Recently in an interview with an online portal, Mrunal made a surprising revelation. She said that her debut in the movies would have been Aamir Khan starrer Dangal. The actress was apparently shortlisted for auditions and workshops held for Dangal but couldn’t make it due to her TV commitments. She said, “I remember I was testing for Dangal and Mukesh Chhabra was casting for it. The role was so tough; it needed workshops. They were selecting girls from all over India and I made it to the top 20 or something. I remember I had to shoot for a Maha Episode for Holi for the show I was shooting for. I just couldn’t attend that particular session of the workshop and I missed out on the film.” Now that’s really sad, but this only shows that the girl is dedicated to work and a  thorough professional.

When I saw the original film I was bowled over by its passionate emotional journey. It felt like I had lived a full lifetime of experiences in those two plus hours. So deep was the affect of the film on me that I couldn’t get it out of my heart the whole night so I immediately watched it again the next day, I can’t wait for Hindi audiences to experience a similar impact.” Can’t wait for her next venture at the movies.
