Freida Pinto Quotes
After six months of giving auditions for films, I got a call to audition for 'Slumdog Millionaire'. I thought this would be just another audition. But to my surprise, I was short-listed and finally selected.


I always wanted to get into acting. But it’s difficult in India. You have to be a child of an actor or actress, or have a godfather.


I think it's natural to want to become an actress after living in the city of stars and watching films all your life. After graduating from St Xavier's College, Mumbai, I modelled for two years.


The camera never gave me cold feet. I have always felt comfortable in front of it. When I gave my first shot for the film, I was a little scared. But then I gained confidence.
