View Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd Movie StillsActor Kay Kay Menon, who dismantled his 'serious' tag with 'Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd', is all set to do his first typically filmi 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,' Kay Kay told IANS.

'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,' he added.

As for 'Honeymoon Travels', he said: 'Of course, I did comedy for the first time. But it isn't the making-faces kind of comedy that's in vogue these days. I can do that variety of in-your-face farce. But I wouldn't like to let it all hang out on screen.'

Kay Kay is now shooting for Anurag Basu's 'Metro'. 'It's a fascinating role and I'm cast opposite Shilpa Shetty and Kangana Ranaut. Though I haven't seen Anurag's 'Gangster', I've worked with him on television several years ago. I'm aware of his capabilities,' he said.

'Television back then offered the kind of challenges that have now come into vogue in cinema,' he added.

The actor is flattered by the 'thinking woman's sex symbol' tag that he has acquired after Madhur Bhandarkar's 'Corporate'.

'Better to be the thinking woman's sex symbol than the unthinking woman's,' he quipped. 'I enjoyed the attention that I got post-'Corporate'. Suddenly I was seen in a different light. Which is good. But I'm not here to win any race. I'd rather walk briskly than run through my career.'

View Corporate Movie Stills Over the years Kay Kay has learnt his Bollywood lessons well. '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. I also find it emotionally and physically liberating to play games like cricket and badminton.

'Some people spend so much time dreaming of their own perfect world that they forget to live their dreams. I'd rather live my dreams, no matter how incomplete they are,' the actor added.
