Yesterday, we reported a story stating that popular television actress Mouni Roy, who became a force to reckon with after the rapturous success of Ekta Kapoor’s supernatural fantasy drama series, Naagin, has signed a film opposite none other than John Abraham. Titled RAW, the film is a spy thriller ready to mount the floor in next couple of months.

Today, Mouni confirms joining hands with John, saying that she is extremely happy about signing the project. “I have given auditions in the past but this film just happened. I went for a meeting and the team instantly felt I suited the character as I have an old-world vibe. They offered me the role and I immediately said ‘yes’. I wasn’t happy with the other offers I got around the time but I am excited about this film,” she tells an Indian tabloid.

Besides RAW, Mouni is also playing important roles in Akshay Kumar’s Gold and Karan Johar’s Brahmastra, co-starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan. Talking about all her three projects, Roy says, “I love John sir’s work. He has an intimidating personality but everyone says wonderful things about him. These days, I’m kind of numb. After facing the camera with Akshay sir, I’ve worked with Ranbir and Alia but am yet to shoot with Bachchan sir. When I do, I will be so nervous I’ll probably hide in a corner.”
