Nobody Recognised Me In Mumbai Slums, Says Freida Pinto

London: On a recent charity visit to Mumbai's slums, actress Freida Pinto was left stunned - because nobody recognised her.

The Slumdog Millionaire star embarked on a trip to the rundown areas with a non-governmental organization (NGO) recently, but none of the residents recognised her from the movie and surrounded her boyfriend and co-star Dev Patel instead.

"People in the city recognise me as the girl from Slumdog Millionaire, and inevitably they stare. But when I visited the slums with an NGO, nobody recognised me at all. I didn't mind," the Daily Express quoted Pinto as telling the Sunday Times Magazine.

"As for Dev they hounded him, calling him a crorepati, which means millionaire," she added.
