It was a starry affair at the GQ 100 Best Dressed event held in Juhu and the who’s who of the tinsel town graced the event all dressed to impressed. Post their formal commitments, it was time for them to unwind, after all it was a Saturday. So quite a few who marked their attendance at the GQ Awards, flocked to a suburban lounge close by, and were seen making merry with many other B-Town celebs. From Salman Khan, Sohail Khan, Bobby Deol to Mouni Roy, Kriti Sanon, Rajkummar Rao and Patralekha, several celebs were spotted making an entry.
Though Mouni Roy is busy with her Bollywood projects, Gold and Brahmastra, the small screen fans shouldn’t get disappointed. The actress is all set to make her web debut with Ekta Kapoor’s ALT Balaji’s web show, Mehrunissa. Recently, we shared with you pictures of the actress reading the scripts and having a session with the makers. As always the actress looked drop-dead gorgeous and obviously, her fans couldn’t wait to see her in the royal Mughal queen look. While our excitement is slowly building up, a post from Ekta left us wondering whether the show will be titled Mehrunissa or not.
Ekta took to Instagram to arrange a poll where she gave the fans two options to choose between – Mehrunissa and Noorejahan. For the uninitiated, Mehrunissa’s name got changed to Noor Jahan after her marriage. So she ran a poll wanting to know her audience’s preference. After some time, Ekta shared another picture and wrote, “Hey Noorejahan it is”[sic] So now, it seems she has changed the web series title to Noorejahan. With all this happening, everyone is surely excited to see Mouni make a dashing web debut. (Also Read: CONFIRMED! Mouni Roy to star in Ekta Kapoor’s Mehrunissa)
The talks of Mouni doing the web show started since January this year. And finally, it is rolling. Ekta and Mouni share a good rapport with each other and who can be better than Mouni, to bring back the Mughal queen on screen. Rumours are rife that Arjun Bijlani and Mohit Raina will also be a part of the show. Are you excited? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
Surbhi Jyoti impressed one and all with her debut show Qubool Hai. She proved that she was a versatile actress when she followed it up with Koi Laut Ke Aaya Hai that had her as a nervous lovestruck Geetanjali, who is on a quest to solve a mystery. Now, she is back with Naagin 3. The show is the most prestigious one on Indian Television, being the TRP topper for two consecutive seasons. In an EXCLUSIVE chat with Bollywood Life, Surbhi said, “I think the hardest part of doing the show was to convince myself about it. I have played realistic roles so far. Now, who does not want to work with Balaji Productions or Colors. They are the No.1 channel and production house. Everyone wants to work with them.” (Also Read: Naagin 3: Pearl V Puri joins Anita Hassanandani, Surbhi Jyoti and Karishma Tanna as the lead cast, read details)
Surbhi confesses that she was initially wary of the comparisons between her and the now iconic, Naagin Shivaanya played by the stunning Mouni Roy. “Yes, I was really confused because of the comparison and concept thing but then I realised whatever it is, it’s the numero uno show on Indian TV. And if I am being offered this show, I should take it as a compliment that people feel I can fit the part and it’s another feather in my cap,” she states. She further says that the comparisons do not bother her as Naagin is a huge brand in itself. “People are madly and absolutely in love with the serpents and Naagins. I can give my hundred per cent and the rest depends on the others. I feel that if I do my work honestly leaving no room for complaints, I can be assured for success,” she asserts.

When we asked Surbhi that people in urban India tend to look down upon Indian fantasy shows like Naagin while going gaga over Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, she stated, “Hollywood movies have huge budgets. They are much stronger on the technical side. We cannot run away from that reality. We have the plus point of having an audience that loves fantasy. We have grown up seeing movies on serpents and fairy tales. We cannot compare but can work towards own betterment.”
There’s a new kid on the block and he’s all set to make his debut with a bang in Akshay Kumar‘s upcoming film, Gold. 25-year-old Lakshya Kochhar started as an assistant director to Shujaat Saudagar for Rock On 2 and managed to bag his first role right after. Looking at the story and star cast of this film, we’re sure this is going to be one hell of a movie and we can’t wait to see what Lakshya brings to it.
When asked about the movie, Lakshya says he couldn’t have had a better debut than this one.
“It’s been an overwhelming experience working with Reema Ma’am and Akshay Sir. I could not have asked for a better debut than Gold. Having worked with Excel Entertainment before behind the camera, it feels great to be on the other side this time. I am sure the audiences will love the film and the storyline will touch the right chord.”
Just in case you guys wanted a good look at the newcomer in B-Town, we’ve gotcha some.
We also got our hands on a movie still from Gold! Can you spot Lakshya?
The movie is set to release on 15th August 2018 and showcases the true story of India’s first gold medal win in the Olympics after independence. The film also stars Mouni Roy, Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh, Vineet Kumar Singh and Sunny Kaushal.

Mouni Roy seems to be in the most exciting phase of her career. Her Bollywood debut project Gold is releasing in August 2018, she is a part of a big film like Brahmastra and there is a web-series also in her kitty, Mehrunissa. Today, some pictures have surfaced of Mouni from the first script-reading session of Mehrunissa. Dressed in a red and black outfit with her hair pulled back in a ponytail, Mouni looks like an attentive student revising before her exams. Mehrunissa is directed by Ken Ghosh who won lot of accolades for his great work in Haq Se. Mouni confirmed that she has begun work on Mehrunissa when she shared a picture on her Insta stories. The Naagin actress decided to opt out of the third season of the supernatural franchise as she wanted to give a chance to her Bollywood career.

The talks of her doing Mehrunissa began from January last year. When we asked her, she said that they were in talks and nothing was finalised. Buzz is that we may see Arjun Bijlani or Mohit Raina in this web show besides her. Talking about the title, Mehrunissa, we know it was the name of the Mughal Queen who was known for her administration, beauty and grace. There is no one better than Mouni to bring alive a Queen on the screen. The Naagin ctress shares a warm rapport with Ekta Kapoor who always visualised a web project with her. We may also see a spin to the tale of Mehrunissa and it might just be dark, bold and edgy. Stay tuned to BL for more scoop and updates!
While some prefer going for pastel shades in summer, for others, the season is all about bright hues. Vibrant colours like coral, tangerine, red, orange, yellow and others, are for a girl who has a sunny disposition, who won’t fail to flaunt them. Among them, yellow is a colour that screams for attention, oozes energy, joy and freshness. Fashion police suggests that yellow should be combined with primary colours and sported in the minimalistic ways. Not only this, yellow is considered to be one of the auspicious colours and forms a part of the traditions in Indian culture. You can not go wrong with this colour and our TV celebs are proof of it. Recently, Mouni Roy and Hina Khan flaunted ensembles in yellow and we couldn’t stop gushing over them. While one was in her traditional best, the other was slaying it in a chic look.
