Slumdog Millionaire star riding high
Freida Pinto, Slumdog Millionaire star, has joined the cast of Julian Schnabel’s “Miral” – an adaptation of a book about Hind Husseini, who founded an orphanage in Jerusalem in the wake of 1948 partition of Palestine and the creation of the state of Israel.
Pinto recently boarded Woody Allen’s new Untitled project, alongside Nicole Kidman, Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins and Naomi Watts. She has also joined Nicole Kidman in a commercial for soft drinks Company, produced by Ridley Scott and directed by Shekhar Kapur.
Pinto is not the only Sumdog star to attract attention; the child actor Runida Ali Qureshi who played the youngest version of Latika is getting the much needed attention as well.
