Freida Pinto's has been the ultimate success story. Not quite from rags to riches, but certainly from a modelling agency, straight to the Oscar red carpet.
After the success of Slumdog Millionaire, Freida has just not looked back, and is sitting content as Hollywood offers pour in. After the announcement of a Woody Allen project with the likes of Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins and Naomi Watts, Freida is now being considered to be the next Bond girl.
Sources say that the producers first noticed Freida while casting for Quantum of Solace, but she was dropped because she would look too young. A few months later, it seems, she has matured enough to be the arm candy of Daniel Craig who plays the British spy.
Sources also say that the chances of the actress' participation in the film seem strong as executive producer of the film Barbara Broccoli is eager to cast her.
