Freida Pinto once dumped Bollywood role over strip demand by lusty helmerJanuary 18th, 2009 - 1:27 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 18 (ANI): Freida Pinto, who won over audiences across the globe with her performance in Slumdog Millionaire, has revealed that she once
turned down a Bollywood role after a lusty director demanded she strip off for a sex scene.
The 25-year-old from Mumbai was asked to bare all even though the director had no intention of including the shots in his finished movie.
Pinto has been one of Indias hottest models. She posed for sexy shoots when she was on the books of top agency Elite Model Management.
However, all the time she was dreaming of acting glory.
I remember harbouring dreams of being an actor since I was five years old, the Daily Star quoted her, as saying.
For someone like me with no godfather in the film industry it was easier to break into modelling. I did use modelling as a means to get into the film world.
I enjoyed modelling. It taught me a lot in terms of being confident and definitely helped me prepare for what was to come next, she added.
Pinto, who played Latika in Danny Boyles flick, also revealed that she plans to stay in Hollywood, rather than the Bollywood film industry.
Since I am just starting, I will keep myself flexible for roles, films and different film industries, she said.
But basically, I would like to focus on Hollywood because it gave me my first chance, she added. (ANI)
