Kalki Koechlin opens up on being typecast because of skin colour

Kalki Koechlin has proved her mettle in films such as Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, 

Margarita with a Straw, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and many more

In her new interview, the actress has spoken about being typecast in the industry because of her skin colour

She revealed that though it is being said that it is a great phase for all the actors across age

Kalki said that the discrimination over an actor's complexion is still prevalent in the film industry

 "I have had a director say to me, ‘I think you will completely ace this role because you play a psychotic in it’

That’s the kind of perception people have of me, and I feel quite frustrated

Obviously because of the colour of my skin, I can only play these upper-class characters

Kalki is also aware of the fact that she is not the only one who is suffering from this practice
