Bollywood beckons Freida Pinto
Tuesday, January 01, 2013 16:48 IST

Four years after making her big screen debut, sources say Freida Pinto has finally signed a Hindi film

Freida Pinto became an overnight sensation after her first film Slumdog Millionaire won a bevy of international awards, be it the BAFTAs or the Academy Awards.

The actress went on to star alongside Hollywood hottie James Franco and even inked a film with Woody Allen. But what remained on everyone's mind is when she would actually sign a Bollywood film.

Looks like Freida is gearing up for her first Bollywood film. And according to sources, filmmakers Vikramaditya Motwane and Navdeep Singh have been working on a script that they have offered to her.

A source says, `While her films abroad haven't really worked wonders for her career, she has managed to stay in the spotlight thanks to her immaculate dressing sense and her so-called exotic looks. But this film could change her fortunes.`

Earlier apparently, Shoojit Sircar had approached Freida for his upcoming John Abraham starrer. Our sources add that Motwane asked his friend Navdeep (Manorama Six Feet Under) to make a film for his production house. We hear that the film will be heroine-oriented and the script has been penned by Navdeep.


A source close to Freida says, `Both Vikram and Navdeep felt that Freida would suit the role. She has liked the script and will take a call soon.` While he doesn't deny the buzz, all that Navdeep says is, `It is too early to comment.`
