Her debut with Danny Boyle’s ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ opened her doors for Hollywood and since then there has been no looking back forFreida Pinto. So busy is the girl these days that she has decided to give a miss to the prestigious 63rd Cannes International Film Festival which will commence on May 12.
Freida was set to walk the red carpet here along with her co-stars of ‘You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger’, directed by Woody Allen but since she is stuck up with the shooting of ‘Immortals’ in Canada, she will not be able to make it.
Meanwhile, Freida Pinto’s lover Dev Patel feels that Freida would be a definite treat if she gets an opportunity to play the Bond girl as had been rumored sometime back.
“She is stunning. There have been rumors about her being a Bond girl on the next film. I would love her to get the role, she’d be amazing,” Patel was quoted as saying.
However, Patel is not sure that he would be apt to play Pinto’s on-screen lover in this spy series. “I’m not sure I could ever play 007 though. I’m too much of a wimp,” laughs off Patel.
