Naagin actress Mouni Roy has bagged a role in Akshay Starrer Gold.
Salman Khan is known to provide launch pads for new faces in the Bollywood film industry.
From Katrina Kaif to Sooraj Pancholi, there is a list of stars who got a break in show business only because of 'Bhaijaan'. The latest one added to the list is none other than, popular television star Mouni Roy.
Mouni, who is all set to make her Bollywood debut in 'Gold', opposite Akshay Kumar, shot to fame with her TV show, 'Naagin' which went on to become the highest rated show of the time.
According to a report, Salman saw her spark when she made appearances to promote her show on 'Bigg Boss'. He liked her passion towards her work and felt she deserved more. When the actress met him at his Panvel farmhouse, she reportedly shared her ambitions, to which Salman ensured that she grabbed a role soon enough.
The report quoted a source saying, "Salman made Daisy Shah the lead actress in 'Jai Ho' and has launched the singing career of Iulia Vantur.
He has seen Mouni's work and felt she deserved a big Bollywood break. It is he who spoke to someone from the unit of 'Gold' and got her an audition. Of course, Mouni did well, subsequently bagging the part."
The Akshay Kumar starrer is based on India's first Olympic win as a free country.
Apart from Akshay and Mouni, the movie also stars Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh and Sunny Kaushal in the pivotal role.
