Well, Love Aaj Kal came in like a storm and created waves in the Bollywood film fraternity leaving no stones unturned. Love Aaj Kal had many aspects which left the audience to ponder. But one thing that left people lost in thought was the naïve Punjabi girl in the film who played or rather justified the role of Harleen.
If you thought its shocking that such an important cast was buried in the star cast, credits, promotions etc wait till you hear this. Her name is Giselle Monteiro who in real life is a Brazilian model is a fact difficult for the audiences to chew, especially after watching the film Love Aaj Kal. Giselle Monteiro has stunned everyone with her reel and real life alchemy. But wait, she ain’t the only one who is bathing in the spotlight. Jacqueline Fernandez, the Sri Lankan beauty pageant is on her way to fame as she will be essaying the character of Jasmine in Sujoy Ghosh’s forthcoming fantasy flick Aladin.
Jacqueline Fernandez already has her niche of fan following as she is a former Miss Sri Lankan. With her stunning look and svelte figure she has caught an eye of many Bollywood film makers. Aladin would be her debut film as an actress and since she is playing a pivotal role in the film, all eyes will be on her. We couldn’t have much of her in the Aladin promo. But her graceful smile and her body language surely speak up for her.
Where Jacqueline will be essaying Jasmine’s role, superstar Amitabh Bachhan will play genius the genie and Sanjay Dutt, the Ringmaster. Jacqueline will pair opposite Ritiesh Deshmukh who will play the central character of Aladin. With Ayesha Takia backing out from the role of Jasmine, Jacqueline filled the space with her presence.
Well, if you thought Giselle and Jacqueline are the only two damsels making a name for them then you can’t be further away from the truth as dizzyingly hot Mexican chic Barbara Mori is jet set to make her presence feel with her film Kites. Kites is already in the air as it is a high budget film starring Hrithik Roshan and Kangna Ranaut.
Bollywood has surely connected well with overseas audience as this seems to be the latest trend of Bollywood filmmakers. But the question that arises in our minds when we see all this is, does Bollywood actresses don’t have it anymore to get the audiences to the theatres? And if this is for things to come, then slowly and steadily our beloved Bollywood actresses will be far off from the silver screen.
But even before foreign actresses have appeared on the silver screen but failed to spell magic at the box office. Films such as Dil Jo Bhi Kahey and Out Of Control, Rog etc bombed at the box office. It will be interesting to see whether these heavenly beauties can do something different at the box office and prove worthy for the filmmakers. I guess Bollywood babes still have a lot to show and tell the Indian audiences….
