Mouni Roy to wait for meaty roles

Actress Mouni Roy, who struck gold at the box office with her maiden film ‘Gold’ last year, is now looking forward to three movie releases this year. She says they are diverse projects — something she didn’t expect so early on in her career.Mouni has been a part of showbiz since making her debut with TV show “Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi” in 2006.Excited about her upcoming slate, Mouni said in Mumbai: “‘RAW Romeo Akbar Walter’ is coming out on April 12. ‘Made in China’ will be out on August 30, and ‘Brahmastra’ will release sometime this year.”

While ‘RAW’ is an espionage thriller starring John Abraham, ‘Made In China’ is a comedy entertainer with Rajkummar Rao, and the big-ticket film ‘Brahmastra’ is a fantasy film from Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, and boasts of a star-led ensemble.It seems like 2019 is a good year for Mouni.”Hope so… I really hope so,” said the actress after she walked the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Summer/Resort 2019 ramp for designer Payal Singhal.


She said she isn’t allowed to talk about my characters too much. “But all I can say is they are very interesting films. All characters are very different from one another. So I really really feel happy to be a part of all these projects,” At LFW, Mouni on Friday took a confident walk in a classic lehenga choli ensemble from Singhal’s ‘Qo’shilish’ collection.

“I was very nervous, and was shaking before taking to the ramp. When I am on stage, I am a confident person, but I had no confidence before I got on the stage. But the designer said, just go ahead and romance with the camera.”Or her personal attire, she added “I pick clothes for style and comfort as well.”
