Kay Kay Menon: The industry is biased towards money

Dear filmmakers who are searching for that one successful formula that can guarantee success, Kay Kay has bad news for you all…

Kay Kay Menon, who has played varied roles in films like Sarkar, Life In A…Metro and Gulaal, doesn’t conform to any particular style and says there is no formula to make a successful film. “I don’t think of trends. I do films I can give my best to and also enjoy. So, I don’t think there is any formula for making successful films. If there had been one, everyone would have been following it,” Kay Kay said. The 48-year-old, who has been working in the industry for over a decade, says that currently lot of filmmakers are churning out wonderful movies, but audiences haven’t opened up to such experiments in a big way. “Over the years there has been a lot of change in the way films are being made. There are some wonderful films being made today, something which we could not have thought of about a decade ago, but the audience has not changed. We don’t get audiences for such films,” said Kay Kay. “It will take time, but it is important for the audience to realise it,” added the actor who worked in TV shows such as Pradhan Mantri and TV movies like Zebra 2 and Last Train To Mahakali at the beginning of his career. In 1995, he entered B-town with Naseem and worked in meaningful cinema like Corporate, Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd, Sarkar Raj and Sankat City. Bollywood is divided into two categories, commercial films and offbeat films, and Kay Kay says he is not in favour of such distinctions. “People have distinguished films for the sake of commerce. Whether the film is commercially viable, it is known only after the film is released. This distinction is wrong. The industry is biased towards money. Once the focus of the industry shifts to creativity from just money, we would go a long way,” he rued. Having said that, he is happy with his acting journey. “I have no complaints so far. My career did have its ups and downs, but at the same time it has given me a lot of friends and I have been able to do different kind of films.” His next is Chaalis Chauraasi that revolves around four cops – Pankaj Suri aka SIR (Naseeruddin), Albert Pinto aka Pinto (Kay Kay Menon), Bhaskar Sardesai aka Bobby (Atul Kulkarni) and Shakti Chinappa aka Shakti (Ravi Kishan). Directed by Hriday Shetty, it will hit the silver screens January 13, 2012. What will work for Kay Kay this time – friends, money or the elusive formula? We wonder.

    A bail bond agent, or bondsman, is any peosrn or corporation that will act as a surety and pledge money or property as bail for the appearance of peosrns accused in court. Although banks, insurance companies and other similar institutions are usually the sureties on other types of contracts (for example, to bond a contractor who is under a contractual obligation to pay for the completion of a construction project) such entities are reluctant to put their depositors’ or policyholders’ funds at the kind of risk involved in posting a bail bond. Bail bond agents, on the other hand, are usually in the business to cater to criminal defendants, often securing their customers’ release in just a few hours. Bail bond agents are almost exclusively found in the United States and its former commonwealth, The Philippines. In most other countries bail is usually much less and the practice of bounty hunting is illegal.
