Freida Pinto goes ‘desi’, again!

She will play an Indian girl in her next film, Trishna

It seems Freida Pinto is trying hard to prove her detractors wrong. The Slumdog Millionaire actor will finally be seen in an ‘Indian’ avatar in Trishna. She plays an autorickshaw driver’s daughter who falls in love with a rich man’s son. While she had played an Indian girl in her debut film, she then went on to play an American in Woody Allen’s film You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger and in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and a Palestinian in Miral. That didn’t go down well with a certain section of the media, who claimed she should do more ‘Indian’ roles. Poor Freida. Here she is, one Indian actor who has successfully crossed over to Hollywood and not stuck playing only Indian characters, and she is criticised for it. If she had been playing only Indian characters, she will be panned for not being able to go global. Oh, come on! If Antonio Banderas from Spain, Hugh Jackman from Australia, Charlize Theron from South Africa and Michelle Yeoh, a Malaysian actor from Hong Kong can play Americans, then why not Freida? Give the girl a break.
