2018 indeed a year for Mouni Roy, she has signed two-three back-to-back Bollywood films. She will be doing her Bollywood debut opposite Akshay Kumar. Yes, the upcoming film of Akshay Kumar titled as Gold is the Bollywood debut of Mouni. In Gold, she is playing the role of Akshay Kumar aka Tapan’s feisty Bengali wife, Monobina.
Do you know Mouni dreamt of debuting with Salman Khan? Yes, earlier in an interview Mouni said, “You should actually pose this question to Ritesh (Sidhwani, producer of Gold). 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.”
As she is the huge fan of Salman Khan since childhood. Well, a video has been shared by the fan club on Twitter regarding the same. Have a look:

However, she regarding her Bollywood debut opposite Akshay Kumar in Gold said, “(It was) wonderful. He is so sincere in every shot. First of all I want to say that you feel so lucky to just stand in the same frame as him and every day on the film set, I have learnt something. I have immense love and respect for that man. I am so glad to be a part of the film.”
She shared her experience how she felt after seeing the poster of Gold, “I really got goosebumps when I saw the Gold poster. Not only that, the teaser that we released a few days back was also impactful. It invoked a lot of deskbhakti (patriotism) in me. It just feels great that I am a part of this project. I have kept my fingers crossed. I am waiting for August 15.”
