Actress Kalki Koechlin finally reveals that she is five months pregnant in an exclusive interview with HT Brunch. She is dating pianist Guy Hershberg. The Sacred Games actress told the publication, “I know that I want to be an engaged parent. My concern is to connect with my child, not to have a particular rule, or expectation.”
Guy and Kalki have been dating each other for two years now and they have also given much thought into naming their child.
“I’ve chosen a name that works for either gender and that is representative of a gay person, because I want my child to have that freedom of movement under the many umbrellas of gender that we have,” Kalki said in the HT Brunch interview.
The sources also informed that Kalki has zeroed in on the idea of water birth and that she will fly down to Goa by this year end for that. “She’s been reading up on reduced trauma for the child as well as the stress-free environment for the mother in labour,” HT reported.
Kalki has also shared her experience that how pregnancy has changed her as a person: “I already feel the changes in the way I react to things. I am more deliberate, slower, more patient. When motherhood comes eventually, it brings with it a new consciousness to your sense of person. I still want to work but it is less about the rat race and more about nurturing oneself through one’s work. It becomes about infusing concentration and energy inward.”
Kalki Koechlin was married to renowned filmmaker Anurag Kashyap but they had divorced in 2015. Kalki has given excellent performances in several films such as Dev.D, A Death In The Gunj, Ribbon and Gully Boy. Kalki also famously featured in the Netflix series Made In Heaven and Sacred Games. She will be next seen in another project of Netflix and she made her Tamil film debut with a cameo in Ajith Kumar’s Nerkonda Paarvai.
