his films have been selected for the 12-day festival to be held in the French Riviera.
‘Peddlers’, produced by Guneet Monga of Anurag Kashyap Films Pvt. Ltd, will be showcased alongside six other films from countries like Spain, France, Argentina and Germany at the Cannes Critics` Week, a parallel section of the film festival.
Both parts of Kashyap`s ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, have also been chosen for screening at the fest`s Directors` Fortnight section.
