Moviekoop digs : Mouni Roy bags John Abraham’s RAW: Romeo Akbar Walter
Talk about some exciting news! Mouni Roy and John Abraham in a film together. All details here!
Looks like there’s no looking back for TV actress Mouni Roy! After bagging her debut film Gold with Akshay Kumar and a pivotal role in Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s Brahmastra, Mouni is all set to share screen space with John Abraham in his next film, RAW: Romeo Akbar Walter.
Yes, Mumbai Mirror got in touch with the actress and she confirmed the news saying,
“I’ve given auditions in the past but this film just happened. I went for a meeting and the team instantly felt I suited the character as I have an oldworld vibe. They offered me the role and I immediately said ‘yes’. I wasn’t happy with the other offers I got around the time but I am excited about this film.”
Mouni can’t thank her stars enough for being considered in such big films. Expressing her gratitude, she added,
“I love John sir’s work. He has an intimidating personality but everyone says wonderful things about him. These days, I’m kind of numb. After facing the camera with Akshay sir, I’ve worked with Ranbir and Alia but am yet to shoot with Bachchan sir (Amitabh Bachchan who is also a part of Brahmastra). When I do, I will be so nervous I’ll probably hide in a corner (laughs). "
Director Grewal too informed how Mouni has a multi-layered role and it was her histrionics that got her onboard. Ajay Kapoor, who is one of the film’s producers alongside Dheeraj Wadhawan, Vanessa Walia, Gary Grewal and Bunty Walia further asserted, “She fits the part perfectly.”
We are so happy for Mouni! I mean, who would have thought the Naagin fame would bag so many big films, even before the release of her debut film? It’s indeed Mouni’s time to shine! Let’s see what more is in store for Mouni. Until then, tell us what do you think about her casting opposite John? Do you think she’ll be an apt choice?
RAW as the movie is being called will be shot in 60-days start-to-finish schedule in parts of Gujarat, Srinagar, and Nepal. The thriller flick is set against the backdrop of Indo-Pakistan War of 1971. It is said to be inspired by true events.
