The multilingual Bollywood actor Kalki Koechlin shares her Independence Day bol with us. Kalki, who was born in Pondicherry, says she loves her “nanny tongue” Tamil even though a lot of people find it loud and noisy.
Apart from Tamil, Hindi and English, the Dev D actor can also speak in French – the language she speaks with her parents.
