Mouni revealed that she fumbled on the first word despite having memorized her lines. “I come from television and we are used to memorizing a lot of lines. The first day I was going to shoot with SRK, some ADs came to the room and said ‘please be well prepared and memorize all your lines’. I said ‘yeah, it’s under control’. I went on set and fumbled on the first word. Because I was having such an out-of-body experience like I am really shooting with Shah Rukh Khan,” said Mouni.She further shared that Ayan Mukerji was there, and he calmed her down.
Mouni essayed the role of the antagonist Junoon in the movie. The actress has been receiving positive reviews for her performance. Some are even calling her the surprise package of the movie.
