“More than anything, it is the physical difference during pregnancy that affected me when writing the script of Ustad Hotel. I started working ten days after my son’s birth and no one knows these things. People in my house would ask me to rest but I had to finish the script. And when you notice Ustad Hotel, the film begins with a pregnant woman and her dreams for a child. Anwar (Anwar Rasheed) had put it forward very beautifully; there is also a bit of dark comedy in that,” recalls Menon. 

Be it Bangalore Days or Wonder Women, the cast of Menon films are always a highlight. She reveals that she doesn’t narrate the story to her actors, and instead gives actors the script to read. “Story narration is a weak area for me. My script will be better than my narration and the film will be better than the script. So I give everyone my script. And most people here have seen my previous work and trust me. I have been really fortunate with actors. They have stood by my side and have shown interest in my process and that is very encouraging for me.”
