The 'Slumdog Millionaire' hottie stars in her first mainstream big-budget film, 'Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes,' which released this week to rave reviews. After a string of cameos and supporting roles for several of our stars, finally a Desi girl takes center stage in a Hollywood flick!
Based on the original 'Planet Of The Apes' series, this movie will spawn its own series of sequels. Pinto stars opposite some big time Hollywood stars like James Franco, John Lithgow and Brian Cox in this film, and this is bound to give a well-deserved boost to her career.
This Mumbai babe has come a long way since her days modelling for local print ads. Since her extremely lucky break in the Oscar-winning 'Slumdog Millionaire,' her stock has steadily risen in the West--and even in the East. In just three short years, she's gone from being a nobody to a Hollywood leading lady!
Bollywood may have shrugged her off, but her true calling's in Hollywood. However, given her stardom, she might start getting her fair share of offers from B-town as well. For now though, Pinto has quite a few projects in the pipeline--most of them mainstream Hollywood, of course--where she stars opposite the likes of Micky Rourke and Antonio Banderas.
So, for being a class act who's made it to Hollywood all by herself, and for paving the way for future Indian actors and actresses in the West, Freida Pinto is our babe of the week!
