Reportedly, Menon was often skeptical about Bellary's direction. It is known fact that Kay Kay is a perfectionist. He had no issues with his character in the beginning, but as the film progressed, the actor's constant involvement and suggestions created a displeasure in the crew. Menon was very apprehensive about how Bheja Fry 2 would turn out to be.
Ballary admitted there were problems with Menon. He told Mid Day, "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. Moreover, he had to embrace the part of a suave tycoon that Rajat Kapoor had earlier played. Yes, there were issues. We shot in an atmosphere of mutual caution."
"My narrative style and the way I used the camera zapped him. Ranvir Shorey 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."
We just hope all is well between the two now.
