Freida Pinto wants to move to Bollywood!

After staying away from Bollywood for three years, it seems the Slumdog Millionaire actor is now thinking of doing Hindi films. And we are not surprised!

Freida Pinto may be living in Santa Monica, shopping at Rodeo Drive, whiling away sultry nights at Sunset Boulevard and filming in the plush studios of Hollywood, but it seems the Slumdog Millionaire gal isn’t restricting herself to foreign shores. We hear the internationally-known Indian actor does dream of mouthing Hindi dialogues and fusing Kathakali steps with some salsa moves! The Mumbai born and bred actor said in a recent interview that she has a long list of Bollywood filmmakers she would like to work with. Hey, hold on! Yash Chopra and Karan Johar aren’t on her list. She isn’t dreaming of the typical song and dance, masala-laden drama. It’s only new-age, independent, gutsy, unconventional films for Freida, please. The kind of cinema made by Anurag Kashyap, Bejoy Nambiar, Vishal Bhardwaj and Nandita Das. And Konkona Sensharma if and when she decides to turn director. Perhaps Freida is slowly becoming aware that her dusky looks and unconventional demeanour suit these hatke Bollywood films better than the mainstream ones? While this makes good news for her Indian fans, we wonder why Freida, who so far has maintained her distance from Bollywood, is changing her mind? Is it because she is done with her Hollywood stint? Or the Woody Allens and Danny Boyles are no longer queuing up at her doorstep with interesting offers? If it isn’t any of the that, perhaps realisation has dawned upon her that when Spanish talents like Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek haven’t managed to step into the reigning shoes of America’s sweethearts Julia Roberts and Anne Hathaway, there is slim chance she will be able to do it! And so, a wise move would be to keep her options open and never say never!
