Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pintos saucy secret past revealedJanuary 18th, 2009 - 12:34 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 18 (ANI): Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto has a sizzling past as one of Indias hottest models.
The 25-year-old from Mumbai 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)
