Kay Kay Menon is back at the marquee to prove his powerhouse talent in Anurag Kashyap's Gulaal. A film on the political system, Gulaal releases on March 13.
Kay Kay talks to Rajul Hegde and tells her more about the film.
What is Gulaal about?
Gulaal is a socio-political film that mirrors the political system prevalent in the country today. There are certain values in the film like love, power, deceit, greed and politics. It is about the member of an erstwhile royal family who stakes claim to his land in Rajasthan and wants to return to the days of royalty. He wants Rajputana back from the Indian government and challenges the very idea of democracy. His history and his people back him but power corrupts him.
I play one of the protagonists called Dukey Bana, who masterminds a Rajputana movement in order to have a separate state ruled by Rajputs.
