Classy and Alluring Glamour of Freida Kaur Pinto

classy and alluring freida pinto, latika of slumdog millionaire

“After this success, I still consider myself to be a regular Mumbai girl. I’m just one that has been extremely blessed.” -Freida

Freida Pinto or better known as Latika (in her role in an award winning film “Slumdog Millionaire”), is a 24 year old daughter of a banker and a highschool principal. This darling with classy and alluring Indian beauty earned her bachelor’s degree in English at the St. Xavier’s College in Mumbai. After graduation from college she was recruited by the Elite model agency in India at age 20. In addition, Freida has then done campaigns for such companies as Chanel, Visa and eBay. In 2006-2007, she anchored the TV travel show Full Circle, and visited several Asian countries such as Afghanistan, Fiji, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. Meanwhile, Freida always knew she wanted to be an actress, professional or not. Though with the high standards of India’s response to Hollywood – Bollywood – it’s very difficult to get ahead. As Freida put it: “You have to be a child of an actor or actress, or have a godfather.”

But her one in a life time-chance came with Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire, which was to be filmed in the city of Mumbai, India. When Boyle saw Freida’s tape he immediately asked for her to come to the audition. But since she had no acting experience, they put her through an entire process of auditioning for six months.

Boyle followed his gut feeling and Freida was cast as Latika, the long-lost love interest of the movie’s main character, Jamal (played by the talented Dev Patel).“I put 23 years of research into this film, not knowing I was going to play this part”, Freida said. When Slumdog Millionaire premiered at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival in September 2008, the movie and its stars received rave reviews. Viewers have described the movie with words as “a masterpiece” and “one in a million”. And it truly is.

Not knowing what the future holds for her, Freida recently signed with one of the leading talent agencies in the world – CAA. She dreams of one day star be able to work with seasoned actors like Leonardo DiCaprio and Johnny Depp. “I think they are simply fantastic and so versatile. I would love to do a dark romantic film with Johnny Depp.” I think it’s safe to say that this rising star isn’t done yet.
