Frieda on Slumdog, Bollywood and more

Golden Globe winning film Slumdog Millionaire's lead actress Frieda Pinto talks about her Bollywood favourites, media speculation about her personal life and if she considers herself a destiny's child.

CNN-IBN: You can truly be called destiny's child, so Frieda would you say everything worked out just right for you?

Frieda Pinto: Yes I guess it did. I believe it was the right amount of hard work and some amount of luck as well.

CNN-IBN: What kind of films do you like and who are your favourite actors?

Frieda Pinto: Among the newer lot, I like Imran Khan a lot and I liked Vishal Bharadwaj's Omkara as well and Aamir Khan he is top notch.

CNN-IBN: So is it now time for you to say goodbye to Hollywood and say hello to Bollywood?

Frieda Pinto: Now that is a difficult question. No it wouldn't be right to do that, all I want to say is that I'm right here and I am open to receiving all kinds of scripts. Even in Bollywood, there are some very interesting films being made these days, so I'm open to both.

CNN-IBN: With so much media attention there's bound to be some prying into your private life. Are you prepared?

Frieda Pinto: Well it has already started, my sister called me up to tell me that on weekipedia I was dating some guy in UK. So I guess it's the price you have to pay and I'm coping with it.
