Mumbai: Producer Ritesh Sidhwani refuted reports that TV actress Mouni Roy bagged a role in his upcoming production "Gold", starring Akshay Kumar, after her name was recommended by superstar Salman Khan. Produced by Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar under their banner Excel Entertainment, the project marks Mouni's big screen debut.

There were reports that it was Salman who suggested the team to take the "Naagin" actress in the film. Asked about the same, Sidhwani told reporters, "No, nothing like that. Nobody had to recommend. She is honest and very talented. "She actually gave a fantastic audition for the part and after that we chose her. We did a proper test and it was then that she got the part.

It wasn't based on any recommendation," Sidhwani said at the success party of his web series, "Inside Edge" here last evening. "Gold", directed by Reema Kagti, is about India's first Olympic medal win as a free nation in the year 1948 at Games of the XIV Olympiad, London.
