Yes. There is nepotism in Bollywood. But not everyone is a byproduct of it. There are outsiders who have made it big only because they had the talent. And one of them is the television star, Mouni Roy.
Mouni gained immense popularity with her hit serials ‘Naagin’ and ‘Devon Ke Dev…Mahadev’. She is also a trained Kathak dancer and was a finalist in ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’ in 2014.
The actress is now making her Bollywood debut in Akshay Kumar’s ‘Gold’. This movie is based on the life of hockey player, Balbir Singh, a three-time Olympic gold champion.
In last few weeks, there were rumours that Mouni got the film because of Salman’s recommendation.
Now, the producers have dismissed all rumours and clarified that it was Mouni’s talent that won her the role.
