The Slumdog Millionaire star has been crowned the Hottest Indian Chick in GQ magazine’s US edition. But is she really that fabulous?
We don’t have to get into the details how Frieda Pinto became the toast of Hollywood after her brief appearance in Danny Boyle’s Oscar winning film Slumdog Millionaire. Her rise to unbelievable stardom has even caught the fancy of our A-list B-town celebs. The dusky babe represents our cinema and our country at large whenever she makes a flashy red carpet appearance. This year, GQ magazine’s US edition has crowned Frieda the Hottest Indian Chick and this achievement has certainly raised many eyebrows in the local glamour industry.
When we have beauties like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan (who can easily be called the Hottest Indian Mom if not the Hottest Indian Chick), Kareena Kapoor (who can sizzle the screen with her style quotient), Katrina Kaif (who holds the potential to have the world hooked on to her kamariya with her sexy moves) and Priyanka Chopra (who is already an international pop singer and a spectacular diva), why does Frieda need to bag the coveted title from GQ? What exactly gives Frieda the international fame that she has?
BollywoodLife has been following the 27-year-old star’s public appearances faithfully. In our opinion, Frieda may not be as divine in her appearance as Aishwarya. But she certainly has that rare spunk that makes her the unconventional beauty the western world loves to ga ga over, and we Indians often tend to ignore. Her dusky, even complexion has certainly worked in Frieda’s favour, big time.
Many believe that the Slumdog Millionaire star is India’s answer to the stunning Halle Berry. Frieda has been extremely careful about what she wears on the red carpet and her style sense has never let the young star down. She also has cultivated a commanding body language and a fine pose that works best for fashion shoots. Her striking gaze, long dark hair and lean bod certainly make Frieda desirable cover material. All these favourable factors coupled with a photogenic face puts Frieda on the pedestal of the Hottest Indian Chick, largely for the western world.
