Actress Freida Pinto is sought after everywhere but at her home city, Mumbai. It’s been about two years since she witnessed a meteoric rise to international fame with the multiple Oscar winning movie Slumdog Millionaire, but there’s been a paucity of film offers from Bollywood.
“I have done no film in India so it is very hard for people to accept me as an actress. They don't really know who I am or they probably don't take me too seriously,” Pinto told New York Times in an interview.
Freida feels she doesn’t suit the requirements of a typical heroine in Bollywood films.
“I haven't been directly approached to do a Bollywood film. After Slumdog Millionaire I was given scripts to read but was not directly approached. I don't think I fit the bill,” she added.
