Kingfisher calendar model Angela Jonsson says it would be a dream come true if she got her first break with Shah Rukh Khan or Salman Khan or Saif Ali Khan, but her priority will always be a good story while choosing a movie.

'Sharing screen space with superstars like Shah Rukh, Salman and Saif is a dream for any debutante, but for me a great story matters the most. In the past, I have seen movies like 'Shaitan' and 'Delhi Belly'. For me, both were interesting concepts and I would love to be part of movies that depict today's generation,' Angela told IANS.

Born in Chennai to an Icelandic father and Mangalorean mother, she won the 2011 Kingfisher Calendar Model Hunt and featured in the 2011 edition of the calendar.

It was reported that she had signed with director A.R. Murugadoss for 'Maalai Neram Mazhaithuli' and even started her shoot. However, the 21-year-old denies it saying that she is currently 'polishing my acting skills'.

'I met with the director, but I haven't signed the movie yet so there is no question of shooting the film. Meeting people is a wonderful and learning experience for me but I am not in a hurry to sign anything or everything without giving a second thought,' she said

'It's very important to make a good movie as there are many things to be taken care of. I want to train myself before entering the film industry and for that I am working on my acting, dance and diction skills,' she added.

The model is quite popular among designers and walked the ramp for the likes of Manish Malhotra, Vikram Phadnis, Tarun Tahiliani, Malini Ramani and Shantanu-Nikhil.

And she gives credits to the Kingfisher model hunt for her success.

'Last year I was one of the participants at the Kingfisher Calendar hunt and it was a fabulous experience. I learnt a lot and got the privilege to tour the world with best mentors. Winning the title paved the way to stardom,' she said.

This year she judged the Kingfisher Calendar Girl Hunt 2012, which came on NDTV Good Times, and says it was a bigger responsibility than being a contestant.

'This year the platform was the same but the role was different. I went there as a judge for one of the episodes. The girls this time were a little nervous as the competition was tougher. It was interesting to share advice with these girls and get their feedback. The only tip I gave to all of them was to work hard and try to give their best in whatever they do,' she said.
