Kalki and team have been promoting their film, which has got an extraordinary response from Bollywood as well as the audience.

And guess what? At one of the promotions, we spotted the girl who inspired director Shonali Bose for the film. It was none other than Shonali’s cousin Malini, who suffers from Cerebral Palsy herself.

Kalki used to spend time with Malini in order to understand the condition and her mannerisms better for her character Laila in the film.

She looked beautiful in her bright yellow kurta and blue wrap around skirt. Looks like she and Shonali teamed up to match their clothes, as the director too wore a saree in the same yellow and blue colours, along with a pink bindi matching to the border of the saree.

What  a lovely photograph!
