All of it was unclear. Now, we are pretty clear that we are not going to be together. We have already applied for divorce and will get it soon."
Anurag and Kalki have shared a healthy relationship post separation, and were often heard talking about their friendship. Anurag, who appeared on Koffee with Karan in the year 2014 was all praise for Kalki. After watching the show Kalki said, "He (Anurag) was saying what he really felt. I found it very touching. Of course, I was moved by what he said. We have a relationship where we can talk to each other."
On being asked 'What makes a woman beautiful?' Koechlin says, " Confidence is what makes a woman beautiful. But, everyone has doubts, we're all human. Even as an actor, you have days when you haven't slept enough, you don't feel like you're good enough or pretty enough and there's that one spot right in the middle of your nose, when you're supposed to do a very important close-up scene. But ultimately, it's all about attitude. You must live with a little abandon and not be self-conscious.
