Kalki Koechlin feels that women get criticised the more successful they are. “The amount of criticism you get is directly proportional to how successful you are, especially as a woman.”

What’s important for me is criticism from family and friends… they know that I have certain weaknesses or they recognise… that’s a very Kalki thing to do. They know you,” she added.
