I’m flattered Freida wants to work with me: BhandarkarJune 2nd, 2009 - 1:30 pm ICT by IANS

Mumbai, June 2 (IANS) “Slumdog Millionaire” star Freida Pinto expressed a desire to work with Bollywood’s talented filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar’s film and the director says he is flattered and the he would “love to work with her”.
It all started when Freida in an interview to the international press said that she would do a Bollywood film only if it was a Bhandarkar film.
“I’m quite flattered to hear Freida wants to work with me. I think she is aware of my female-oriented cinema. She must have seen the performances that Tabu and Konkona Sen Sharma gave in ‘Chandni Bar’ and ‘Page 3′. I’d love to work with Freida,” Bhandarkar told IANS.
“Today, I’m at a stage where an actress of Freida’s international popularity singles me out. I guess I must’ve done something right in these 10 years as a director. Can you imagine the kind of potboilers I’d be making if my first film ‘Trishakti’ had clicked?”
Bhandarkar is currently busy shooting for “Jail” with Neil Nitin Mukesh and Mugdha Godse.
