Actor Kay Kay Menon is regretting his shoot in Indonesia thanks to some nasty local Sandflies who left the actor red and blue in quite the literal sense.
While shooting in Bitan, Indonesia for his forthcoming film BHEJA FRY 2, Kay Kay Menon happened to get bitten by sandflies, some local insects known to create a nuisance in that part of town.
Says a source, "While shooting in Bitan Kay Kay was relaxing post a shoot and suddenly got bitten by some insects - brushing it off as mosquitoes it was only the next morning that Kay Kay realized that his entire body was covered in red blotchy spots. Next thing you know bottles of antiseptic lotion were called for but nothing seemed to work."
That was when a local line producer on the film stepped in to save the day and recommended using "Autaan" a local sandfly repellant.
"A local line producer on BHEJA FRY 2 offered to help and got bottles of Autaan - a sandfly repellant and recommended its use. After this episode using the repellent became a staple on the sets," adds the source.
Produced by the dynamic Mukul Deora and directed by Sagar Ballery, BHEJA FRY 2 starring Kay Kay Menon, Minissha Lamba, Suresh Menon & Amol Gupte, releases on June 17th, 2011.
