Kay Kay Menon turns stuntman (Snippets)June 19th, 2008 - 9:08 am ICT by IANS
New Delhi, June 19 (IANS) He has done serious roles. Now Kay Kay Menon seems to be fascinated by action roles. While shooting for his new film “Stoneman”, he decided to do his own stunt and jumped off a moving train. The scene required his character to jump on to a fast moving train and then jump off when it gained full speed.
As director Manish Gupta was sceptical about letting his lead actor attempt such a dangerous stunt, he had arranged for a stunt double to do the act. But Kay Kay was adamant.
Gupta gave in to his wish and the crew of the film waited with baited breath as the train hurtled ahead at full speed.
As Kay Kay leaped off the moving train, he safely landed on the ground, much to the thrill of the director, who got a perfect shot.
For Shweta Bharadwaj, skin cream paved the way to Bollywood.
