Mouni Roy is gearing up for the release of her debut film ‘Gold,’ which will be releasing on 15th August. In the film, she is paired opposite Akshay Kumar and she will be playing the role of his onscreen wife. Roy has been going out and about with the promotions of the film and enjoying it as well. The star became a household name with the show ‘Naagin,’ where she played Shivanya and Shivangi for two seasons respectively.
Before making her Bollywood debut, several reports started making the rounds about superstar Salman Khan giving Roy her first break, reports Pinkvilla.  She dismissed the reports by stating, “You should actually pose this question to Ritesh (Sidhwani, producer of Gold). Salman Khan has had no role to play in my Bollywood debut; I don’t know how these reports emerged and I wonder why anybody would do that for me. Is it so unbelievable that after acting for 10 years and being a Bengali, I can’t land a Bengali character’s role by myself? It was hurtful.”
Roy further said, “How could such false news do the rounds? What hurt me was that the media gave me no credibility as an actor. It was my moment, but they took it away from me. Also, if I talk about this, it will look like I am using Salman sir’s name for publicity, and I don’t want to do that. He is someone I love and respect immensely. I have been his fan since I was a little girl, and I used to collect his posters and pictures. So, I don’t want to just take his name, but now that this has come up, let me clarify that I have not got a single call from Salman Khan’s production house for any role.”
When asked about being a part of ‘Dabangg 3,’ Roy replied, “No, I haven’t received a call for any film.”
