In an interview featured in the latest issue of W Magazine, Freida Pinto opens up about Bollywood and her latest projects.
The 27-year-old actress rose to fame after starring in Danny Boyle’s ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, and expressed in the 5 minute interview how hard it was to play such a different role in new movie ‘Trishna’.
“It’s not just hard, it’s frustrating. Especially when you know you’re shooting nine hours of passiveness in the day, it does get really frustrating and it does affect you.’ She added, “It’s a great game of discipline.”
On Bollywood’s influence on her while growing up, “I danced to all Hindi song numbers growing up, they’re so embedded in us culturally that we cannot escape it.
Adding, “…but I have to have a mix of both: I have to have the feel good films and I need to have something that has social relevance.”
