Actor Kay Kay Menon has essayed many memorable characters on screen — be it the DCP in Black Friday or an adulterous husband in Life In A Metro, an army officer in Shaurya or a small-time car thief in Sankat City.

The 44-year-old actor says he is quite content with his career, but does feel that filmmakers need to focus more on creativity than minting money. “I feel the Hindi film industry has lot of potential. But the makers need to focus on making good films than on money the film will make,” Menon says.

Talking about his experience of working with actors Naseeruddin Shah, Atul Kulkarni and Ravi Kissan in the recently-released Chaalis Chauraasi, Menon says “It was simply wonderful. I truely enjoyed shooting for the film and somehow it felt that it ended too soon. I bonded well with everyone. I enjoyed dancing in this film too. It is one of the highest points of my life.”

Talking about decade-long career, Menon says, “I won’t deny that my career has had its ups and downs. But I am glad that I have been able to do different kind of films… films that I believed in. I enjoy acting.”

Interestingly, Menon feels it’s not important for actors to be on social networking sites. “I don’t have Facebook or Twitter account. I don’t think it is required, especially for actors. I would rather spend my time on something more creative,” says Menon, whose upcoming projects are Life Ki Toh Lag Gayi and Enemmy.
