Mouni Roy is gearing up for the release of her upcoming film, Brahmastra. The film promises to see Mouni in one of her fiercest avatars yet, as evidenced by the trailer. The actress recently opened up about how she enjoyed playing larger than life roles, and how she wants to be a part of South Indian cinema as well.

According to a report in IANS, the actress opened up about the same in a ShareChat LIVE Audio Chatroom. Mouni talked about how she was very keen to be a part of South Indian films, saying that she was ‘dying’ to be a part of the larger than life films made in the industry. “I really think they are making some brilliant content”, she said.

The actress also spoke of her love for the iconic sitcom Friends, calling it her ‘go to show’, which she would watch to make herself feel better when she was too happy or sad. Mouni revealed that although she loved all the characters on the show, she considered herself to be a combination of Rachel and Phoebe, the characters played by Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow.

Meanwhile in Brahmastra, Mouni will essay the role of Junoon, the Queen of Darkness. In a social media post, the film’s director Ayan Mukerji had called Mouni the ‘surprise package’ in the film. The actress had initially been intended only for a ‘special appearance’ in the film, but the makers had been so impressed with her that they gave her a full fledged role. The director also added that she had ‘killed’ her part in the film as well.

Brahmāstra: Part One – Shiva, which also stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan, is slated to hit the silver screens on September 9, 2022. The film will be released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada.
