The upcoming film of Kalki Koechin is a hospital drama titled “
Waiting” referring to the “Waiting Room” of a hospital where she meets
Naseeruddin Shah. The two characters happen to be there because of their ailing spouses. In the film, Kalki says, these two characters are directed in opposite directions in life, but there is a kind of connection that binds them. The emotional intelligence that they share has made them gel well in the film and off the set as well. Being an experienced senior actor, the 32-year-old actress says, that she has learned a lot from Naseeruddin Shah.
This is not the first time that these actors will be working together- they were seen together in That Girl In Yellow Boots, and the actress says that she has followed his theater performance closely, quite a few times. She knows his behavioral pattern by now and believes that even Naseer knows her well- their intellect connects the two different souls so well.
In the film, she plays the role of an advertising professional where she is very modern and glamorous and always dressed well, whereas Naseer plays a role of a Philosophy professor who is unaware of the modern ways of life. The relationship that they develop at the moment is out of the emotional background of the two characters and the support that they exchange.
