Harleen KaurWe wrote about Harleen Kaur in our last post on Love Aaj Kal. But it seems people are still googling who plays Harleen Kaur ? And almost every reviewer has mentioned her name or her character’s name. She may not have much to say but her look has worked and how!

It happens. Recently during the screening of Delhi-6, at the interval, I turned to my freind and asked, who is this Rama Bua ? Later on, got to know that all my friends and their million other friends also wanted to know the same. We googled, found out more and finally confirmed that she is happily married and is a delhi based dancer Aditi Rao Hydari!

Ok. So back to Harleen Kaur in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal. Believe it or not, she may look the coy desi girl with old world charm but she is not from India! Giselle Monteiro is a Brazilian model who has no clue about hindi and hindi films. She came to audition for the part of Saif’s other girlfriend. But was later on selected for the role of Harleen Kaur. Imtiaz Ali managed to make her act but her lines were dubbed. Strange are the ways of bollywood! But as long as Harleen Kaur looks Harleen Kaur, we arent complaining. Desi, firangi or from any other planet!
