Hindi movies are Brazilian model Moufid Aziz's aspiration. He is debuting in Bollywood with 'Rockstar' as an Indian and says he feels at home in the country and has no plans to go back.

After Giselle Monteiro, Moufid is another Brazilian discovery by director Imtiaz Ali.

"My plan of staying here was only for three months, but I could not leave because I liked it so much. India is home for me. I have no plans of going anywhere else. I do wish to get more Bollywood roles and I'm very glad to play an Indian in a movie," Moufid said.

The 32-year-old was born in Curitba, Brazil, to parents of Portuguese and Arabic heritage. A modelling assignment brought him to India in 2007, and now he doesn't want to go back.

"Since 2007 I have been staying mostly in India and my impression of the country is getting better every day because now I understand the culture better and I can see good changes in the country," said the hunk, who plays newcomer Nargis Fakhri's husband in 'Rockstar'.
