Mouni Roy is on a career high! After her successful stints on the small screen, which made her a name and face to reckon with, the actress moved on to do films. She will be starring in Brahmastra with Ranbir Kapoor, in Gold with Akshay Kumar and is also said to be part of Dabangg 3 with Salman Khan. And now, the actress is all set to make her digital debut with one of the greatest love stories ever told. The actress has teamed up with director Ken Ghosh for a web series on Ekta Kapoor’s ALTBalaji and it is titled Mehrunissa.
Now, did that remind you of Alauddin Khilji’s (Ranveer Singh) wife Mehrunissa (Aditi Rao Hydari) from Padmaavat? Apart from the name, what is common between the series and the Bhansali film is that both are period love stories. Mouni’s digital debut has a historical connection and she will play the titular role of Mehrunissa aka Noor Jahan. The series will bring alive the love story of Salim and Mehrunissa (aka Jehangir and Noor Jahan).
Along with the concept of the show, what has us excited is that Ken is not new to the digital format, after having worked on successful and popular shows like Dev DD and Haq Se for ALTBalaji. The timeless love story will start rolling soon and more details about the other star cast and the premiere date are awaited. We are sure, that Mouni, who had fans hooked with her glamorous side on the small screen, will wow audience in this web series as well, which will see her in a royal avatar. The Naagin actress Mouni Roy is certainly going places and we cannot wait to see what she has in store for us in her upcoming films and her digital debut web series Mehrunissa.
