Mouni Roy on living in the UAE for the last three months
The actress says she is "enjoying her stay" but is “dying to come back to India”
At the start of the coronavirus outbreak Mouni Roy moved in with her best friend in Abu Dhabi. Speaking to the Times of India the Naagin actress said, “I am enjoying my stay here, in the company of my friend, who I grew up with, and her family. However, I am missing my mother and brother, who are in Cooch Behar (West Bengal). I am dying to come back to India, but I haven’t finalised a return date yet.”
Although Mouni has been in the emirate for over three months she hasn’t been able to explore it at all. “My friend’s parents stay with her and also, she has two little boys. I don’t want to take any risks as far as their health is concerned, and prefer staying at home. I have stepped out only a couple of times, and that too, to buy groceries,” she explains. Although, recent Instagram photos show the actress relaxing at the Kempinski Dubai hotel.
Using her extra time to connect with her Bengali roots the actress has been getting to know her way around the kitchen. “I am learning to cook from my mother, and have been asking her for traditional Bengali recipes. There was a time when I hated entering the kitchen, but today, I am an expert cook. I can make Bengali egg curry, begun poshto, phool kopir dalna and Bengali soya bean. I have also taken to baking and made marble cake and banana bread,” she says.
