Mohit Raina and Naagin star Mouni Roy met on the sets of TV serial Mahadev. It is said that the stars started dating after their first meeting. Mohit and Mouni’s link-up rumours also started making buzz soon after that. It was also being said that the couple was planning to tie the knot.
In an interview with indianexpress.com, Mohit clarified that Mouni is only a good friend of him and said, ‘’I have always maintained that my personal and professional life is completely apart. As for Mouni, it is only the assumptions of people that we are dating. I have a lot of friends but not all are from the industry and you can say that the only close celeb friend I have is her. So, whenever we are spotted together or we post pictures of each other, everyone assumes that there’s something more but aisa kuch bhi nahi hai (there’s nothing between us). Mouni was a co-star who became a very close friend and continues to be so.”
Talking about his bonding with Mouni, he further said, “We genuinely have a very strong friendship and utmost respect for each other. We are similar people with similar stories. Mouni and I, both are from non-filmy families and come from really small towns. She has her father’s blessing on her, who is no more and so is the case with me. We also have been working hard and achieving on our own. There’s a lot of factors that have brought us in a different place where we have immense mutual respect towards each other. As for me, I really have a lot of pride for what she is doing in her career and winning laurels for herself. Also, who wouldn’t want his name linked to a film actress, it always works in favour (laughs).”
Mohit refuted all such link-rumours with Mouni and jokingly said that he is currently dating 20 sardars.
