Freida learns to dance
Actor Freida Pinto is back to work after her big stint at the Cannes International Film Festival. The actor who is a regular at the prestigious film festival was quite a favourite with the paparazzi there; though this time she wasn't accompanied by boyfriend actor, Dev Patel. After a week long stint at the French Riviera, the actor is back to the grind and if sources close to her are to be believed, she has already dived headlong into work.
The actor who lives in Los Angeles has reportedly started work on her next project, a film about the Iranian dancer Afshin Gaffarian. A source close to the actor says, "Besides her cosmetic brand that she was representing, Freida was also talking about her films and upcoming projects. Though she did announce her film, titled, Desert Dancer, Freida was under a contract to not disclose any details about the project. However, it has been learnt that she will play a dancer in the film. Preparations to play the part are already on in full swing because Freida wants to leave no stone unturned to play the part convincingly."
The actor on her return to LA has already started preparing for her role. Since she plays a dancer, she is learning contemporary dance and is also taking a beginner level course in ballet. She is also learning a bit of belly dancing. The source further reveals, "Frieda who was last seen shaking a leg in Jai ho in Slumdog Millionaire is quite graceful but to perform a specialised dance form requires some skills. She is currently undergoing a lot of workshops for her role." Frieda's other film, Trishna that received a great response abroad is also set to release soon. And though the dates haven't been finalised as yet, Frieda will be making a trip to India to promote her film sometime in July or August.
