Ac­tor Kalki Koechlin (right), who is pop­u­lar for por­tray­ing un­con­ven­tional roles on the sil­ver screen, says she has no im­me­di­ate plans to don the di­rec­tor's hat. Asked if she plans to di­rect a film any­time soon, Kalki said, “No, I have no plans right now. I don't think that I would be di­rect­ing a film any­time soon.”

The Shai­tan ac­tor says she doesn't “re­ally plan what hap­pens next.” “For now, I am just fo­cus­ing on films and theatre," she added.

Kalki will be seen in an up­com­ing film di­rected by Konkona Sen Sharma which also fea­tures Vikrant Massey, Gul­shan De­va­iah, Om Puri, Til­lotama Shome, Tanuja and Ran­vir Shorey.

Apart from this, Kalki says she has sev­eral other projects.

"So, I have a project which is a web-se­ries. It re­volves around Goa pol­i­tics and Goa mafia," said the ac­tor, who is cur­rently in the US to stage Ra­jat Kapoor's play “What's Done Is Done” for three weeks.

Does she see women-cen­tric films as a phase?

"There is need for these phases. I will be very happy if there is no need for them be­cause women are em­pow­ered. As long as women are in need of be­ing recog­nised, I think this phase will con­tinue," said the 32-year-old ac­tor.

Kalki re­cently acted in Wait­ing, op­po­site Naseerud­din Shah.
