“I did not expect this. - Mouni Roy on audience reaction to her Brahmastra role

Actress Mouni Roy was last seen in Ayan Mukerji's fantasy drama 'Brahmastra' in which she played the role of main antagonist Junoon. In a film starring actors like Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna, Mouni managed to stand out with her amazing performance as the sinister villain. Although she has been receiving a lot of praises for her act, Mouni says that she didn't really expect her role to get so popular.

According to a recent report in ETimes, she stated, “I did not expect this reaction. Karan (Johar) Sir and Ayan (Mukerji, director) had already told me that I had a special role and that it will be a surprise package for people to see me in that avatar. As actors you can’t ever be 100 per cent sure about what you have done (in a film). There was always this doubt that people might find me outlandish in the garb. I did not know how my look and appearance in the film would resonate with people. But then the kind of reaction I got from my family, friends and viewers made me realise that people have loved to hate Junoon.”

Talking about what her family thought about 'Brahmastra', Mouni Roy said, "I was nervous when I went to see the film with them because they all are quite outspoken that way. But then in the intermission itself I received a hug from them and they told me they liked what I did in the film. Brahmastra will always be one of the most special films and scripts that I have been a part of and I couldn’t have asked for more.”
