That too after Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani,” she said.

Kalki said that she received an indirect proposition from a film producer, who blacklisted her after she refused to go out with him. She said, “It was not sexual proposition directly but indirectly. A producer wanted to go out on a date with me. I said no and he never got back. The film didn’t happen.” The actor said that she has spoken about having suffered abuse in the past. “I have undergone sexual abuse and I opened up about it first to my therapist and to my then partner. Later, during a conference that Rahul Bose was organising, I discussed it.”

The actor also said that such incidents aren’t specific to Bollywood, but also exist in Hollywood. She continued, “When I went to Hollywood, there was this casting agent who wanted to look at the wrinkles on my face near my eyes.” It was after Dev D that someone referred to her as a ‘Russian prostitute’. She said, “It was after Dev D that I read someone had said, ‘Where did they get this Russian prostitute from?’ I was like, hey I’m not Russian.”
