The actress has been lauded for bringing versatility on to celluloid with her diverse roles — be it Dev D, Shaitan or That Girl in Yellow Boots. Overall, Kalki has been a part of serious and offbeat cinema, and tries to strike a balance with the commercial aspect of the business by being part of films like Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.

"I am not getting any commercial films. I don't know why... I am a victim of my own image," Kalki told IANS.

Koechlin, who made her TV debut with Kalki's Great Escape, feels "people kind of slot you after each and every performance".

"You have to constantly break that which is what I keep on doing. And yes, it will come back," added Kalki, who is seen on the FOX Life TV show with her father Joel.

Talking about her other projects, she said: "I am doing a documentary Azmaish — Trials of Life. It is about travelling through our country and asking people what they think of India and what they think can improve their country."
