Waif-like actress Kalki Koechlin turns 28 today and has slowly, but surely found her space in the glitzy world of Bollywood. Here are some things you might not know about the striking actress.
Besides being an exemplary actress and writer, she's a painter and juggler.
Her home in Versova has one other tenant - her cat Dosa. It's companion Masala ran away last year, leaving behind 'sada Dosa'!
Koechlin can speak Tamil, English and French. But she had to learn Hindi before she wowed audiences with her performance in 'Dev D'.
Her French parents met 38 years ago in India and were hippies who found love and life in the country.
The much loved monument, the Eiffel Tower, was allegedly designed by her ancestor Maurice Koechlin, a French structural engineer. But credit was finally given to French architect Gustave Eiffel.
