There have been quite a few occasions over the years, that Hollywood actress Freida Pinto has been linked to the possibility of appearing in a Bollywood movie but it has still not happened yet. However, while some people have claimed that Freida has no interest in appearing in a Bollywood film, the actress has admitted that she would actually love to.
Pinto told PTI, "I want to work in Bollywood. I never said that I am not interested in working in the Indian film industry. I would love to work with a female Indian director. There were times when I liked the scripts but as I had already committed to other films in Hollywood, I could not do them. At other times the roles were not exciting or strong enough for me to take up."
As well as admitting that she is seriously interested in making her debut in a Bollywood movie, Freida Pinto also went on to talk about how she approaches filmmakers in Hollywood. Freida says that she does not go in to meetings with the fact that she is Indian at the forefront of her mind but rather goes in with the idea that she is an actress first and foremost.
Pinto added, "When I go to a filmmaker in Hollywood I don't present myself as someone who has come from some other country but I go there as an actress. When I choose a role, I look at it from the perspective of content rather than the fact that I am Indian and I should do specific kinds of roles. When it comes to work, I just think like an actor."
Freida Pinto has a number of projects coming out over the next few years and the one that we are most looking forward to seeing is Knight of Cups, which has been written and directed by Terrence Malick and is expected to open in 2015.
