When it comes to beautiful and talented Indian women in the acting industry these days, it seems that most of them have made a name for themselves on the acting scene, by appearing in Bollywood movie projects along the way. It is quite surprising then, that the beautiful and talented actress Freida Pinto has yet to actually make an appearance in a Bollywood movie, while enjoying a successful Hollywood career.
With that said though, there has been a lot of talk about Freida Pinto making her Bollywood movie debut in the near future and it seems that the actress would be interested. Freida has been talking about her love of cinema as a young girl and she has admitted that the Bollywood movie industry had a big influence on her while growing up.
Pinto explained, "It happened progressively and of course, it began by watching Bollywood blockbusters. My dad showed my sister and I lots of films from the 80s. Then at university, I discovered the director Satyajit Ray's work. My sister started watching films by Wong Kar-wai at home. I was also following a history class where we watched 'Citizen Kane' by Orson Welles, Jean Renoir's films, Alfred Hitchcock ... it was magical."
As far as her own acting career is concerned, Freida Pinto has a number of movie projects lined up for the coming years, including the likes of Mis-Fits, Desert Dancer, and The Effects of Blunt Force Trauma, but it is the upcoming Knight of Cups that we are most looking forward to seeing, when the movie finally hits the big screen.
Knight of Cups will see Freida Pinto sharing the big screen with a whole host of Hollywood names including Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Imogen Poots, Teresa Palmer, Cate Blanchett, Ben Kingsley, and Joe Manganiello, among others. Knight of Cups has been written and directed by Terrence Malick and is expected to open in 2015.
