Actress Mouni Roy: I am getting used to new normal

Mouni-Roy

Actress Mouni Roy, who will soon be seen in the digital film, London Confidential, opposite Purab Kohli, says that lockdown taught her some of the greatest lessons in life.

The actress, who is currently in Dubai, told IANS: “I realised a few things during lockdown that we otherwise never get a chance to sit down and analyse. I have understood that, in reality we need very little to feel happy because happiness is there in the small things of life. At times we just gather a lot of stuff in our house for no reason. In normal life, we tend to engage ourselves in many things that are otherwise irrelevant! If we want, we actually can stay away from such things!”

“I have also realised that as human beings we will come across different emotions like anger and being upset, but it is also very easy to drop these negative emotions if we work on these. If we practice meditation and yoga, and not just read thought-provoking books but apply those thoughts in life. We can get rid of negative emotions. Looking at the bigger picture, we do not even know what actually we are running after! It is like an endless goal, but we do not know where it is heading!” she said.

The actress shot her new film with Purab in London just after the process of unlock started.

While the cast and crew of the film maintained social distancing, Mouni said initially there was a sense of tension on the set.

“There were several rules. We were using disinfectants time and again. Only one department could be present at the set . We were following all of it but in the beginning, there was tension because obviously we have never been used to such rules on a set. Eventually all these became normal. Since I have left Mumbai, I have done seven swab tests! But again, this is part of the new set of rules. I am getting used to the new normal,” shared the actress.

“London Confidential” is directed by Kanwal Sethi and produced by Mohit Chhabra and Ajay Rai.

The story by S. Hussain Zaidi revolves around the search of people from China who are involved in the spread of a virus.

On her character, Mouni said: “Uma, my character who is an R&AW official facing a challenge and racing against time to find the important evidence and a mole in her team. There is a backdrop of pandemic, and of how she cracks the information of another upcoming virus that can create another pandemic situation.”

The film also features Kulraj Randhawa, Sagar Arya, and Diljohn Singh among others and is slated to stream on Zee5.

 Anuradha Paudwal, who has given voice to several popular tracks like ‘Mujhe Neend Na Aaye’, ‘Dhak Dhak Karne Laga’ and many more shares an interesting anecdote from her recording days.

The renowned singer will appear as special guest on the reality show ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’. She goes down the memory lane after looking at contestant Anshika Chonkar’s performance on Anuradha Paudwal’s melodious song ‘Bahut Pyar Karte Hai’ from the movie ‘Saajan’.

Revealing an incident from the day of her recording, Anuradha Paudwal said: “Back in those days we used to record multiple songs in a day, so we always were in a motion and our voices were also prone to that. So, one day, while I went for the recording, I was told we would rehearse a bit before the final take of the song, and I agreed.”

“I still remember there were live musicians because it was supposed to be a live recording and I heard the song and went on to rehearse for it. And when it was done, I asked when we would be recording the final one, and to my surprise they said it was done. So, the scratch version of the song that I recorded thinking I was rehearsing, actually went on to be the final song for the film and I had no clue about it,” she added.

Vishal Dadlani, Shankar Mahadevan and Himesh Reshammiya are the judges on the singing reality show ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’. The show hosted by Aditya Narayan airs on Zee TV.

Ramya Krishnan had to step in to anchor the show in Kamal’s place for a week, after Kamal Haasan tested positive for Covid-19. The actor isolated himself and underwent treatment at the Sri Ramachandar Medical Centre in Porur from where he was discharged on Saturday.

As Deepika Padukone was spotted at the airport, it is reported that the ‘Piku’ actress has flown down to Hyderbad for Nag Ashwin’s upcoming movie ‘Project-K’. In her cropped lavender blazer-pant set, the actress was seen in a perky mood.

Sources reveal the actress is to participate in the first schedule of the upcoming movie in Hyderabad before she leaves for Mumbai. Deepika is to appear in Shakun Batra’s film, for which she is to begin dubbing as soon as she wraps up her present commitments.
