New Delhi: The stunning and ravishing Bollywood actress Kalki Koechlin turns 32 today. She, with versatile and intense acting skills, had carved her niche in B-town within a short span of time.

Kalki is French but her heart is Indian. She grew up in India and everything about her is Indian. Apart from her stunning performances in the movies, Kalki is also an art lover. She loves theatre and we can tell from her exceptionally good acting. Kalki has many more years to excel and surprise us with her ‘zara hatke' roles.

Be it her choice of films or her dressing sense, Kalki makes sure to leave an impression everytime she marks a presence.

On her 32nd birthday today, here we bring you some of the best roles played by the diva Kalki Koechlin:

1. Margarita, with a Straw:

Kalki plays the lead role in the movie ‘Margarita, with a Straw'. The stunning actress is seen in a role of a girl with cerebral palsy.

While the movie is about her struggle with the normal activities in her life, Kalki did complete justice with her role. The actress won accolades for her performance in the movie including the Best Actress Award Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival in Estonia.

2. That Girl in Yellow Boots:  

The vibrant actress plays the role of Ruth in Anurag Kashyap's ‘That Girl in Yellow Boots'. Ruth is a British woman who reaches Mumbai in search of her father. A conventional story, Kalki has carried the entire movie on her shoulders and did a phenomenal job.

3. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara:

Although the movie is based on three friends played by Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol but Kalki managed to make her presence felt on the screen.

The actress is seen playing the role of Natasha who is to get married to Abhay.  As a possessive girlfriend and fiancée, Kalki indeed fit into the role pretty well.

4. Dev D:

Kalki Koechlin made her Bollywood debut with Anurag Kashyap's ‘Dev D' which was the modern version of Devdas. She played the character Chanda/Leni, who is a Delhi school student who falls into an MMS scandal while dating a boy much older in age.

Not just Kalki impressed everyone with her performance; she also left a long lasting impression on the minds of the audience.

5. Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani:

While ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' was called out to be a Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone movie, it was Kalki Koechlin whose performance was also appreciated.

She was seen playing a tomboy who was secretly in love with her best friend Avinash.

With this role, Kalki broke the monotony of her serious characters and watching in her in that tapori and raw attitude was a complete delight.
