Actress Kalki Koechlin, who essays the role of a cerebral palsy effected girl in Shonali Bose’s directorial “Margarita With A Straw”, says the audition for this film was toughest for her and she took it as a test for herself.

“I loved the script. Shonali (Bose) e-mailed it to me and immediately I wrote back to her that I loved the script. It scared the hell out of me that she could even think that I could do this,” Kalki told reporters here Wednesday at the trailer launch of the film.
