During her initial days in showbiz, she used to get upset over negative reviews, criticism and social media trolls. However, actress Kalki Koechlin says while surviving in the industry for over a decade, she has now become a "veteran" when it comes to handling comments and compliments.

"I used to get affected by it (being in limelight) when I started my career. I used to get upset about criticism or a troll. Even if I used to get a thousand compliments, I only used to remember that one comment that criticised me. Somewhere it's human nature... We tend to do that," Koechlin said.

"But with experience, now I let it go. I have been here for a decade now so, now I am like a veteran. Now I take criticism and praise in the same way... I look at them in a constructive way, something that can help me learn and evolve.

The 33-year-old is best known for portraying unconventional characters onscreen. She ventured into filmdom with Dev D and went on to play critically acclaimed roles in films like Shaitan, That Girl in Yellow Boots, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, My Friend Pinto, Margarita with a Straw, Waiting and more.
