|Brazilian model Giselli Monteiro is back as a trendy school girl in Roshan Abbas’s Always Kabhi Kabhi. AKK is a Shah Rukh Khan production.
Yes, Giselle Monteiro, the Brazilian beauty who left everyone flummoxed with her incredibly convincing portrayal of a Punjabi girl in Love Aaj Kal, now stars in Shahrukh Khan’s production Always Kabhi Kabhi.
Giselle is here to stay, this beauty has since taken Hindi classes and is focused on making an impact in Bollywood. Considering her limitations with the language, she has decided to take it slow, work on one film at a time, and make the best of the opportunity.
AKK will see her play the sweet and shy school girl Aishwarya Dhawan in the film, and though Giselle can now speak more Hindi, she still has a limited number of dialogues in the film.
How Giselle Monteiro caught Shahrukh Khan’s eye!
The girl reveals that it was her performance in Love Aaj Kal that caught Shahrukh Khan’s eye. Consequently, she was roped in to play a pivotal role in Always Kabhi Kabhi, directed by Roshan Abbas.
"I was told by Roshan that Shah Rukh spotted me in Love Aaj Kal and wanted me for the film." reveals Giselle
Giselle adds that Shahrukh guided the film’s actors throughout the making of the film.
"Right through the making of the film, he had suggestions for us. However, he used to pass them on to Roshan, who further helped us with our scenes," said Giselle, adding, "I’m told that he wanted us to be natural and on our own than worry about what he thought of our performance."
‘Always Kabhi Kabhi’ is slated to release on June 17. The film also stars Zoa Morani, Ali Fazal and Satyajeet Dube.
