People in India donít take me too seriously: Freida Pinto
Itís been like almost two years since actress Freida pinto witnessed a tremendous rise to international fame with the Oscar winning movie Slumdog Millionaire, but no roles seem to be coming her way in home city, Mumbai. She is sought after everywhere but at her home city, Mumbai.
ďI have done no film in India so it is very hard for people to accept me as an actress. They donít really know who I am or they probably donít take me too seriously,Ē Pinto told New York Times in an interview.
Freida feels she is not that typical heroine who suit the requirements in Bollywood films.
ďI havenít been directly approached to do a Bollywood film. After Slumdog Millionaire I was given scripts to read but was not directly approached. I donít think I fit the bill,Ē she added.
ďHollywood definitely have accepted me much more willingly than in India. I am not famous in India. I donít get chased around,Ē she said.
The 25-year-old actress will soon be seen in films like You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger, Miral, Rise of the Apes and Immortals.
