Kalki Koechlin to play novelist battling Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in next
The success of the web series Made In Heaven behind her, Kalki Koechlin is set to feature in a psychological thriller, Bhram. Sangeeth Sivan’s digital offering has been inspired by Hari Kumar K’s book, The Other Side Of Her.
Discussing his offering, Sivan tells mid-day, “It is about the workings of the mind, and how it affects us. Kalki plays a writer in the series.” Koechlin essays the part of a novelist suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) following an accident. “It’s not a conventional role. There are many shades to her character. We needed someone who is versatile and who could slip into the part with ease. Kalki has been doing some great projects.”
The first schedule of the eight-episode Zee5 series went on floors last week in Shimla. “We have shot for four days. Kalki will join us today. Almost 90 per cent of the shoot is set in Shimla; the rest will be held in Mumbai. There is a possibility of a second season.”
