In Brahmastra Part One: Shiva, Mouni Roy will play Junoon, a role that is as grim as it gets. The actor, who is characterised as evil energy, appears to be the film’s antagonist. Her motion poster was published, with the following description: Duty and Obsession. Creation and Destruction. Light and Dark. In our world of Light, we present to you the face of Darkness – Here is the mysterious, Junoon. Roy’s character was seen in her element in the recently released trailer of the film.
The big-budget fantasy adventure film by Ayan Mukerji is generating a lot of hype. The film is based on Indian mythology and stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy. After releasing multiple teasers featuring the major protagonists, the filmmakers have now released the trailer featuring Mouni Roy and the entire star cast. Roy was seen glowing in the dark preparing for an attack against the protagonist, Ranbir Kapoor.
Role Of Mouni Roy In Brahmastra
Mouni Roy says she was surprised to be cast as the major antagonist in Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s Brahmastra, and she wants to be varied in her career. The first instalment of the trilogy, Brahmastra, will star megastar Amitabh Bachchan. Working with the team, according to Mouni, has been a rewarding experience.
Junoon, played by Mouni Roy, has scary red eyes and a glare to match, as shown in the trailer. Brahmastra‘s directors have recently released posters for Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna’s roles in the film. Meanwhile, Ranbir Kapoor plays Shiva opposite Alia Bhatt’s Isha in the film.
“I am playing the main villain in the film. I am looking forward to it. What is more liberating for me is playing different characters that challenge me. I was surprised initially that they wanted me to play the villain,” said Mouni, who debuted in Akshay Kumar starrer Gold.

“Ayan Mukherji (director) had seen something from Naagin and felt I could play the villain. So you never know what clicks with whom. As an actor, you should be willing to experiment and be versatile otherwise you can’t learn and grow,” Mouni Roy who was also seen in Ekta Kapoor’s show Naagin said to PTI. She also appeared in Zara Nachke Dikha (2008), Pati Patni Aur Woh (2009), Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 7 (2014), Box Cricket League 2 (2016), and Lip Sing Battle as Meera in Life OK’s Junoon – Aisi Nafrat Toh Kaisa Ishq (2017). With her portrayal of Shivanya, a shape-shifting serpent in Colors TV’s supernatural drama Naagin 1 (2015–16), Roy became one of the highest-paid Hindi television actors.
