Freida Takes On Bollywood

She’s one of the best-known Indian actresses in the world, but she’s yet to star in an Indian film until now.
Freida Pinto shot to fame four years ago when she was cast in Danny Boyle’s hit flick Slumdog Millionaire.
After catching the attention of several Hollywood directors and mainstream brands she went on to star in Rise of The Planet of The Apes, worked with American director Woody Allen and has modelled for L’Oreal.
So far she had shunned Bollywood in favour of international films, but this is set to change now that two Bollywood filmmakers have come forward to write a ‘female centric’ script just for her. Vikramaditya Motwane and Navdeep Singh have confirmed she is interested in the role, which could drastically change her career path, which some say is beginning to dip.

One expert recently said: ‘Her films abroad haven't really worked wonders for her career, she has managed to stay in the spotlight thanks to her immaculate dress sense and her so-called exotic looks. But this film could change her fortunes.'
Freida currently lives in Los Angeles with her partner Dev Patel, her co-star in Slumdog.
