Mouni Roy may have cut off ties with Nawazuddin Siddiqui's project, Bole Chudiyan, but nothing has been able to stop the talented actress from putting herself out there and performing exceptionally well as far as her other projects are concerned. The actress is currently a part of Ayan Mukherji's go-getting film, Brahmastra, featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt as protagonists. According to rumors, the Naagin star plays a wicked role in the film, currently being filmed in Varanasi.
In regards to working with this Bollywood dream team Mouni says, "While I loved the role, I wondered why Ayan Mukerji had asked me to audition for Brahmastra. Maybe he saw me killing someone in Naagin with all that make-up and that body language. He perhaps may have thought that I can do something dark and negative as well. The role challenged me. I also looked forward to being on set with Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. We were shooting in a stadium in Bulgaria where I saw both of them together. They are such wonderful and giving co-actors. Kisine sach kaha hai – empty vessels make more noise, but these two are abundantly gifted and at ease with whomever they work with. This has been a common factor with my co-actors so far. They’ve ensured I give my best. I leave the rest to destiny."
Mouni's casting in the film has been generally received positively, as fans are eager to see the starlet take on more of the big screen after her stardom on the television.
In the past year, Mouni has already worked with Akshay Kumar, John Abraham and Ranbir Kapoor. In response to this she explains, "It’s extremely overwhelming to think that I am doing all this wonderful work. But this is my path. I’m here to entertain the audience. Yes, it’s taking time for things to sink in. I don’t know what is working in my favor other than my hard work and commitment to the job. When I read a script, I only seek a role that excites and challenges me. If it’s a great story, I don’t even mind doing something I’ve done before. I’m picking up work that resonates with me."
