This is not the first time that Rajiv Menon is entering Bollywood. Earlier, he had remade his Minsaara Kanavu as Sapnay in Hindi, which became an average grosser. Rajiv Menon is a multi-faceted personality who has even tried his hand in acting through the Malayalam film Harikrishnans which had Mammootty and Mohanlal in the lead roles. The film had him in a small but pivotal role by which the handsome director proved that he can also act. He has also wielded the camera for films like Mani Ratnam's Guru which had Abhishek Bachchan in the lead and the very famous Bombay.
