Mona has bagged her first film!!! SmileSmileSmile
 
 
'Jassi' Mona Singh bags role in '3 Idiots'

MUMBAI: 'Jassi' Mona Singh, who has just turned 27, has more than one reason to celebrate - the popular TV actress has just been signed by Rajkumar Hirani for a pivotal role in "3 Idiots".

Her track is totally different from Aamir Khan-Kareena Kapoor and also not featured  in Chetan Bhagat's novel.

"Yeah, I am doing Rajkumar Hirani's film. And I couldn't have hoped for a better birthday gift. What do I play? All I can tell you is, I don't play one of the idiots. I play the sayaani (wise) character, ha ha," Mona, who celebrated her birthday on Wednesday, said.

Mona, who became popular after playing an unattractive bespectacled secretary in "Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin", had to wait long for her movie debut.

"A couple of projects that were meant to happen never did. But I'm glad Rajkumar Hirani signed me. It's a fabulous role."

Meanwhile, Mona is enjoying her stint on television as a dancer on "Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena" where she partners cricketer Harbhajan Singh.

"In fact, Bhajji was one of the first to wish me on my birthday. We've become very  close buddies. I think it's the Punjabi connection. He has a reputation for being hotheaded. I've quite a temper myself. So we're fine with one another."

Mona has been guiding Bhajji with his dance steps. "I've almost become his choreographer. He completely depends on me to see me through."

This may be the last dance show for Mona in a while. 

And what about marriage to boyfriend Karan Oberoi?

"I don't want to get married right now. I think, I've just left 'Jassi...' behind. My career has just started."

Mona is still Jassi!

Winner of the reality dance show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, the Indian Ugly Betty Mona Singh is setting the dance floor on fire again.

She can currently be seen grooving with Harbhajan Singh on the dance reality show Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena (EKEH). Another dance reality show? "Well, yes you are right. EKEH is one more show of that kind, but still very different. Indians worship cricketers and dancing with Bhajji...I wouldn't miss that opportunity for the world," beams the actor, who describes herself as chilled out and someone who has no secrets to hide.

So, how was it dancing with him? "People had warned me that he is aggressive and hyper, but we did not have any issues with each other. We clicked instantly. Due to the common Punjabi background, we hit it off. We also realised that we had a lot of common friends in Amritsar," smiles Mona, who is popular to the people as Jassi.
How does she rate Bhajji as a dancer? "Oh, he is great. He has a natural rhythm. I used to be after his life to practise. I never used to allow him to go to the hotel. I have been quite bad to him that way." The buzz is that the Mona-Bhajji couple has won EKEH. We quiz her about it, and she says, "Yeah, that's what's been doing the rounds. But, the grand finale is yet to be shot. It will be done on either October 12 or 16. So, wait and watch," says she with a twinkle in her eye.

The bubbly actress believes that she will probably never be able to get out of the braces-and-geeky-specs image that had made her a household name. "Till today, people come up to me and ask me whether or not I am Jassi. I guess I will never be able to get rid of that tag, not that I mind it. Whatever I am today is all because of that character," confesses she.

What else is she up to besides the show? "You will see me hosting loads of corporate events, doing stage shows and world tours too," informs she. Any saas-bahu soap in the offing? "No way. I hate serials based on kitchen politics. They have extramarital affairs, they die and they come back," she says firmly.

We do not mind what show she decides to do as long as we can see her beautiful face smiling at us in our living room!

How did Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahi happen to you?
Mona Singh as Jassi (TOI Photo) More Pics


I was always interested in acting and wanted to try my luck in Mumbai. I gave a lot of auditions at various production houses and had Deeya and Tony in my list as Banegi Apni Baat was a popular show. So when I went to see them, the minute I entered their office I tripped, dropped all my portfolio pictures. I had a clumsy entry! And that's how Deeya spotted me. She asked me to rush to her room for a quick test...

What was your first reaction when you heard about the character?

The description of the character was a surprise to me and it set me thinking. I was not sure if I should accept such a role for an entry in this glam world where every one wants to look pretty and glam.

How difficult was it portraying the character of Jassi?

