Confirmed: Mouni Roy comes on board for John Abraham starrer ‘RAW: Romeo Akbar Walter’
Yesterday we told you how there were speculations of TV actress Mouni Roy being considered for a role in John Abraham starrer ‘RAW: Romeo Akbar Walter’ and today the actress confirmed that she is indeed a part of this espionage thriller.
The actress told Mumbai Mirror, “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 old-world 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.”
Talking about working with John Abraham for the very first time she said, “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.” (Also Read:‘Gold’ Poster: Akshay Kumar’s intense avatar will fill your hearts with pride!)

Popular for her ‘Naagin’ role on television, Mouni Roy will be marking her silver screen with ‘Gold’ in which she will be starring opposite Akshay Kumar. Mouni is also a part of Ranbir Kapoor– Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Brahmastra’, a superhero fantasy flick helmed by Ayan Mukerji.
Well, things seem to be going great for Mouni and we are looking forward to seeing her in these big-budget films. Watch out this space for more.
Ranbir Kapoor: I suffer from anxiety issues after finishing a film
Mental illness is still not considered as a sickness and people shy away from discussion about it. No, when you suffer from some mental disease you are crazy or mad, it is as normal as a physical sickness. Our society is easily influenced by famous personalities and sometimes people also follow them blindly. So when Bollywood actors come in the open and talk about suffering from depression or any other mental illness, people become aware about it and somewhere start considering it as a serious problem.
Recently, Ranbir Kapoor, who is gearing up for the release of ‘Sanju’ has confessed that he is suffering from anxiety issues. Ranbir has been busy with the promotion of his upcoming film which is a biopic on Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt. He has been giving multiple interviews and has shared some fantastic stories about his life, personal and professional.

In one such interview with film critic Anupama Chopra before the release of ‘Sanju’, Ranbir shared about what he goes through before and after the release of the film. He said, “I suffer from anxiety issues after finishing a film and before the film hits theatres. It has happened with every one of my films.”
This is an important point to note for all those people who thought that the film industry is all about glam and fame. The harsh reality is, there is stress and pressure even here and the biggest of stars suffer from mental illness. In the past, Deepika Padukone, Ileana D’Cruz have also openly spoken about battling depression, and we are glad they did.
Ranbir’s upcoming film, ‘Sanju’ also stars Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Jim Sarbh, Karishma Tanna, Boman Irani and others. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani the film will release on June 29.

On the professional front, Dhanush is gearing up for two Tamil films. One is gangster drama ‘Vada Chennai’ and the other is ‘Maari 2’ which is scheduled to release by the year-end.
Dhanush had made his Bollywood debut with Aanand L Rai’s ‘Raanjhanaa’ opposite Sonam Kapoor and was last seen in R Balki’s satirical drama ‘Shamitabh‘ alongside Amitabh Bachchan. We wonder when the actor will be seen in a Hindi film again.
