Boyfriend or not, Mouni Roy doesn’t shy away from embarrassing Mohit Raina at the slightest opportunity. The Naagin actor, while heaping praises on his new show, also decided to pull his leg for his rugged new look. She is not a fan.

The rumoured couple arrived together for the screening of his new Discovery Jeet show, Sarfarosh 21: Saragarhi 1897, in Mumbai on Monday. According to a report in India Today, when the gathered media asked Mouni what she thought about the show, she only had good things to say. “It’s a brilliant show. It’s looking very good. The locations are real,” she said.

However, she didn’t have similar things to say about Mohit’s look. “He is waiting to chop all this off. I am sure. Look at him... He looks like a bear. Like already he is so huge and on top of it all that hair. Imagine if he was wearing all black,” she said. Mohit could do nothing but laugh at her reaction.

Sarfarosh 21 is a fictional show inspired by the real-life story of 21 soldiers of the 36th Sikh regiment of the British Indian Army. They defended an army outpost at Saragarhi in the North-West Frontier Province against an onslaught by over 10,000 Pashtun and Orakzai tribes in September 1897.

It is a finite series of 65 episodes. The shooting is expected to be completed by the end of this month. The subject of Saragarhi has been in the news for quite some time, with actors Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn and Randeep Hooda planning films on it. Raina, who plays Havildar Ishar Singh in the show, hopes the team will have a first mover advantage. The series goes on air from February 12 on Discovery.

Mouni will soon make her big Bollywood debut opposite Akshay Kumar in Gold. It releases on August 15.
