National Award-winning actress Kalki Koechlin, who plays a pivotal role in the upcoming show "Sacred Games 2", has bagged the project after an audition.
Despite having a successful career in films, she says she has no problem auditioning to prove her capability.
While the phone call for the audition of the Netflix TV Series came as a surprise for her, recalling the incident, Kalki told IANS: "I watched the show and after a month I got an audition call for the show.
Of course, I never thought that I will become part of the show when I watched the first season. I was surprised and excited when I got called.
"Auditioning for a role is quite refreshing because the director should know if I am able to pull off the character I am offered.
They might have seen my work so far but if I am offered something different from what I have done in the past, they should audition me. I do not mind auditioning at all."
"I may not have auditioned many times for Bollywood projects but I keep auditioning for international projects and that process keeps it real for me, keep me grounded," added the 'Gully Boy' actress.
In "Sacred Games 2", she plays a girl named Batya, who hails from a conflicting background. Her father is a Jewish French and mother is a Palestinian, who abandoned her as a teenager.
The character transforms from being a drug addict and a rebellious angry girl to a follower of the godman 'Guruji', played by Pankaj Tripathi.
The initial outlook of the character has similarities with a few of her earlier works, isn't it? "Yes" she quips.
