Giselli Monteiro open to Bollywood item songs

Mumbai: Brazilian model-actress Giselli Monteiro, who debuted with Imtiaz Ali`s `Love Aaj Kal`, says, she has no qualms doing item numbers, provided they are not vulgar.

"I have not set any limitations for myself. I have not made any list of do`s and dont`s. I am open to doing item songs if my character is required to do so. As far as exposing is concerned, it all depends on how much exposing I am asked to do. All I want is that it should not look cheap or vulgar," Giselli told reporters.

In her next, a Shah Rukh Khan home production, `Always Kabhie Kabhie`, based on the theme of high school life, Giselle plays a shy, demure teenager.

On her association with SRK, Giselli said, "I admire Shah Rukh. I really like him a lot. He is very sweet and a humble person. He just asked me how my Hindi classes are going
and who is my tutor," said the 22-year-old who has been taking Hindi classes to hone her language skills.

"I must confess that my Hindi is not that good at all.For `Love Aaj Kal` I had to compulsorily go to a diction tutor to improve my language. I am sure I will perfect the language some day," Giselli, who portrayed the role of a old-fashioned Punjabi girl, Harleen Kaur alongside Saif Ali Khan in her the 2009 film, said.

Directed by Roshan Abbas, and produced by Shahrukh Khan`s Red Chillies Entertainment `Always Kabhi Kabhi` is a story of four unique lives trying to compete with the pressures of growing up and the firsts we all experience in school from
crushes to classes to bunking to break-ups.

"I play the character of Aishwarya Dhawan in the film. I am not that outgoing...I am a sweet and nice girl," she said.

Giselle will be seen alongside producer Karim Morani`s daughter Zoa, Satyajit Dubey, a theatre artist and Ali Fazal, who played Joy Lobo in `3 Idiots`, in the film set to release
on June 17.
