And, do you know? During the event, Mrunal made a surprising revelation about her career struggles.
Despite proving her acting prowess in a short span of time, Mrunal shared that she has had her fair share of struggles in the industry. In fact, she revealed that she once lost out on a movie to none other than global star Priyanka Chopra.
Here’s what the actress said
The film in question was ‘Jai Gangaajal’ which saw Priyanka Chopra Jonas in the lead role.
Mrunal shared that she had auditioned for the movie but unfortunately, she didn't get the part.
However, the actress had nothing but praise for Priyanka, saying that she loves her work and admires the actress.
Mrunal is optimistic about the incident
