Freida Pinto Refuses to Play in Bollywood Movie


Freida Pinto


Ruling out any all-singing, all-dancing Bollywood movie, Freida Pinto however said she would like to do an Indian-language film.

Indian actress Freida Pinto has ruled out starring in a Bollywood movie - because many of the films are "churned out" by producers with no quality control. Pinto shot to worldwide stardom with her role in 2008 movie "Slumdog Millionaire", playing the long lost friend of an impoverished youth from Mumbai who triumphs on a TV game show.

She has been offered several "stereotypical" roles for "a girl from India" since finding fame - but she's adamant she will avoid parts in all-singing, all-dancing Bollywood movies. Pinto tells Britain's Daily Telegraph Magazine, "I wouldn't want to do a Bollywood film per se, but I would like to do an Indian-language film. For some reason I think Bollywood has become synonymous with commercial cinema, which is song and dance and everything that is larger than life, and I am interested in the reality... It is great to have entertainment, but I think there needs to be something that also makes you want to go back and think about what you've seen."

"Mindless cinema is not my cup of tea... I could get into trouble for saying that. I don't think Bollywood is only mindless cinema, but a lot of films they churn out are not films that I completely enjoy watching. I say hats off to them for doing what they do, because it takes a lot of courage. It is easier to stand and deliver dialogue. Imagine dancing a song out and kind of expressing through it. I think it is a challenge and requires you to lose your inhibitions."
