Mouni Roy and Akshay
Kumar are coming together to entertain you in a few days, as their film, Gold
hits theatres on Aug 15. However, during the shoot of the film, Akshay played a
lot of pranks on his heroine, Mouni Roy. One of them was when he portrayed to
be a BBC reporter and called Mouni for a phono-interview. Watch the video below
where Mouni sincerely answers all questions to this ‘fake’ reporter and then by
the end of the video, Akshay comes and tells Mouni the truth.
Well, once Mouni realises that she has been fooled, she loses her mind and starts screaming at the entire team for being extremely ‘mean’ to her.
Trailer of Gold is clearly inspirational. It may be recalled, Reema’s last venture Talaash was extremely appreciated. It was heart-warming to see Mouni given a good screen space in the trailer. Often it is seen that if the leading lady is a TV girl, she is not visible in the first trailer, at least.
Talking to a leading
daily a few days back, Akshay seemed extremely buoyant about this venture. The
Padman star had said, “Aaj se 200 saal pehle, hum kisi doosre desh ke National
Anthem ke liye khade hote the. Post 1947, when India became a free country,
things changed. In 1948, it was for the first time that India, as a free country,
played hockey at the Olympic Games hosted in England. Although it was the
British who introduced the game to us, in 1948, we went to England and defeated
them on their soil. They stood up for our National Anthem that was being played
on their land, and it was a glorious moment of pride for free India. This forms
the thrust of 'Gold', which is inspired by true incidents. At a time when there
are debates about whether one should really stand up when the National Anthem
plays in a cinema hall, and whether there should be any mandate on playing it,
Reema, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani (producers) brought a story to me
which highlights the importance of our National Anthem.”
To talk of the prank, Mouni, you should know the conditions of working with Mr Kumar- he always has a prank ready for his co-stars.
