Kay Kay menon

Versatile actor Kay Kay Menon says he is ashamed that there is no cinema left and it's only about box office business and big numbers.

"I am ashamed that talent is not promoted, it's all about marketing. There is no cinema, it's only about Rs.100 crore (business)," said the 45-year-old who feels earning Rs.100 crore is "not a big deal". "I am ashamed of this Rs.100 crore game," he added.

Seen in different roles in successful films "Sarkar", Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd and "Life In A Metro" and critically acclaimed Gulaal", Kay Kay says he is not even "interested in understanding this game. For me, it is something else. Anything which is non-cinema, I am not interested in it".

A management graduate, Kay Kay's love for the craft of acting motivated him to join movies.

He only wants to stick to acting because "that is what I am good at. I am enjoying it. When I will be bored, I will shift to something else."

"I am living my life to the best of my ability. I don't do things that doesn't appeal to me. Finding cinema is a rare commodity, to find a good cinema is all the more difficult," he added.

Kay Kay is currently busy promoting "ABCD - Any body Can Dance", country's first 3D dance film starring a host of choreographers like Prabhu Deva and Ganesh Acharaya. It has been directed by dance director Remo Dsouza and is coming out Feb 15.

    i agree with him...there are a few every once in a while that is a worth while movie...it has good talent...good story...good music...like classic hindi movies...but more of the movies now days are all hype...its about fashion, how much skin the girls are willing to show and how raunchy they can get...or about how idiotic the plot lines are...talent is diminishing...for every one GOOD actor there are alwys 5 HORRID ones...movies are just not the same any more...

    I am sorry to say that I have not been watching any Bollywood movies for awhile! I must have seen a handful in the past 3 years! The reason is what Kay Kay says, there is no quality in the cinema! It is all about making money and the movies are below par most of the time!

    I recently saw "Talaash" with Aamir Khan and that was superb! That is the only Bollywood film I have seen in the past year! Before that it was Rockstar!
