After a successful television career, Mouni Roy is all set for her feature film debut with Gold.

Two months after the audition, I got a text from the casting representative saying I was shortlisted. Eventually, it worked out and I was very happy. I am a person of disbelief and confusion and nerves, so good news takes a lot of time to sink in.”
