"Relieved I can let that bump hang free after months of stuffing it into costumes which fit me at the beginning of shoot schedules in July but were not so easy to zip up by mid-September!

Reacting to her post, several celebrities such as Richa Chadha, Sayani Gupta, Rasika Dugal, Sobhita Dhulipala, Ira Dubey, Evelyn Sharma and Dia Mirza wished her in the comments section.
The 35-year-old actress and pianist Guy Hershberg have been dating for two years now. In an exclusive interview with HT Brunch, Kalki revealed that pregnancy has changed her as a person and added: "I am more deliberate, slower, more patient. When motherhood comes eventually, it brings with it a new consciousness to your sense of person. I still want to work but it is less about the rat race and more about nurturing oneself through one's work."
She also said that she has thoroughly thought about her child's name. "I've chosen a name that works for either gender and that is representative of a gay person because I want my child to have that freedom of movement under the many umbrellas of gender that we have," Kalki told the publication.
Kalki was previously married to filmmaker Anurag Kashyap. However, they divorced in the year 2015. Anurag gave Kalki her big break with Dev D in 2009 and the duo have recently worked together in Sacred Games 2.
