You’ve seen him as a power-struck son ready to kill his father in “Sarkar”, as an interesting college friend in “Main Meri Patni Aur Who”, as the troubled inspector in “Black Friday” and as a just married man who lets his inhibitions down with a crazy dance numbering “Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd”. If you think Kay Kay Menon’s list of variety is going to end somewhere then I guess you will have to wait and see what is he put to next. Kay Kay is all set to play a fully-filmy role in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s next production.
“I’ve heard the basic narration of Dhulia’s film. I like the character’s filmi quality. He’s flamboyant, opportunistic and slightly evil; quite larger than life. Though in one of my earliest flicks – Hansal Mehta’s ‘Chhal’ – I played a ‘Mission Impossible’ kind of spy with loads of stunts to perform, Tigmanshu’s film will be my first really big somersault into the commercial language. I think I can swing it,” said the actor while while speaking to IANS. He rose to fame as the “thinking woman’s sex-symbol” with “Corporate” and now he plays his role in “Metro” with Shilpa Shetty and Kangana Ranaut. The actor is now pretty comfortable with the rules of Bollywood. “My first film – Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Paanch’ – never got released. I learnt to just do my work to the best of my abilities and then move on. You can’t be hanging on to a project after your job (namely acting) is done. In that sense, I’ve become more practical. By now the industry is aware of my abilities. There’s no need to hard sell myself. The filmmakers who need me will come to me. I’d rather focus my energies on doing the films I believe in,” the actor added.
