Actor Akshay Kumar on Thursday introduced his ‘wife Mrs. Monobina Das’ to his fans on Instagram with a caption, “Meet Mrs. Monobina Das, my wife.”
In the close-up portrait, actor Mouni Roy is seen posing for camera in a retro look. Attired in black and red vintage style saree and blouse, Mouni is seen sporting a rose in her hair.
And if you wondered why Akshay had chosen to introduce Mouni as his wife and not Twinkle Khanna, the answer lies in Khiladi Kumar’s next film Gold. Mouni, a popular TV actor is acting as Akshay’s wife in the film. Fans were quick to ask if Akshay meant Naagin in reference to Mouni’s popular TV character.
One user wrote, “Naagin.” Another asked, “What? If this is your wife in a movie then it’s fine.” “Beautifulll wife sir,” declared another fan of Akshay.
Earlier Akshay had introduced another key character from his next movie Gold. While posting the still of actor Sunny Kaushal (brother of Vicky Kaushal), he had written, “Iske sirf naam mein hi nahi, game mein bhi bohot Himmat hain! Meet Himmat Singh (Not only does his name include himmat- bravery- but he has been brave even in the game)”
Earlier he had introduced other characters from his film namely Kunal Kapoor, Vineet Singh and Amit Sadh. Gold is reported to have fictionalised India’s remarkable victory at the 1948 London Olympics. Akshay Kumar will be seen as a patriotic hockey player in the film. Curiously, India had won its first Olympic gold in 1948 after getting independence on 15 August 1947.
Directed by Reema Kagti, the film is set to release on 15 August this year.
