Mouni Roy made her Bollywood debut with Reema Kagti-directed sports drama Gold. In an interview with IANS, Mouni said: "My transition to big screen happened very organically, but yes I do feel a loss because it was like leaving your home and entering a new territory as it was my first film, and there were a lot of personal struggles involved."
The Naagin fame actress further added: "While doing TV show Naagin, I performed at the IIFA (International Indian Film Academy). And I have done many award shows. So, I have many friends in the industry and knew almost everybody as I was a part of many reality shows. I have never felt that I am new to this industry. I have always felt welcomed and loved."

Despite playing the leading lady in Gold, critics have pointed out that Mouni's role had less screen time. On the same, Mouni said: "I think people liked me, and that's why they felt that my role is less in the film. I will consider it a backhanded compliment. If people didn't like my role or didn't notice me, then they would not have been talking about it. I feel if you like something, then you want more of it. So, I see this thing as a compliment."
The TV actress was also asked whether she will return to the small screen, Mouni said, "I have not left TV. Right now, I am just busy with films. But if time permits, definitely I will do TV shows."
Mouni Roy will be next seen in director Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra which also stars actors Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan. She will also be seen in Robbie Grewal's Romeo Akbar Walter (RAW) and Mikhil Musale's Made in China, along with Rajkummar Rao and Boman Irani.
