    Their Meeting In Panvel

    Mouni met Salman at his Panvel farm house along with another television actor and told him how serious she was about her career. He immediately agreed to take up her cause.

    Salman Felt Mouni Deserved A Big Bollywood Break

    The report quoted a source as saying, "Salman made Daisy Shah the lead actress in Jai Ho and has launched the singing career of Iulia Vantur. He has seen Mouni's work and felt she deserved a big Bollywood break."

    He Got Her An Audition

    The source further added, "It is he who spoke to someone from the unit of Gold and got her an audition. Of course, Mouni did well, subsequently bagging the part."

    Everything Happens For A Reason

    When Mouni was asked how she felt when she bagged the film, she told HT, "I couldn't be happier. I couldn't get luckier. It couldn't have been better. This is as good as it gets. I am so excited to be part of Gold, a film starring Akshay sir.

    I had auditioned and had been shortlisted for a lot of other films, but nothing worked out. I believe everything happens for a reason and I guess this was supposed to be my start."

    Will She Continue To Work On Television?

    To this, Mouni had said, "Of course. Like I said, TV has given me my life. I want to do films because I love cinema and love what I do. I want to explore what I can do in terms picking up a character and living it to the fullest in a film. But yes, TV has given me everything. I want to stick with good old soaps."

    While Mouni stole everyone's hearts on the small screen, will she be able to recreate a similar magic on celluloid? What do you folks think? Do let us know in the comments section below.
