Finally she was roped in to play an important part in the movie Always Kabhi Kabhi, directed by Roshan Abbas.

Furthermore he also used to coordinate with director on their part, who further made it perfect for all the new actors.
Recently after her second film, Giselli Monteiro has been heard of having signed a new hindi film named Pranam Walekum. It is a very challenging and perfromance oriented role of a nautanki (drama) girl. The director of her forth coming film states, “Giselli perfectly fits the character. Although the girl in my film is more of a traditional but she has to have a perfect mix of innocence and glam factor, something that she had”.
