I feel when you read a certain script that time it automatically attracts you towards it. I don’t analyze much before selecting a movie. I feel if you have an attraction towards a script then you go with the flow with the script”
“When I met Kushal (Director) that time I realized that he has the passion to make this film as his integrity was reflecting in the film’s script and other than that, we have great team which includes Mandira (Bedi) and Raima (Sen) so then I thought with this team, we can make a good film and that happened and according me, Kushal is going to make double century on his directorial debut”
Talking about his character in ‘Vodka Diaries’, Menon said, “I am playing character of Ashwini Dixit who is an ACP (Police Officer) investigating murders in his area. It is an interesting character so he goes through that journey to solve murder mystery in the film and there are many things in the subtext of that character as the film progresses”

I feel audience should give encouragement to such kind of different films so I would urge our audience that they should see good content which is good for their health as well. When you watch other kind of films and don’t get bored of that then I feel when you see a content driven film then it will be good for your mental and emotional health and I would like to add that please don’t keep your mind in home while watching the film because often people say such lines to escape from criticism so audience should carry their brain with themselves while watching this film”
