Actress Kalki Koechlin, who will make her television debut with Kalki’s Great Escape, says she is very selective when it comes to working on the small screen, as she would prefer “acting in films or doing theatre” over playing herself on TV.

The actress also said she made an exception for the FOX Life show as it allowed her to spend some time with her father Joel, and as the show resonated with her personality.

“I don’t do many TV shows because I’d rather be doing films or theatre. I am an actor. I would rather be acting than playing myself on TV. So I don’t do TV shows, so this was the time I did since we (she and her father) did this again after many years,

The Great Escape will be aired on Sep 17th 2016 on Fox Life
