Actor Kalki Koechlin, who is married to filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, says she would not mind directing plays, but is not interested in going behind the cameras for a commercial film.

“I don’t think I have the knowledge of technicality. But certainly in future, I would direct for theatre, but I’m not looking to turn director for commercial films. I don’t see myself directing films,” she says, adding: “Theatre is something I enjoy the most, so certainly I will direct for it, but I don’t know when. Let’s see how things fall in place.”

The Indian actor of French descent has studied theatre in the past, and she even featured in several plays before foraying into filmdom. Her latest Bollywood film is the recently-released Ek Thi Daayan.

At a time when Bollywood is witnessing remake after remake, the actor says she she doesn’t mind the trend and would like to be part of remakes of movies like Pyaasa or Mirch Masala.

“When I joined this industry, I watched so many Hindi films. When I learnt about Hindi films, I really started liking them. I would like to be part of some remakes,” says Kalki.
