Freida Pinto says no to Bollywood?
Actress Freida Pinto, who has already made her mark in Hollywood, has said that there are no plans for a Bollywood venture yet. The 32-year-old actress who rose to prominence with the 2008 British drama ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, her first appearance in a film, was discussing her latest international projects.
Post the Academy Award-winning film, Freida went on to work in more Hollywood films like ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’, ‘Desert Dancer’ and ‘Immortals’.
When asked about her upcoming projects and if she plans to venture into Bollywood as well, Freida said, "I am very excited for April. I have a mini-series that's coming out on Showtime, I don't know on what channel it'll be coming out in India but I super excited about it. It's very topical.
"When Bollywood happens, it will happen. You guys will be interviewing me then, whenever it will happen."
The actress, along with Ewan Gunn, Brand Ambassador, Diageo, was speaking at an event to celebrate International Scotch Day.
"I do love drinking with my dad but the person I enjoy with more is my sister. Because we get into these talks about whose Scotch is better. She naturally veers towards something which is more smoky, while I prefer the sweeter, mellow flavour."
Freida leaves from India tomorrow.
