Freida Pinto is the stunningly beautiful actress playing the character ‘Latika’ opposite Dev Patel in the surprise sensation Slumdog Millionaire. Her first and only movie has turned out to be an award-winning powerhouse.

Born and raised in Mumbai, before being found by director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later), she traversed the modeling circuit in Mumbai [represented by Elite Model Management India] for two years.

Surprisingly, Freida, who studied at Mumbai’s St.Xaviers College, only began taking acting classes [she has done amateur theatre before] after completing her debut film – when she attended a three-month workshop by Barry John, the veteran theatre guru.

Between 2006-07, she anchored ‘Full Circle’, a travel show which was telecast on Zee International Asia Pacific. She went on assignments to Afghanistan, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and Fiji among other countries.

Trivia:
Freida is trained in some forms of Indian classical dance as well as Salsa.
