Kay Kay Menon is known for his powerful performances, regardless of the length of the role. If the glimpses of his performance in the trailer of ‘Vodka Diaries’ are anything to go by, the actor is all set to make an impact again. Playing ACP Ashwini Dixit, who is investigating a series of murders linked to the Vodka Diaries Club, in snow-clad Manali, the actor made sure he gets into the skin of his character. He called debutant director Kushal Srivastava on several days at around midnight to discuss his scenes and imitated his character’s body language even when he was off camera.
All praises for him, the director says, “I had heard that Kay Kay is a perfectionist, but I was really surprised and happy when I saw him being so involved. He would wear his costume and go around in the police jeep given to him even when he wasn’t shooting. He was always in character and would call me at weird hours to discuss his scenes. He was always open to suggestions and improvisations. Initially, he wasn’t sure about the script, eventually he was all praises for it. We shot the film in just 20 days which he thinks are the best days of his professional life.”
‘Vodka Diaries’, produced by K’Scope Entertainment Pvt.Ltd, Vishalraj Films and Production Pvt.Ltd releases on January 19.
