Amitabh all praises for Kay Kay
By Viral Bhayani, IANS
Though the release of his much-awaited film "Paanch" has been delayed, actor Kay Kay need not worry, as Amitabh Bachchan has praised him for his performance in "Deewar".
"He is absolutely fantastic, he plays his negative character with so much confidence. Frankly speaking, I did not know much about him. But after acting in 'Deewar', I want to watch all his films on DVD," Bachchan told IANS.
Kay Kay has been in the entertainment business for 10 years, dabbling in theatre, TV and films and winning the admiration of Pritish Nandy and Anurag Kashyap. Hansal Mehta prophetically hails his entry in films as the arrival of a new star.
Raised in Pune, Maharashtra, Kay Kay completed a bachelors degree in physics and an MBA at Pune University. This was followed by a stint as a manager in a Dadar office.
But finding his job uninteresting and stifling, Kay Kay decided to pursue acting. His excellent performances on stage opened the doors for him.
Hansal Mehta, who offered him the action thriller "Chhal", followed Kay Kay's career on stage for many years. Kay Kay was offered roles on television, which he chose carefully - avoiding gruelling soaps, focusing instead on substantial roles in other serials. The average television viewer would recognise him as prime minister in Zee's serial "Pradhan Mantri".
The move to films was inevitable. He made his film debut in Mahesh Mathai's "Bhopal Express".
Kay Kay has several upcoming projects, including a Pritish Nandy Communications film called "Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi" and Anurag Kashyap's next directorial venture "Gulal".
