Mumbai will always be home: Freida PintoMay 23rd, 2009 - 2:04 pm ICT by IANS
London, May 23 (IANS) While she is travelling all around the world and meeting famous people, Freida Pinto, heroine of the Oscar-winning film “Slumdog Millionaire”, feels Mumbai will always be her home.
“I don’t have a fixed address as I’m making movies all over the world. I’m filming in Israel at the moment and who knows after that, so I’m not making plans to buy my own place yet,” dailymail.co.uk quoted Freida as saying.
“Ultimately, Mumbai will always be home. That’s where my family is,” she added.
The 24-year-old actress is presently working on a film, “Miral”, in Israel and has also been signed by Woody Allen for an untitled film to be shot in London.
Freida, a model and a travel show presenter in India, said when she auditioned for Danny Boyle’s “Slumdog…”, she didn’t know that it would become such a big hit.
“I had no idea ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ would become such a huge success. In fact, when we were filming, none of us expected it, so the feeling of surprise and shock is still with me.”
“The film won eight Oscars and I was nominated for Best Supporting actress at the Baftas, and now, when I look back at photographs in magazines of me at the film awards I can still hardly believe it’s me,” she added.
