Brazilian chick Giselle Monteiro won hearts with her ethereal beauty right in her first film, Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal. Moving on, the actor played one of the leads in a youth-oriented flick Always Kabhi Kabhi directed by Roshan Abbas

Shahrukh Khan’s home production ‘Always Kabhi Kabhi’ is all set to hit theaters on 17th June (tomorrow) and the films promotion ios going on in full swing. But why is Shahrukh not to be seen anywhere during the promotional events???
The movie features Zoa Morani, Satyajeet Dube (new comers), Giselle Monteiro and Ali Fazal. Shahrukh Khan will be seen in an item song ‘Antenna’ which will not be used in the film.
Well, the reason why SRK is maintaining a low profile about his production is because he doesn’t want to steal the attention away from the young actors.
Roshan Abbas, the film’s director, says that Always Kabhi Kabhi is essentially a youth film. And though that doesn’t mean Shahrukh Khan has become ‘old’, his presence in the film would have tilted the balance away from the young actors.
“Let’s face it, if we have Shah Rukh in the film, he will automatically become the centre of all attention,” Abbas is quoted to have said.
When Giselle’s part was dubbed for the movie Love Aaj Kal, she might have hoped to lend her own voice to the dialogues of her second film, which is Always Kabhi Kabhi. But a grasp over Hindi isn’t easy to come by. So, Giselle’s dialogues are now being dubbed. And guess who is dubbing her voice? It’s Krishna ji! Now you must be wondering, who is this Krishna ji? Well, we thought you might not be able to recognise her real name so we mentioned the name of the character she played in Chak De India. Yes, you guessed it right!! Vibha Chibber, the TV actress, who played the role of an assistant coach in Chak De India has been chosen to dub for Giselle.
And he was lucky to get the opportunity – after playing a small role of Joy Lobo in Aamir Khan starrer “3 Idiots”, he is doing a pivotal role in SRK’s home production “Always Kabhi Kabhi”.
“To me, Aamir, Shar Rukh, Salman Khan are like trophies at the end of the race. We all are running to reach to them,” Ali, who doesn’t like comparing the two superstars, told IANS.
“It’s wrong to compare. I worked with them in different scenarios. Aamir Khan was in the film I was doing and Shah Rukh Khan is the producer of my film. As a producer, he played a brilliant role. He’s a thorough gentleman,” said the actor who shakes a leg with SRK in a song in “Always Kabhi Kabhi”.
“The little time we shot with him, we found him very professional. He made us feel like buddies. It takes three days to finish one song, he just took one day. He learnt the dance steps in one hour and he was ready,” he added.
“Always Kabhi Kabhi” happened before “3 Idiots” released, says Ali.
“I signed this movie before ‘3 Idiots’ was released. When I started working in this movie ‘3 Idiots’ was in it post-production,” said the actor, who is an engineering student and says playing a school boy was tough.
“For me, playing an older character is easier than playing a younger one. It’s very hard because there is a very thin line between the age group of 18, 20 or 23-year-old.
“You have seen Joy Lobo and if you see Sam, the character I play here, he is a very fun loving boy. But again he is a schoolboy and in tense moments it’s a very different how an 18-year-old would react or cry. You will see the difference from what I did in ‘3 Idiots’. It was definitely tough.”
Apart from Ali, “Always Kabhi Kabhi” will launch two new faces – Zoa Morani and Satyajeet Dubey. This is television host and radio jockey Roshan Abbas’s directorial debut. “Love Aaj Kal” fame Giselle Monteiro also stars in it.
Set in a school, “Always Kabhi Kabhi” is about four youngsters trying to compete with pressure of growing up and many firsts that everyone experiences in high school.
Playing a lead role was much of a responsibility for Ali who discovered his acting talent during school days. He was a basketball player but after an accident, he shifted to theatre.
“When I started doing plays, I found a new side of me. Then I started exploring more about it. Every time I would do it, something new would come out. I did this role,” said the Doon School alumnus.
Ali feels that for any film, script is important. “Half of the job is done when you have a good story. Follow your punctuation marks and half of your acting is done.”
The movie explores life in high school and the joys and anxiety youngsters go through in their most formative years. It is slated to be released on June 17.
Based on the play Graffiti, which Abbas had written and directed back in 1999, Always, Kabhi Kabhi could spring a box office surprise.
The film stars four new faces. Here's a look at them.
Zoa Morani, daughter of Cineyug's Karim Morani, will make her acting debut here. Zoa has earlier worked as an assistant director in Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om.
The Moranis share a long bonding with Shah Rukh Khan, as they have been organising shows abroad.
It is reported that SRK is going the extra mile to ensue that the newbie doesn't get overexposed. He has banned her from making any public appearance for some time.
She played a naive and shy Punjabi kudi opposite Saif Ali Khan in Love Aaj Kal with elan.
Brazilian model Giselle Monteiro, 20, surely must have made her presence felt as the Badshah of Bollywood made the call many young girls would kill to receive.
Shah Rukh liked her performance in Love Aaj Kal so much that he recommended Giselle for the role in Always, Kabhi Kabhi.
After doing a cameo in Rajkumar Hirani's 3 Idiots as Joy Lobo, Ali Fazal has been roped in SRK's film.
Fazal plays one of the main lead opposite the Brazilian model Giselle Monteiro in the movie.
The movie has been extensively shot in Lucknow's La Martiniere Boys College, which is where the actor comes from. Apparently, Ali had the to lose 14 kilos to look like a schoolboy in the film.
Satyajeet Dubey has the perfect look to be the next chocolate boy hero.
In the movie, he will play a loveable geek, who will be paired opposite Zoa Morani.
Just 21 years old, Satyajeet is the nephew of famous theatre personality Pandit Satyadev Dubey and has been featured in a lot of television commercials before getting a break in television serials. He is best known for his role as Nanasaheb in Jhansi Ki Rani.
Coming from a theatre background, Satyajeet hails from a small town of Bilaspur, Chattisgarh.
