Actress Kalki Koechlin says people’s support for her latest film Margarita, With A Straw, (MWAS) centred around a differently-abled person, has made her hopeful about the success of movies with unconventional subjects.
Kalki stars as a 19-year-old girl suffering from cerebral palsy in the recently-released romantic comedy. The film talks about her struggle with the normal activities in her life.
Happy with the public response to the film, the Dev D actress tweeted, “I’m going to be out of network for a few days so just want to say what an overwhelming response for MWAS. It restores my faith in people.”
National Award-winning multi-lingual film Court also released the same day. Kalki, 31, said she was happy that fans also supported the independent courtroom drama, which features no big star.
“And I want to thank each and everyone of you who stepped out on the opening weekend for MWAS or Court. You make films like these possible,” the actress tweeted.
