Kalki teams up with Pak director

Karachi : Finally, the reason behind Kalki Koechlin’s Karachi visit earlier this year is out.

The 32-year-old actress has teamed up with Pakistani director Sabiha Sumar for her new documentary ‘Azmaish – Trials of Life,’ reports the Dawn.

Reportedly, the actor and the director are travelling through India and Pakistan for the documentary and “exploring the two countries through their lifestyles, religious dynamics, and violence stemming from extremism.”

According to Sumar, this project had been in the works for three years.

The director roped in the ‘Margarita with a straw’ actor when they met at MAMI (Mumbai Film Festival) last year.”

“She (Kalki) struck me as someone who empathises with the world and is concerned about its issues. When I told her about the idea for my film she immediately came on board as the Indian partner,” said the director. (ANI)
