Pick any movie that Kay Kay Menon has been a part of—`Sarkar`, `Haider`, `Gulaal`, `Life in a Metro`, `Black Friday` or `Bheja Fry 2`—all these movies were successful both critically and commercially, and in every film Menon stole our hearts and the show with his brilliant acting and versatility. After delivering an enthralling performance in the 2017 war film `The Ghazi Attack`, actor Kay Kay Menon is back in action with a suspense thriller called `Vodka Diaries`. Kay Kay Menon is one of the most underrated actors, yet time and again this man has proved that he is, in reality, the dark horse of Bollywood.

Set in the backdrop of Manali, `Vodka Diaries` revolves around a club of the same name in snow-clad Manali where few mysterious murders take place. And Menon will be seen in a yet another challenging role of ACP Ashwini Dixit, who is given the responsibility to hunt down the murderer.The circumstances that Menon was thrown in and a mysterious woman, who constantly attacks Menon psychologically (with him dreaming about his own death), is intriguing enough to pull someone to the theatres to watch it.

Kay Kay Menon called debutant director Kushal Srivastava on several days at around midnight to discuss his scenes and imitated his character`s body language even when he was off camera. All praises for him, the director says, "I had heard that Kay Kay is a perfectionist, but I was really surprised and happy when I saw him being so involved. He would wear his costume and go around in the police jeep given to him even when he wasn`t shooting. He was always in character and would call me at weird hours to discuss his scenes. He was always open to suggestions and improvisations. Initially, he wasn`t sure about the script, eventually, he was all praises for it. We shot the film in just 20 days which he thinks are the best days of his professional life. `Vodka Diaries`, produced by K`Scope Entertainment Pvt.Ltd, Vishalraj Films, and Production Pvt.Ltd releases on January 19.

The snowy Manali valley, where the film is shot, makes the premise seem more chilly and the plot more sinister. Menon has multiple outbursts in the trailer itself, hinting at a psychologically and emotionally draining journey!
