Time and again, there have been rumors of Bollywood beauties like Aishwarya and Shilpa Shetty being considered for the role of the Bond girl, but finally the desi babe who gets this opportunity is none other than Freida Pinto, who will play the suave British secret agent’s love interest in the 23rd James Bond flick. This 23rd installment of James Bond movie is set in Afghanistan
The 24-year-old actress will be seen alongside Daniel Craig in this Sam Mendes direction. American actress Olivia Wilde is reportedly in talks to star as the second Bond girl.
As for Dev Patel, Freida’s beau, ‘It will be a typically glamorous and raunchy role and Dev has been joking to friends he is cool with seeing Freida rolling around with 007,’ said a source.
When the ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ girl Freida Pinto expressed her wish to work with Bollywood’s realistic moviemaker, Madhur Bhandarkar, the latter was so flattered with the lady’s desire that he said that he would “love to work with her”.
“I’m quite flattered to hear Freida wants to work with me. I think she is aware of my female-oriented cinema. She must have seen the performances that Tabu and Konkona Sen Sharma gave in Chandni Bar and Page 3. I’d love to work with Freida,” Bhandarkar said.
“Today, I’m at a stage where an actress of Freida’s international popularity singles me out. I guess I must’ve done something right in these 10 years as a director. Can you imagine the kind of potboilers I’d be making if my first film Trishakti had clicked?”
Reportedly, Miss Pinto had expressed this heartfelt desire of hers in an interview to the international press where she said that she would do a Bollywood film only if it was a Bhandarkar film.
Slumdog Millionaire actress Freida Pinto has come out and spoken for the first time about her friendship with co-star Dev Patel saying it has become stronger.
While she is travelling all around the world and meeting famous people, Freida Pinto, heroine of the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire, feels Mumbai will always be her home.
She may not be the prettiest actress, she may not have won the best actress award or may be the best newcomer award, but she definitely has something better than the rest of the bandwagon- she has the best piece of luck.
Talking about Freida Pinto, she is just one film old, but she has definitely made her presence felt in the world of glamour, be it on the national front or in the map of the world.
The reputed cosmetic brand, ‘L’oreal’ has chosen Freida to be the face of the cosmetic group L’Oreal Paris. With this she becomes the third Indian actress to be the face of the brand after Aishwarya Rai and Sonam Kapoor.
At present the actress is gearing up for her forthcoming project with Woody Allen, the shooting for which will begin in July this year. The film has top names like Anthony Hopkins, Antonio Banderes and Nicole Kidman.
“Slumdog Millionaire” star Freida Pinto appeared in the chart of world’s sexiest women for the first time in the British men’s lifestyle magazine FHM. Last month, Pinto was also voted among the top five Hollywood sexiest women by men’s magazine Details.
The latest addition to the linkup of Freida with ‘The Slumdog Millionaire’ co-star, Dev Patel, is that the couple was spotted kissing each other during a dinner date in Israel. Dev had reportedly flown to Israel to meet his lady love on the sets of her new movie ‘Miral’.
Since the time they appeared in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, Freida and Dev have sparked rumours of linkup. Even Anil Kapoor confirmed that something was going on between the two. He had said, “”When I meet them I feel there is something happening. (I think) this is the beginning of something exciting happening. They definitely make a great pair. Both of them look very good together.”
However, both the actors have always denied anything between them. On one hand the 24-year-old actress insisted “We’re not dating,” and on the other the 18-year-old Patel added, “No, we’re not seeing each other.”
Now, we have something to ask here. People don’t kiss each other on a dinner date if there is nothing going one, dear Freida and Dev, or do they??
The 24-year-old Indian beauty, Freida Pinto, surprised veryone when she made to the list of 19 most beautiful women contestants from all over the globe in a poll made by magazine ‘Vanity Fair’ defeating Hollywood superstars like Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman and our desi beauty Aishwarya Rai.
