“I love Delhi for its food, I love the street food, the momos, the kebabs... I love the north Indian food,” said the 28-year-old actor. Koechlin, who grabbed eyeballs and also the Filmfare award for best supporting female actor for her debut film, Dev D (2009), is also fond of Delhi’s roads.
“I love the roads here, people are very spoilt with the roads in the Capital, we have horrible roads in Mumbai... So every time we go to Delhi, we’re like ‘
Wah! Rajdhani hai
!’,” said the actor, who is married to filmmaker Anurag Kashyap.
The actor, who worked in Delhi for Dev D, has fond memories of shooting in Paharganj, even though she agrees that it is a crowded area. Koechlin says “she was lucky she wasn’t famous then, otherwise shooting would have been quite tough.”
Her last film, My Friend Pinto, bombed at the box office. However, she received appreciation for her short role in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. Currently, she is shooting for Dibakar Banerjee’s Shanghai, which is slated for a January 26 release. The actor has teamed up with Abhay Deol and Emraan Hashmi in the film, which is a political drama.
