Rimi Sen got Positive Response for Role in Munna Bhai MBBS but lost it to Gracy Singh
Rimi revealed that she auditioned for Swades and Munna Bhai MBBS but did not get the roles. “I had done a commercial with Ashutosh Gowariker, so I had a cordial relationship with him and hence I also auditioned for Swades. But later on, Gayatri Joshi got it. I had also auditioned for Munna Bhai MBBS and had even received a positive response also for it, but eventually, Gracy Singh played the part. So, there have been several such instances and opportunities that I have lost, but then such things are part and parcel of an actor’s life, one has to take it positively in their stride,” she added.
