Mouni Roy doesn't have an attitude problem, says Mohit
There is a general perception in TV industry that Mouni Roy, Sati of Life OK’s mythology show Devon Ke Dev Mahadev, has an attitude problem. Some sections of the media have complained about it as well. Even a female actor on set talked about the same on grounds of anonymity. But according to co-star Mohit Raina who plays Shiv, “She is a very sweet lady and a hard working actress. And as far as these rumours are concerned, I haven’t heard of them. But I guess she is misunderstood.”
He further informed us that in the current track where both of them are dancing together, Mouni has been helping him. “Since I could not get the moves right, Mouni spent extra time on sets a couple of days back,” says the actor. In fact, he is scared: “She is a trained classical dancer. I will have to raise the bar to match up to her steps which is scaring me to hell. Just yesterday, she waited till I could finally get my act together and also gave me some tips,” says Mohit.
When Tellychakkar.com asked Mouni about the same she smiled and said, “Mohit is being modest. It’s not that I went out of my way. He, himself, is a very good dancer and there is no big deal in helping out a colleague.”
Producer Nikhil Sinha (Triangle Film Company) says, “One of the main reasons why we chose Mouni was that she has the right balance of attitude and innocence, just what the character of Sati demands.”
In fact, Mouni’s perseverance to work also stood out yesterday (4 February 2012) when she broke her toe nail which intruded into her skin while rehearsals. However, she did not take a break. Poor thing was limping but she continued with her act with the same zest and élan.
