Mouni Roy on reactions to her performance in Brahmastra
Mouni Roy has received critical acclaim and praise from fans for her performance as the antagonist Junoon in Brahmastra, so much so that reviews also claimed that she stood out amongst her co-stars, including big names like Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, and Nagarjuna Akkineni. When asked if such a response overwhelmed her, she told Pinkvilla that she had in fact, not imagined it. She said, “I am the biggest Ranbir-Alia fan. Biggest! So, it was an opportunity for me. It was an absolute pleasure. It was so much fun working with the two of them. And no, I could not even imagine a thought like that and I just genuinely feel that both of them are fire on screen and great, humble, nice, kind, human beings on set. They are so dedicated that they wouldn’t leave the set. They would just be present on the set for all the rehearsals, for all the markings, and for all the lighting. So, when I have seen them like that and the kind of work that both of them have done in the film, I feel like they are magic together! So you are asking the wrong person.”
