From the time netizens, Bollywood buffs and fans of Naagin star Mouni Roy learned that the talented beauty will be making her grand Bollywood debut opposite none other than Akshay Kumar in Excel Entertainment’s upcoming sports biographical drama, Gold, their excitement has known no limits. Additionally, speculations had been rife since then about a particular Salman Khan helping out Mouni to bag the part of Monobina Das (Roy’s character in Gold).
But, is there any truth those reports? Mouni says NOT AT ALL!
Speaking about the Tiger Zinda Hai star’s involvement in helping Miss Roy bagging the golden project, Mouni, in an interview recently, said that, “Salman Khan has had no role to play in my Bollywood debut; I don’t know how these reports emerged and I wonder why anybody would do that for me. Is it so unbelievable that after acting for 10 years and being a Bengali, I can’t land a Bengali character’s role by myself? It was hurtful.”
Additionally, Ritesh Sidhwanil, who has produced the upcoming Akshay Kumar-starrer with Farhan Akhtar, said that, “To be honest, no one recommended her. She is talented. It’s like taking away someone’s talent by saying that somebody recommended her,”
We agree, Mr. Sidhwani!
