Each role she has undertaken has left an indelible mark on the audience, showcasing her ability to adapt to different genres and narratives with great aplomb. Let’s take a look:

Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin

Mona Singh became a household name with her portrayal of Jasmeet Walia, popularly known as Jassi. The show was a major breakthrough in Indian television, and Mona’s character was central to its success. Jassi, with her braces, glasses, and simple attire, defied conventional beauty standards and became an inspiration for many. Her transformation from a meek, awkward girl to a confident, successful woman resonated deeply with viewers.

Kya Hua Tera Vaada

In ‘Kya Hua Tera Vaada’, Mona took on the role of a wife. This character was vastly different from Jassi, as it revolved around the complexities of marriage, infidelity, and personal growth. Mona portrayed the pain, betrayal, and empowerment of a woman who navigates through her husband’s infidelity and the challenges of single motherhood. Her performance was lauded for its emotional depth and realism, proving her ability to handle intense characters.


‘Kafas’ saw Mona delve into a more intense and gripping narrative. Though the details of her character are less publicized, the project itself is known for its dark, psychological themes. Mona’s involvement in such a series underscores her willingness to explore complex, challenging roles that push her boundaries as an actress.

3 Idiots

In the blockbuster ‘3 Idiots,’ Mona played the role of Mona Sahastrabuddhe, the sister of a character played by Kareena Kapoor Khan. Her character added a personal, emotional dimension to the film, especially in the scenes involving her pregnancy and the complications that arise. Despite being a supporting role, Mona’s performance was memorable and added a heartfelt layer to the narrative.

Laal Singh Chaddha

Mona took on a pivotal role in ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, playing the mother of the titular character, Laal, portrayed by Aamir Khan. Her portrayal of a loving, supportive, and resilient mother was both touching and powerful. Mona’s ability to convey deep affection and strength in her character significantly contributed to the emotional core of the film, making her performance stand out.

Made In Heaven

In the critically-acclaimed web series ‘Made In Heaven’, Mona appeared in a guest role, but her impact was undeniable. The series, known for its sharp commentary on modern Indian society and the institution of marriage, provided the versatile actress with a platform to showcase her nuanced acting skills in a contemporary setting. Her role, though brief, was performed with the finesse and depth that have become her trademark.


Mona’s latest project, Munjya, a horror comedy that has been performing well at the box office, further cements her reputation as a versatile actress. Mona’s character proves to be a catalyst providing equal amount of thrill and laughter, and it speaks volumes about her ability to entertain audiences in a genre that she has not attempted before. ‘Munjya’ proves to be another feather in her cap, adding to the diverse array of characters she has brought to life over the years.
