Brazilian beauty Giselli Monteiro, 22, who shot to fame with Imtiaz Ali’s
Love Aaj Kal
, got her second film,
Always Kabhi Kabhi
because of Shah Rukh Khan.
Directed by Roshan Abbas, the film is the first teen comedy from SRK’s production house Red Chillies Entertainment, and Giselli says she is dying to meet the actor to thank him.
“I was told by Roshan that Shah Rukh spotted me in
Love Aaj Kal
and wanted me for the film. I’m looking forward to meeting him to say a big thank you,” she says.
On SRK’s working ways, she says, “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 Giselli, adding, “I’m told that he wanted us to be natural and on our own than worry about what he thought of our performance.”
The actor says she and others were asked to closely study the body language of students for the role. “I was told to take a cue from teenagers around, on how to walk, talk and behave,” she says. The film is set to release on June 17.
