Famous Serbian filmmaker Emir Kusturica, one of the few directors to win the Palme d’Or at Cannes twice, decided to make Jelena Jankovic’s wishes come true and find her a role in his next movie.
“Jelena is a phenomenal woman, and as far as I’m concerned, she can reckon that she already has a role. Feel free to tell her that I will find some role for her in my next movie. But, not only that, I promise that I will name the latest cherry juice I’m making here in my Timber Town after her and I will put her picture on the label. She has deserved it with her fantastic tennis performance, just as Novak Djokovic deserves to get a street named after him in my ethno village,” said Kusturica. (source: Mondo)
