New Delhi, April 14 – Actress Kalki Koechlin says that though superstar Aamir Khan was forced by wife Kiran Rao to watch her film Margarita, with a Straw, he couldn’t stop weeping when he finally saw it. Kalki, 31, is over the moon with the praise she got from the PK star. “Aamir loved the film.
He was weeping while watching it. It’s surreal to have him sit next to me and say ‘Kalki, what can I do to get people watch this movie?’ It’s excellent. Kiran watched it first and told him ‘You must see this movie’ and he said, ‘What can be great about this film?’ And now he watched it and ended up crying,” Kalki told reporters at the film’s screening.
The actress said that she is excited that the film that won accolades at international film festivals will finally be seen by the Indian audience. “This is the most important audience for me, back home, to be here after travelling the world and seeing the reaction of our fans, who have made us what we are,” she said.
The screening was attended by Amitabh Bachchan, who was seen along with wife Jaya, the film’s director Shonali Bose, the cast of the movie including Revathi and Sayani, and actor Adil Hussain, who conducted workshops for the movie. Margarita, With A Straw will be released in Indian theatres on April 17, 2015.
