Both success and failure are shared by the team: Mouni Roy


Mouni Roy had been part of many hit TV shows but the success of Naagin, produced by Ekta Kapoor, changed the course of her career. The huge success of the show catapulted her into a different league. Mouni too didn’t fail to express her regard for that. After the second season of the show ended, last month, she posted a sweet note on Instagram thanking the entire team.
Talking about it, she says, “I don’t think a show or anything that requires creative inputs, and a collective effort is possible without a team. One person is never responsible for the success or failure of a project. Both success and failure are shared among the team members. Both seasons of Naagin have done so well and that is because of the team effort. Every single person - right from our director to the writers to the spot dada to the creative and production teams –are as involved and responsible for the show to be a hit as the actors.”
Shooting for a show, which is unlike a regular drama on television, is “extremely difficult and physically taxing,” says Mouni. She adds, “When I look back at both the seasons, it [the memories] seems vague. We had put in so many hours of work and towards the end, I even did 22 scenes in one day. Because I learn dialogues very well, they [the creative team] pile on more [work] on me (laughs). It was a demanding show but I also believe that there is no shortcut to hard work. And because costume changes, getting ready for the snake woman look, fighting, doing emotional or angry scenes require a good mount of physical energy, it exhausts you.”
Ask her about the next season of the fantasy fiction show and she replies, “I don’t know about that (laughs). I can’t comment on things I haven’t signed yet.” Mouni is currently busy shooting for her debut film Gold co-starring Akshay Kumar.
