New Delhi:

Actress Kalki Koechlin told mid-day she can "associate with her character" in newly launched web-series Made In Heaven as she "needed therapy" after her she divorced Anurag Kashyap. Speaking about her new show and the character she plays, Kalki told mid-day: "The character is complex and vulnerable. I may not relate to the elite background that she belongs to, but, in terms of her emotional baggage, I could associate with her. I have been through a divorce, and also needed therapy." Kalki Koechlin was married to filmmaker Anurag Kashyap from 2011 to 2015. Anurag Kashyap gave Kalki her big break with Dev D in 2009.

"It's important to (be mindful of) your mental health, and get the perspective of one who is not a family member or a friend, sometimes," Kalki Koechlin added.

In the show, Kalki plays the role of Faiza Naqvi, who is in therapy. Faiza is romantically involved with her best friend Tara's husband Adil. Sobhita Dhulipala plays the role of Tara while Jim Sarbh is Adil.
