Roja Kootam stars Srikanth and Bhumika Chawla, and is actually the debut film for Srikanth in the south Indian film industry. Bhardwaj composed and directed excellent music for Sasi's Tamil superhit.

In the Kannada remake, the lead romantic pair is played by Ajai Rao and Aindrita Ray. Though Aindrita Ray is an award-winning Kannada actress, she actually is a Bengali who grew up in Udaipur, Mumbai and Bangalore. She debuted as Nandini in Meravanige (Kannada, 2008) and her forthcoming Kannada and Telugu films include Sari Nee Ishtam and Januma Janumadallu. Aindrita won multiple awards for her spectacular performance as Devika in the 2009 Kannada film Manasaare opposite Diganth, directed by Yograj Bhat.

Romantic hero Ajai Rao created waves recently with his role in Krishnan Love Story.

The story-line of Manasina Maathu / Roja Kootam basically deals with a beautiful girl loved by a handsome guy who realizes his best friend is also in love with the girl. Additional complications are introduced by a super-protective mother of the girl who would go to any lengths to stop her daughter romancing the wrong guy.
