Mumbai: The sequel to the popular comedy film ‘Bheja Fry’ is going to hit the theatres soon. But the cast and crew faced a lot of criticism from the perfection obsessed actor Kay Kay Menon.
Vinay Pathak, who was in the first part, shared a fabulous work rapport and chemistry with the director Sagar Ballary, but Menon was often doubtful of Ballary`s direction.
A source said to a daily, "From the start, Kay Kay, who is a perfectionist, had issues about with his character`s actions. As the film progressed, Kay Kay`s misgivings got worse.”
Adding more, the source said, “He`d frequently question Sagar on camera angles, placement and shots. Things came to a head when Sagar`s crew left for Indonesia to shoot on board a cruise ship. Kay Kay was horrified when he found that that a 30-day shoot was condensed into 12. He made his displeasure very clear. In fact, throughout the shooting, Kay Kay was apprehensive about how the film would turn out."
Ballary admitted to a daily there were problems with Menon. "You can`t blame him. He has never worked with a director as young and inexperienced as me. My only claim to fame was Bheja Fry, which everyone said was a ripoff of a foreign film.”
Ballary also admits that Menon had problems with his style of working, " My narrative style and the way I used the camera zapped him. Ranvir Shourey had reacted the same way during the first film. But last week, when Kay Kay saw the film, his apprehensions were washed away. He told he was very happy with the end result and admitted he was wrong in his apprehensions."
All`s well that ends well, we suppose.
