Freida Pinto says sex scenes in Bollywood are done to titillate randy directorsDecember 8th, 2008 - 5:19 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Dec 8 (ANI): Freida Pinto, the Indian actress who starred in Slumdog Millionaire, has revealed that sex scenes in Bollywood are usually shot just for the sake of randy directors, but are eventually edited from films.
In an interview to Complex magazine, Freida admitted that she almost fell victim to one lusty filmmaker, who attempted to convince her that a sex scene was a pivotal part of his movie.
However, she didnt succumb as she was aware of how such things work in Indian cinema.
“It’’s kind of taboo. It usually gets cut off at the censorship board level, so what’’s the point of having shot it? Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
She added: “Three or four years back I was auditioning for a film and I met this man who was like, ”We can be good friends,” with a twinkle in his eye. I knew where that was coming from and it didn”t feel right.”
However, Pinto has stressed that such incidents doesnt mean that she is averse to do sex scenes for Hollywood directors, when needed.
“It all depends on the director, what kind of work he’’s done in the past, she said. (ANI)
