Mouni Roy talks about returning to TV after 5 years

Mouni Roy is a popular face in the telly industry and she is one of those who has ventured towards the big screen too. Last seen in the film Velle, Roy is looking forward to the release of Brahmastra, which stars Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor as it is something really big for her career. In a conversation with BT she said, “I am working on interesting projects, and hopefully, they will be announced one after the other. I am looking forward to 2022.”

Interestingly, Mouni is also set to return to the small screen after five years as a judge on Dance India Dance Li’l Masters Season 5. The actress started her acting career with TV shows like Kyunki… Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Devon Ke Dev… Mahadev and catapulted to fame with the supernatural thriller, Naagin. Now that she will be back in the shoes of a dancing show judge, she says that she is super thrilled. She said, “I am excited and nervous because this is my maiden outing as a judge on a reality show. When I was offered Dance India Dance Li’l Masters, the first thing that crossed my mind was how graceful
Madhuri Dixit ma’am, Remo D’Souza sir, and Karan Johar sir were during my season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. We would
listen to them and follow their suggestions. So, I suddenly feel the responsibility, as I assume this new role and am extremely grateful for this opportunity.”

Mouni insists that she hasn’t quit TV. “I am a very proud TV actor. I didn’t quit TV, but it was just a matter of commitment. As an actor, I aspire to play versatile characters. However, a project on TV translates into a commitment for a year or two. Now, that’s something I had alienated myself from for a while. But becoming a part of this show feels just right. I love dancing and kids. When an opportunity like that comes your way, you don’t ask questions… you take it up (smiles),” she concludes.
