Kalki Koechlin, Richa Chaddha, Arslan Goni promote Jia aur Jia in Kolkata
Kolkata, Oct 12 (IBNS): Bollywood actors, Kalki Koechlin and Richa Chaddha, flew down to the city on Wednesday to promote their upcoming film Jia aur Jia.

The two actors were accompanied by new comer, Arslan Goni, who is also part of the film's cast.
The film is centered on two completely different women, both with the same name Jia, who went for a road trip during a budget holiday to Sweden.
While Kalki plays the role of a girl who is completely outgoing, Richa's character is quite stressed out and introvert.
Elaborating her character, one of the lead actors of the film, Kalki said: "My character is outgoing, wild, wants to live moments of life. "
Although films like Dil Chahta Hain, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara centred on road trips, those were mainly male-oriented. 
Richa, the other lead actor, said she has researched about Indian films centred on road trips undertaken by girls but unable to find one.
Jia aur Jia is an exception where two girls will be shown undertaking road trips on a budget holiday.
Speaking about the USP of the film, Richa said: "Indian girls taking trips together is the USP of the film. People should know girls in India take trips together, sometimes they go for solo vacations. Sometimes they go in groups because of safety issues."
"So, in this case, these two girls plan budget holidays that is why they have to become partners with each other, so it is really about girls having fun..." she added.
However, Richa said there is no message in the film other than 'live life everyday as if it is the last'.
Arslan, who is making a debut in Bollywood with Jia aur Jia, said it has been a wonderful experience to work with two female co-actors, Kalki and Richa.
Speaking about his own character in the film, Arslan told IBNS: "I am playing a cocktail in the film. My character is half Swedish and half south Indian. He is a sculpture who lives in his own world. When he meets the two women in the film, he starts to see life in a different perspective. "
Jia aur Jia is slated for release on October 27.
