Riz Raizada (Kay Kay Menon):–

In a fantasy adventure, the character of the villain has a lot to do with the pitch of the story. The groundwork of creating the world of DRONA had a lot to do with Drona's nemesis - Riz Raizada.

In Riz, we wanted a lethal charm. We wanted a character, who symbolized everything that is attractive about evil. Riz had to be so charming, that a hint of his smile could kill you. Literally, when we were writing DRONA, Goldie asked me, what had scared me most when I was a child… and I remembered this one magician I had seen in a birthday party who would pull out rabbits from hats and make things disappear. His 'unnatural' skill really freaked me out. While he intended to amuse us, all he ended up doing was scaring the hell out of me. And that was that… We knew what Riz had to be.

While Riz was designed like a larger than life character, Kay Kay Menon brought a fourth dimension to the part. His rendition of Riz Raizada is so innovative and so opposite from what one would imagine of an evil character, that it makes Riz even more lethal.

Everyday, before the shoot, Kay Kay would sit down with us and discuss the scene and his dialogues to great detail. Once the meeting was over, I would gather a sense of how he would play the scene… But when he came on set, he brought a sense of unpredictability to his performance. An unpredictability, which made the character even more stunning. Not just that, Kay Kay would invent and innovate and surprise you again, with every take.

I remember this one time, when we were shooting the pre climax sequence in Bikaner. Kay Kay had to come very close and deliver a certain dialogue. At one point, when Goldie was happy with the shot and about to say 'Cut', Kay Kay continued speaking beyond the dialogues he was meant to speak. And suddenly, everyone stopped. His performance had become so real, that we were all sort of spooked out. Goldie even forgot to say 'cut', this time around. Seeing our expressions, Kay Kay just burst into laughter, but only we knew how terrified we were.

Kay Kay's performance is so intimate that he makes you feel as if, he is breathing down your neck as he speaks.
