Mrunal Thakur, despite finding success in love stories like 'Sita Ramam' and 'Hi Nanna' in Telugu, expressed that she finds it difficult to come across similar roles in Hindi. Despite being widely recognized, and having played many romantic characters on-screen with so much ease, Thakur believes she doesn't often get the chance to take on romantic roles in Hindi cinema because of her belief of her not being 'popular enough.'

In a conversation with Pinkvilla, Mrunal Thakur explained why she does not bag romantic films in Hindi.

When asked if she would act in a romantic film in Bollywood, she exclaimed, "I don’t know, I am not popular enough to get a love story yet," adding, "Am I wrong? I have to be popular to get a love story, no? There are a lot of films being offered to me, but definitely not romantic movies. I would love to do that." She further stated that she's "just tired of proving to filmmakers now. I just want it to happen organically, I am done asking them."

While talking about her films, she claimed that many fans and followers had extended their thanks to her for 'bringing romance back.' She added, "We all grew up watching romantic movies and suddenly there were no films in the genre. Everyone pretends they don’t like romance but everyone watches it secretly. I am happy 'Hi Nanna' and 'Sita Ramam' shaped up the way they did. I hope to continue the magic, hopefully in another language. I was overwhelmed when I was called the queen of romance because Shah Rukh Khan is the king of romance."

On the work front, 2023 was a happening year for the actress. She was seen in 'Gumraah,' 'Lust Stories 2,' 'Aankh Mancholi' and 'Pippa,' and 'Hi Nanna.' She will next be seen in 'Family Star' opposite with Vijay Deverakonda.
