Mouni Roy was recently in the news after some media reports suggested that her friendship with TV actress Sanjeeda Shaikh was over. This was after two popular actors, once best friends, unfollowed each other on social media. But, not so long ago, the Bengali beauty was accused of leaving even Mukesh and Nita Ambani worried with her alleged tantrums. This was in March when she allegedly refused to follow the guidelines set by the Ambanis for their guests during the wedding of Shloka Mehta with Akash Ambani and allegedly threatened to cancel his performance.
Mouni, who shot to fame from her popular TV serials particularly Naagin, showing tnatrums at the wedding party of Asia’s richest family had left many shocked since the actress is not even a big name in Bollywood. According to several media reports, Mouni was angry by the Ambani family’s diktat to have every celebrity guest’s mobile phone disabled by sticking a security tag on it.
As part of the rule, celebrity guests of Akash Amabni’s wedding with Shloka Mehta were expected to hand over their phones to security guards so that they could tag them with stickers, thereby disabling them. According to one report, Mouni had allegedly refused to comply with the rule and threatened to walk out of the wedding. The same wedding was attended by almost every Bollywood A-lister and no one had dared to take on the Ambanis. And here was this actress, whose only claim to fame in the Hindi film industry was a nondescript role in Akshay Kumar-starrer Gold.
Mouni was hired by the Ambanis to perform on all four nights of the wedding celebration. The report said that the angry actress even threatened to not perform if her phone was disabled. “Mouni was not at all comfortable with her phone being locked, but, the condition was applicable to all the guests at the party and hence she had to agree to it,” the website quoted a source as saying.
Mouni had allegedly even removed the tag from her phone after she reached the green room. This reportedly set the alarm off, prompting the security guards to intervene. She agreed to put the sticker back only after a lot of persuasion by officials working for the Ambanis.
Mouni reportedly removed the sticker once again, eliciting an angry response from the officials. It was here that Mouni allegedly threatened to not perform at the wedding. However, since she had been made the full payment in advance, she had little option but to comply with the wedding rules.
On the work front, Mouni will next be seen in Brahmastra starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. She has also reportedly signed Dabangg 3 opposite Salman Khan.
