Kalki, a theatre enthusiast, loves the medium as she feels it gives her a chance to be spontaneous.

“I have done some theatre, studied theatre and for me, it’s exciting to come back to theatre because you are spontaneous and you can constantly change your act to suit the audience. It makes you react a lot more to things around you. I enjoy it,” the 30-year-old said here Wednesday at the press conference of the play.

“Trivial Disasters” is a comedy play and Kalki plays five characters in it.

“‘Trivial Disasters’ is very funny, there is a lot of comedy and it is also dark. There are nine stories in this play and we all are playing different characters. I am playing five characters,” Kalki said.

“One is a very shy girl, then an older lady, even a young sales boy who is hyper and energetic. So it is a fun play,” she added.

“Trivial Disasters”, directed by Atul Kumar, also stars Richa Chadda, Purab Kohli and Cyrus Sahukar.

    I attended their show in Delhi yesterday on 31.08.14, It's was a disaster !. Ridiculous comedy, aimless and pointless plot, the quality of the show reminded me of the typical comedy shows which come in these regional channels. Several people left during the show, I had to apologize to my friend whom i forced to come along. Am just glad i went for the cheaper seats (yet not so cheap seats - i mean for the quality of show they offered). The crowd that turned up were mostly educated, modern metro crowd and a quick scan of the mood after the show indicated widespread discontent. Disappointing really.
