Actress Kalki Koechlin rose to fame with her debut film "Dev D", but things didn't get easier for her immediately. She actress says she is self employed person so instead of sitting and twiddling thumbs while waiting for a call, she creates work for herself.
"There has been times when I didn't have work. Everyone thought that after 'Dev D' my life became easy. But actually I was unemployed for a-year-and-a-half. What I did was that I created work for myself. I wrote a play and then we put it up. We performed it for a year. I have always believed in myself and that I will push myself enough to create work for myself," Kalki told reporters.
"I am self employed so I cannot be sitting and hoping for a phone call. If work is not coming for me, I create work. I hope that I am efficient enough in that sense to survive in the industry. I just hope to carry on doing what I do. I've not thought about making sure that I have a career for 10 years. For me, next challenge is what I have now," she added.
The actress, who recently got married to filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, has acted in films like "Shaitan", "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara" and "That Girl In Yellow Boots".
