‘Gold’ actress Mouni Roy on relationship with Mohit Raina: We aren’t even friends


Mouni Roy is making headlines for her Bollywood debut. Mouni is all set to debut with Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘Gold’ which is all set to release in August. However, besides her professional commitments, her relationship with TV hunk Mohit Raina has also kept her in news quite often. But now, in a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror, Mouni has broke her silence by saying, “I am single and have been for a long time. Mohit (Raina) and I are not even friends.” Yes, she said that!

She was also seen gushing over Mohit’s look from 21 Sarfarosh: Saragarhi 1897. At the launch of his show, she talked about his look, “Look at him. He looks like a bear. Already he is so huge and on top of that all that hair. Imagine if he was wearing all black.”

Meanwhile, the reports of their breakup started doing rounds in many gossip columns last year when reportedly they had unfollowed each other on social media platforms. But Mouni’s comment on Mohit’s look from the show on Instagram makes it clear that they are following each other. The two worked together in ‘Devo Ke Dev Mahadev’ and reportedly fell in love. They were inseparable for the following few years, but they never admitted to the relationship.

Besides other things, Mouni also revealed Ekta Kapoor is her mentor and not Salman Khan, which is a perception of many in the film industry. “I love and respect Ekta ma’am and owe everything to her. I was a lost little girl when I came to Mumbai from Delhi and I can still go to her with any problem. She is completely selfless, never trying to hold me to Naagin but encouraging me to do what is good for my career. Balaji is my home and I can come back to it anytime,” said Mouni.
