Bollywood actress Kalki Koechlin is all set to feature on BBC World Service's new podcast series on India. The podcast titled Kalki Presents: My Indian Life which will be launched on August 4 will revolve around real life stories of young people in India.

Talking about her debut in the podcast series, Kalki said to a leading news agency, "I'm so excited about this podcast. If you are young and Indian, this is your podcast. And even if you aren't, I still think you will love it. I'm bringing you the most amazing stories about young Indians for young Indians. Some of the stories are uplifting but some are pretty raw."

The podcast will feature subjects that are a matter of concern in India. Every major issue like family conflict, sexual abuse, harassment, caste discrimination, victim shaming, body insecurities, sex education etc. will be discussed under the sun. It will be a ten episode series and the preview of the same will be aired in mid July. The podcast is specially targeted for Indian audiences.

Adding further, she said, "I won't be shying away from tackling some pretty tough subjects sometimes ones that you or people you know might consider to be taboo. I'll be lifting the lid on some issues that matter to young people in India today. And I want to get lots of people in India podcasting because listening to podcasts is such a fantastic way of spending your time."

Well, it would be interesting to see Kalki podcasting about issues that embarrass India.
