"Ek Thi Daayan", which the actress describes as "a scary film", also stars Konkona Sen and Huma Qureshi, and Kalki believes the audience will have a tough time figuring out which of the three is the 'daayan' (witch).
"'Ek Thi Daayan' is about a witch and a magician. The mystery is that there are three possible 'daayans' and you guys will probably have lots of competition trying to guess which of us is the daayan."
"I have not done a horror film before. The promotions start in two days, so prepare to be scared," says Kalki, who won critical acclaim for performances in Bejoy Nambiar's "Shaitan" and husband Kashyap's "That Girl in Yellow Boots", which she co-wrote.
"We are still shooting 'Jawaani Deewani'. We will soon be going to Kashmir. Ranbir is good when he is on his best behaviour. I don't know what he puts in his breakfast, but he has too much energy. We have a lot of fun on the set," she said.
"Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" also stars Deepika Padukone.
Kalki is clearly on a roll, and could be looking forward to more accolades after bagging two best supporting actress awards in her nascent Bollywood career.
