Ever since Slumdog Millionaire won world wide recognition in the form of Golden Globes, Baftas and the Oscars, the stars of the film, including Anil Kapoor and Freida Pinto are both lining up in what may seem as the quickest migration from Bollywood to Hollywood. The first to be bitten by the H-bug is the sexy Mumbaikar, Freida Pinto. Having won the hearts of many on the red carpets the world over, the sultry actress who is now linked with her Slumdog co-star Dev Patel is on the verge of signing her biggest date with fame. According to our sources from London
, the 24 year old actress was first spotted by producers during the casting for Quantum of Solace. Hollywood’s newest and the hottest property has arrived in the form of Pinto. What’s more, Slumdog director Danny Boyle is now being asked to direct the next Bond film staring Daniel Craig. Now if everything falls in place at the right time, Freida’s chances of staring along side the blonde Bond may just not look like a distant dream. Why? Because it’s Danny on the director’s chair who’ll may recommend Freida. Our sources from the U.K have confirmed, “Freida came to the attention of the Bond team when they were casting for Quantum of Solace. She was too young at the time to have a part as a love interest for a secret agent. But she has blossomed into an incredibly stunning young woman and would look perfect in Daniel’s arm.
Even the executive producer Barbara Broccoli is eager for her to join the cast.” India is already known in the cinema fraternity as the world’s biggest movie making country, then came along Satyajit Ray and Bhanu Athaiya who took the Oscars, followed by A.R Rahman and Resul Pookutty this year. Whether or not Freida will win an Oscar is a long dream but if she lands a role opposite Craig, it’ll be nothing short of an Oscar. That’s not it. Freida has also become London’s latest pin up girl. First it was Danny Boyle and now its actor director Woody Allen who has signed the Indian actress in his new untitled film, which also stars Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin and Sir Anthony Hopkins. After basking in the success of his latest film, Vicky Cristina Barcelona , Allen is keen on signing our Indian temptress who is now termed as Woody’s latest muse. The question is, will Freida Pinto attempt to conquer London after Woody’s last three movies that were shot in the capital – Match Point, Scoop and Cassandra’s Dream failed to live up to expectations? Will she be the lucky for Woody and Bond? Time, my friend, is a cruel mistress, and we can’t wait for the right time to arrive for this Indian beauty.
