Actress Sayani Gupta, who made her debut in Hindi cinema with the film “Margarita With A Straw”, says her co-star Kalki Koechlin has been a “massive” support system for her.
“She has been a massive support system. We are very alike in our thinking and have a similar kind of background in theatre. Hence, our approach towards work is also similar,” Sayani, who has a role in “Fan” and “Jagga Jasoos”, said in a statement.
She says if there’s one thing she wants to learn from Kalki, it is time management.
“She manages to do so much film work, theatre, writing, directing, events, photo shoots all at the same time so beautifully,” she added.

Sayani finds herself in a soup as far as managing dates is concerned.
“One of the biggest dilemmas that I face as an actor, is managing dates. When I was confirmed for ‘Fan’, I had already packed dates for ‘Jagga Jasoos’ and another film for Dharma Productions that eventually didn’t take off.
“I called Kalki for advice and she said, ‘Say yes to everything, one or the other will get pushed, if not all!’. And true that, one film never began and I was totally able to manage dates for ‘Fan’ and ‘Jagga Jasoos’ is still on,” she said.
