Mouni Roy: 'Gold-en' breaks on silver screen

It is not surprising that the otherwise prolific TV mega-star, vivacious Mouni Roy has now signed four more movies after her debut movie ‘Gold’ released last year.

Yeh toh hona hi thaa! That’s because stunningly pretty Mouni was always ‘big-screen –heroine-material’ who patiently waited for over a decade to get her filmy break. One recalls often connecting with her at her mentor Ekta Kapoor’s star-studded private birthday parties many years ago, where, the ravishing Roy would shrug and optimistically say—‘my big time will also come’.

This year Mouni has three movie releases lined up including ‘Made In China’, ‘Brahmastra’ and of course ‘Romeo Akbar Walter’ (RAW) where the hunky John Abraham is her co-star. While other movie actors have ego-hang-ups over acting in TV shows, Mouni is proud of her memorable TV roles that she has played, be it in mytho ‘Mahadev’ or costume-drama ‘Naagin’.

“Out here in movie ‘RAW’, which is an espionage thriller, I play this bank employee, which is total contrast to my kaafi-loud bickering Bengali housewife role opposite Akshay Kumar in ‘Gold’ . But both are ‘period’ films,” smiles Mouni who was impressed by her macho co-star John’s chivalry and supportive nature during the shoots.

“There was a lot I could imbibe about dedication and improvising from Rajkummar Rao who plays my entrepreneur-hubby in this quirky comedy ‘Made In China’. But the crowning glory for me is, I am finally getting to co-star with the iconic legend Amitabh Bachchan in my upcoming movie ‘Brahmastra’ which is a fantasy-action-adventure. Someday, I hope to do a dance-centric musical mega-movie because I am a trained Kathak dancer,” Mouni asserts.

Is ‘showman’ Sanjay Leela Bhansali listening ?
