Mrunal Thakur Career/ Films (2018–present)
In 2016, after quitting television, Thakur began filming for her first film—the international movie Love Sonia—which was completed by her in 2017. The release date of the film was pushed several times and was finally released on September 2018. Thakur’s role was that of Sonia, a village girl who brings to light the issue of global human trafficking. In preparation for the role, she stayed at a brothel near Kolkata to study the body language of prostitutes.
Despite high expectations, Love Sonia failed commercially and received mixed reviews from critics. However, Thakur’s role earned her positive reviews.
In 2019, Thakur made her Bollywood debut opposite Hrithik Roshan in Vikas Bahl and Anurag Kashyap’s joint production Super 30, which was based on the mathematician Anand Kumar (portrayed by Roshan in the film) and his program Super 30. In the film, Thakur portrayed the real-life character of Ritu Rashmi, Kumar’s love interest. Though several critics found her to be disappointed for her role, Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama mentioned her performance as “fantastic”.
Despite mixed critical reception, Super 30 was one of the highest-grossing Bollywood films of 2019, earning over ₹1.5 billion (US$22 million) in India and ₹2.08 billion (US$30 million) worldwide.
Later that year, Thakur was cast opposite John Abraham in Nikkhil Advani’s action thriller Batla House. It was based on the Batla House encounter case held on September 2008 and narrated the story of a police officer Sanjay Kumar (played by Abraham) who played a crucial role in the case.
Thakur played Nandita Kumar, a journalist and Sanjay’s wife. Her performance met with generally positive reviews from critics, and the film proved to be her second consecutive box office success, earning more than ₹1 billion (US$14 million) domestically.
Thakur will next appear in Baahubali: Before the Beginning, a Netflix spin-off of the Baahubali franchise, which completed principal photography in February 2019.
