Not many are aware that D’Silva was part of the early writing process of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Delhi 6. He says, “I was involved in the very initial stage then I moved out of the project as I did not have the time, after which it was re-written.”

Besides his directorial venture, he is also busy writing three screenplays; one for Mani Ratnam called Raavan, Soham Shah’s Luck, and a film for Arjun Rampal that he’s just finished writing. Apart from this, he has also penned the script of Hook Ya Crook.
