Revealing her casting couch experience, Kalki stated that there was a time she was auditioning for a film and producer of the same, asked her on a date. She was seeing someone at that time and refused to go with him, post which she never received a call from the production house about the role or the film. 

She even recalled incidents of sexual abuse and said, “I have undergone sexual abuse and I opened up about it first to my therapist and to my then partner. Later, during a conference that Rahul Bose was organizing, I discussed it.”
