Fashionista Freida Pinto Likely to be Next Bond Girl


Agencies

London, Mar 14: Indian actress Freida Pinto is reportedly set to feature as the next Bond girl opposite British star Daniel Craig in a James Bond film. 

The actress, who received global acclaim for her role as Latika in Danny Boyle's multiple Oscar-winning film 'Slumdog Millionaire' was invited to a screen test for the spy film.

The Mumbai native is a strong favourite for the coveted role as reports suggest that executive producer Barbara Broccoli, who has earmarked Danny Boyle for the project, is keen to cast Pinto.

"Freida came to the attention of the Bond team when they were casting 'Quantum of Solace'. She was too young at the time to have a part as a love interest for a secret agent. But she has blossomed into an incredibly stunning young woman and would look perfect on Daniel Craig's arm," a source told British tabloid, the Sun.

"Danny Boyle is favourite to take the helm of the next movie, which would increase Freida's chances of a starring role," the source added.

Meanwhile, director Woody Allen has also signed her up for his new movie.

In the recent history of Indian cinema no other actress must have catapulted to the heights of fame as fast as Freida has done.

The "Latika" of the Oscar winning film 'Slumdog Millionaire' has already been successful in grabbing the number one spot of the Vogue magazine's 10 best-dressed people.

    C'mon gal get out there and do us proud, none of the Ms.World's etc. etc. did it but lets hope you do justice as the Bond gal. Sure, I can see from the other comments that the other girls competing with you are a little jealous of you. With the good comes a little bad. Ignore it, and achieve what no one else has achieved. Only remember to keep your feet on the ground while you scale those new heights.

    Even I am proud that an Indian girl like Frieda has gone to such heights. But those who feel proud that she is a Mangalorean, please remember Freida many not share the same feelings. This is what Mangalorean catholics who are 'born and brought up' in 'Bombay' do to their home town. They feel embarassed to associate with their home town, culture and people and would be comfortable talking about London and Newyork. A true star is one who despite being at the peak of fame accepts what he/she is and where she has come from.

    Dear readers/, In slumdog millianare movie frieda pinto has no much role, just she played as older latika, if u give part for any other girl also they will manage briliantly, only the movie got the award and A R Rahman, but not frieda, but do not still understand why people are so crazy about her and even hollywood producers or whoever, just not for the beauty just calculate the act as well.anybody can act like her, all the best those who her only she is the best, it is ur madness.

    Hope Ram Sene/ Bajran Dal don't destroy her house after she gets on to be the next Bond bombshell. They wouldn't be able to digest her skimpy wardrobe in the Bond flick. It would be totally against their 'desi' culture. Anyway, Frieda. GO GIRL !!!! Make us proud !!

    It's called Mangalorisation!!! Mangaloorikarana has reached beyond boundaries and limits! If Freida gets chance to become Bond girl, it would be a sensational news and issue for all - media, artists as well as youth of Mangalore and even for few organisations. Whatever, Frieda is lucky girl. Hope she will prove worthy for being famous so much.
