Be it Sooraj Pancholi, Daisy Shah or girlfriend Iulia Vantur; Salman Khan has helped a lot of people out there to kick-off their career in Bollywood. The latest to join the bandwagon is Mouni Roy. Of course she is still going to make her Bollywood debut with Akshay Kumar’s Gold, but did you know, that it was Salman who insisted her to give auditions for the role? Mumbai Mirror quoted a source saying, “Salman made Daisy 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. 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.”
That Mouni Roy is going to be making her Bollywood debut with Akshay Kumar in Gold is not something that we are unaware of. But a lot of us were taken aback when we got to know that Mouni was actually going to be debuting with Akshay instead of Salman Khan. Because, if you go to see, it looked like Salman was mighty impressed with the 31- year – old actress’ work as she made quite a few appearances on his show Bigg Boss, where she promoted her TV show. So when Salman met her at his Panvel farmhouse, he was more than overwhelmed to see her sheer dedication towards her Bollywood aspirations and that’s when he decided to take up her cause.
