Every dream can turn into a reality, only if we have the courage to pursue it. The former television actress, Mouni Roy’s journey to the big screen, has been filled with lots of love from her fans. After all, she has been a part of our screens for almost two decades. From her acting debut in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi (2000) to sharing the screen with Bollywood’s favourite khiladi, Akshay Kumar's in Gold (2018), the actress has definitely experienced it all.

In a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror, the Gold debutante answered the most asked question to every actress – ‘relationship status.’ To which Mouni replied, “People who matter know I’m single and it’s not about the shortage of time because you can compartmentalise your life. But I need to meet the right person, I can’t just pick someone and start dating. At the moment I’m grateful for this window (movies) that has opened in my life. I don’t think I should throw it away by not giving my 100 percent to it.”
Mouni has the most fun-filled television journey and she admits missing the small screen. The actress went on to praise her best friend and producer, Ekta Kapoor, and stated, “She’s given me everything. I owe my life to her. Naagin is as much my baby as Ekta’s. Now I feel like I’ve moved cities and feel a little lost. But everyone has their own journey.” (Also Read: Arbaaz Khan Confirms Dating Giorgia Amidst Arjun Kapoor-Malaika Arora's Wedding Rumours)
For those who don’t know, earlier, Mouni was rumoured to be in a relationship with Devon Ke Dev...Mahadev co-star, Mohit Raina. However, neither of the two ever accepted their relationship. In an interview with The Indian Express, Mohit had talked about his bond with Mouni, and had said, “We genuinely have a very strong friendship and utmost respect for each other. We are similar people with similar stories. Mouni and I, both are from non-filmy families and come from really small towns. She has her father’s blessing on her, who is no more and so is the case with me. We also have been working hard and achieving on our own. There’s a lot of factors that have brought us in a different place where we have immense mutual respect towards each other. As for me, I really have a lot of pride for what she is doing in her career and winning laurels for herself. Also, who wouldn’t want his name linked to a film actress, it always works in favour.”
Sadly, the couple parted ways in 2018 on a bitter note and when Mohit was asked about the reason of their breakup, he had said, “I have not spoken about my personal life earlier and I choose to maintain that. Please respect someone's privacy. All these unnecessary attentions gathering news takes over our credibility.” Mouni had also gone on record and has said, “I am single and have been so for a long time. Mohit and I are not even friends.” (Don't Miss: Esha Deol Posts Mirror-Selfie Of Radhya Takhtani-Ahana Deol, Says They're Her 'Most Favourite Girls')
