Freida Pinto in an interview said that she hoped she could have a long and successful career like the career’s of Helen Mirren and Meryl Streep. Freida played the role of a priestess with the power to see the future in the film Immortals. In an email interaction Freida said “If I had Phaedra’s powers and if I could look into the future, I think I would want longevity in my career. I say from the point of view that women as such do not have greater shelf life in this industry”
She added “Some of them defy all odds like Helen Mirren or Meryl Streep, who can do exactly what a 20-year-old can do. So I think I would wish for that,”.
On Bollywood films Freida said, “They are an amazing celebration, we have enjoyed them for years. At the moment it is changing and with directors like Anurag Kashyap and Dibakar Banarjee…it’s a style that is slowly changing; something that we saw in the 1980s and it’s happening again with modern technology. I have already done Trishna, so when people see it, they’ll know I’ve already done a Hindi film. Even Slumdog for me is an Indian film, it was directed by an English director but one cannot discredit the fact that there wa s Anil Kapoor or Irrfan Khan in the film”.
