Freida Pinto has defended herself again for following Hollywood rather than working her craft in Bollywood.
Pinto stated: “People don’t think I’ve done anything for India. The reason I’m doing these things outside my country is to be able to come back to India equipped with the knowledge and understanding of how to hopefully produce my own films one day.”
A Trade analyst, Amod Mehra has said Pinto will find it hard when she does decide to break Bollywood.
“Freida Pinto should have cashed in on Slumdog‘s success and signed a Bollywood film at that time, but she chose to do Hollywood.” said Mehra. “She is not a star in Bollywood, so she will have her fair share of struggle like any other newcomer.”
