Actor Arjun Bijlani is happy with the way his good friend Mouni Roy’s career is shaping up in Bollywood. He reveals that two years back, he had predicted that Mouni would do films in Bollywood.

“I remember telling Mouni about my feeling that she is going to do films and she will do really well. But Mouni just laughed it off saying, ‘I don’t know... I don’t think so’. This conversation happened two years back and now my prediction has come true. I am really happy for her,” says Arjun, who has collaborated with Mouni in the supernatural TV show Naagin.

Mouni is a part of two Bollywood features — Gold starring Akshay Kumar, and Brahmastra, that also stars actors Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, and Alia Bhatt. Ask Arjun if he had a word with Mouni after his prediction came true and he adds, “Yes, I did, and we had a good laugh. Mouni is very talented and hard working. And I am not saying this because she is a dear friend. She has done well on TV, and now she will impress everyone in films, too,” adds the 35-year-old, who plays the strong-headed protagonist, Deep Raichand, in the ongoing show Ishq Mein Marjawan.
