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.
