Mumbai: Actor Kay Kay Menon, who has portrayed a variety of characters in his over two decade-long journey in the Indian entertainment industry, will next be seen in “Sann Pachattar”, which will be based on the Emergency era in the country.
“The film is absolutely a visual and audio symphony. It is the first true political period thriller of Indian cinema. I am happy I am a part of this film and played the most layered and myriad character of my career till date,” Menon said in a statement.
“It took me nearly six months to get into the skin and psyche of the character and to get the crisis right,” he added.
“Sann Pachattar” will be directed by “Tamanchey” fame Navneet Behal.
“The Emergency period lasted from June 1975 to March 1977 and is one of the darkest period of Indian history. We learn true lessons of life only from history and I decided to make a film based on some unknown and uncovered events during the period of emergency,” Kabir Lovee, who is producing the film under his Pehle Aap Motion Pictures banner, said.
“It's a fun film and is entertaining and stimulating at the same time. Its not preachy and heavy like most films have been on the supposed unfortunate event. It is a very well balanced film and will teleport you instantly to the 1970s. It's sensible yet is entertaining and rambles us into a trip,” Lovee added.