It was very difficult to get into the character of Jassi as I was into modelling and had done a few ads. For a for a person like me who loved looking good, dressing up all the time being suddenly asked to look ugly and wear ill-fitting clothes was difficult. But then I decided to take it up as a challenge.

Which international show did you have to refer to? And how much homework went into preparing for the role?

I watched the original tapes of the Spanish serial called Yo Soy Betty La Fea over and over again to get into the character. I was sleeping, eating, thinking, walking JASSI. I used to meet the creative team daily for rehearsals before the actual shoot started.

For almost two years you couldn't show your real face to the world.... how tough was that?

Something like this had never happened in the history of Indian
television where the public was not aware as to who the main
protagonist was and what she looked like. It was very difficult to hide my identity, but I was enjoying the concept almost felt like one of the comic characters like superman ' at home something else, and in public a different person.

What according to you clicked for Jassi...? And what do you think about Ugly Betty?

The basic theme of the show that a girl from a middle-class family having her family values, her faith in god and belief in herself, even though she was aware of her looks she never looked back or doubted her capabilities, could reach the top and eventually become the CEO of a fashion house. I don't follow the show Ugly Betty because I think our Indian version was the best.

After Jassi one hasn't seen you act in another serial...

After having achieved so much in my first serial and winning so many awards for three years continuously I chose not to be a part of the regular saas-bahu serials. Even now I am getting a lot of offers, but am waiting for a role as challenging as Jassi...

Singhs are King and Queen

< =text/> h3{ font-family: georgia, sans-serif; font-size:22px; font-weight:normal; color:#000000;

Harbhajan Singh and 'Jassi jaisi koi nahi' Mona Singh took home the trophy for winning the extra bling dancing reality TV show, Ek khiladi ek Haseena'.

Bhajji and Mona got the most points for their awesome Bhangra dance during the grand finale of the show. They had danced away to the infectiously catchy 'Nagaada Nagaada baja' from 'Jab we met' and had the crowd dazed and swooning.

The judges, cricketer Wasim Akram and actress Sushmita Sen were awestruck by Bhajji and Mona's performace. Both of them coming from a Sikh background helped matters a lot.

"Harbhajan has been a rockstar partner!" Mona said. In case you were living in a cave without a television set, 'Ek khiladi ek haseena' had six couples consisting of a cricketer and a TV actress each.

The other participants were S Sreesanth-Surveen Chawla, Nigaar Z Khan-Dinesh Karthik, Vinod Kambli-Shama Sikander, Nikhil Chopra-Barkha Bisht and Irfan Pathan-Ashima Bhalla.
For the grand finale, Harbhajan and Mona were competing against S Sreesanth-Surveen and Nigaar-Dinesh.

The winners, Mona and Harbhajan Singh were awarded a trophy and a cheque of Rs2,500,000. The win will obliterate all the controversies that surrounded Bhajji dancing as Ravana along with Mona played Sita.

Mona Singh (Jassi fame) is all smiles these days and why not? The girl is not only getting rave reviews about her performance with Harbhajan Singh on 'Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena' but has also got her big break with Raj Kumar Hirani signing her for a pivotal role in '3 Idiots'. Apparently, she has a track totally separate from the Aamir-Kareena one and also not featured in Chetan Bhagat's novel.

Mona confirmed the news saying, "Ya, I am doing Raj Kumar Hirani's film. And I couldn't have hoped for a better birthday gift. What do I play? All I can tell you is, I don't play one of the idiots. I play the sayaani (wise) character, ha ha."

Talking about her long wait to get a role on the bigger screen, Mona says, "A couple of projects that were meant to happen never did. But I'm glad Raju Hirani signed me. It's a fabulous role."

The Singh girl is all bowled over by Harbhajan Singh and says, "In fact Bhajji was one of the first to wish me on my birthday. We've become very close buddies. I think it's the Punjabi connection. He has a reputation for being hotheaded. I've quite a temper myself. So we're fine with one another." Mona has been guiding Bhajji with his dance steps. "I've almost become his choreographer. He completely depends on me to see me through."
