Do you remember the eight Oscar-winning-movie Slumdog Millionaire?
Slumdog Millionaire is a 2008 British-Indian drama film directed by Danny Boyle. It was the film in which Freida Pinto gave her debut as Latika. People still remember her as a pretty lady dressed in a yellow dress and standing at the station.
Since then, there is no looking back for her as she attracted the audience with her outstanding performance. Generally, a stereotype that one initially needs to get acclaimed in their home country, and then must go to the next world silver screen, but Freida is a breaker. Although she is a lesser-known face on Indian silver screen, the actress is a famous face in the Hollywood.
Now, she has transformed over the years and her look now will blow your mind.
Born on 18th October, Pinto had a middle-class upbringing in the community of Malad, located in the northern part of Mumbai. According to the sources, in 2005, Pinto began her modeling career and joined Elite Model Management India, and she worked for two and a half years with them.
She was featured in several television and print advertisements for products such as Wrigley’s Chewing Gum, Škoda, Vodafone India, Airtel, Visa, eBay, and De Beers. It took her 6 months to get the role of Latika in Slumdog Millionaire.
In 2007, Pinto’s modeling agency selected her and six other models to audition for the female lead in Danny Boyle’s film Slumdog Millionaire after a request by its casting director. Following the success of Slumdog Millionaire, Pinto signed up for Woody Allen’s comedy-drama You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger.
In the same year, she was featured in “World’s Most Beautiful People”. In 2009, she was also included in Vogue’s list of the ‘Top Ten Most Stylish Women’. From Slumdog Millionaire to her next blockbuster, see how she has transformed. Her next blockbuster was Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
When she’s not on-screen, she’s killing it on the red carpet, where she is known for her changing looks. Like for the Toronto International Film Festival of You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, she went for rougher curls than she usually wears or her ’20s-inspired faux bob for the London premiere of Miral.’
It is Freida Pinto who has broken the stereotype by her thinking that anybody, anywhere in the world, all they want is to be free, to choose what they want to do without having someone tell them how to do it.
