They always asked for 40-days at a stretch and TV did not allow me to dedicate that. Apart from the subject, the fresh pairing has also got people talking. Ronit would always make fun that he was caught up between two sardaarnis.”

After a well-sketched cameo in 3 Idiots, many thought that Mona would move towards Bollywood and mint big money, but she continued to be choosy. I enjoy watching these gangster shows and would love to play one soon.”
Kehne Ko Humsafar Hai will start streaming from March 16 on video-on-demand platform ALTBalaji. I mean I want to even play a serial killer but would I want people to murder then, no (laughs). We shot for about 50 days together and every day was a new learning and unlearning experience. As for Gurdeep, we had really few scenes together and all of them were really intense ones. But I will soon begin shooting for a film in London, the details of which I cannot reveal now (laughs). For all the latest Entertainment News, download Indian Express App
© IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd After playing a spurned wife in Kya Huaa Tera Vaada, she would now be taking charge as the other woman in ALTBalaji’s Kehne Ko Humsafar Hai. Mona shared, “Every time I had a scene with Ronit, I would call him dada (brother in Bengali) and my director would go berserk saying he doesn’t want us to look like siblings (giggles). Ekta (Kapoor) had this vision of the other woman, who might not necessarily be the vamp. Unlike the negativity involved in Kya Huaa Tera Vaada, my character and the storyline are very real and believable,” averred the actor. It’s a work of fiction and purely for entertainment. I wouldn’t want anyone to indulge in an extra-marital affair. Also, when you have a great actor like Ronit, the chemistry comes out well and you enjoy shooting. “It’s a completely different approach to the situation. She is the best storyteller and I loved the script of the show. I am doing this for the first time but I wasn’t scared as I trust Ekta and took that leap of faith with her. My character Ananya is an independent woman, who has her morals, it’s just that she falls in love with a married man.”

When we asked her if the show justifies infidelity, Mona shared, “I don’t think we are trying to justify or convince anyone. Giving insight into her decision, she quipped, “I have indeed been selective and honestly, I also never had that much of time. Also, I am doing a play, so well my plate is quite full.”
Lastly, when we asked her what kind of web-shows keeps her hooked, the Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Season 1 winner shared, “I saw The Test Case and Romil and Juggal on ALT and found it quite addictive, and I was also hooked to Narcos on Netflix. Talking about her big web outing, Mona, in an exclusive chat with indianexpress.com, shared, “It’s the new thing that people are embracing graciously and with hardly anything to watch on TV, I am glad to be a part of the show.”
Stating that the show is not bold, the Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi star stated, “It’s a beautiful concept and I think the audience enjoys mature content equally. But on a serious note, I will never advocate infidelity as I feel people should only marry for the right reason so that they do not go out finding love.”

As we brought the subject of her earlier show, where she was the wife being abandoned by her husband for another woman, we wondered if she related or took inspiration from it. But I think we managed to pull it off well, thanks to the good writing and our director. But it’s a very different project, something that I have never done before. The series marks her debut in the digital space and will have her share screen space with Ronit Roy and Gurdeep Kohli.
