Freida Pinto dumps her fianceFebruary 15th, 2009 - 11:07 am ICT by ANI
London, Feb 15 (ANI): Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto has dumped her fiance because she wants to concentrate on her career, it has been revealed.
According to friends, the 24-year-old has told Mumbai PR agent Rohan Antao that she could not be with him and be a world-renowned actress at the same time.
Pinto didnt want to get caught up in the regular routine life just when her career was taking off. So, she decided to call off the engagement, pal said.
During her meteoric rise to stardom, Pinto had kept Rohan a secret from the media.
Pals say that Rohan is devastated at losing the girl he thought he was marrying.
Its been a terrible time for him. One minute they were getting married, the next it was all over, News of the World quoted a close friend, as saying.
The couple met at St Xaviers College, Mumbai, where Freida studied English and Rohan chemistry.
Rohan then became boss of a small PR firm, and last year popped the question while the actress was filming the Oscar-nominated movie.
She posted photos of her engagement party on her Facebook web page but they have now been taken down.
For the last two months, Pinto has been promoting British director Danny Boyles flick around the UK and USAputting a strain on her relationship.
Freida realised she had been presented with an incredible opportunity but would not be able to make the most of it if she was tied down. She knew that she had to put acting first from now on, the pal said.
She and Rohan talked on the phone about finding a way to make it workbut her circumstances had changed so much they knew it wasnt to be, the pal added. (ANI)
