MUMBAI: Sanjay Mishra, who is making his debut as director with Hindi feature film Pranam-Walekum, has taken Giselli Monteiro in the lead.
Monteiro is playing the character of a nautankiwali in it. “The girl in my film is desi but has a mix of glamour and innocence, something that Giselli has. She is suited to this character,” said Mishra.
