Overrated: The glory and ‘shame’ of being Freida Pinto
Posted in Entertainment by shweta (#2) 289 days ago (firstpost.com)
Freida Pinto is everything that Indian cinema is not. Yet she is rated highly in the West having worked with well-known directors, including Woody Allen and now Michael Winterbottom in Trishna. She is on the cover of magazines like Esquire striking sexed up poses. She is dark (a sin in Bollywood) has daring cheekbones, not enough cleavage for an item number, and the girl-next door look is simply not acceptable here. Western directors call her a classic beauty.
