As mentioned in the previous post, Freida Pinto was selected for the jury at the 2012 Dubai International Film Festival. Tonight was the opening gala as well as the screening of Life of Pi, and Freida was of course in attendance. She looked beautiful in a golden dress as she walked the red carpet. Click on the previews below to see the first pictures and stay tuned for more coverage from the film festival in the coming days!

With Desert Dancer currently filming, it’s been very quiet in Freida-land (and here on Freida Pinto Fan) this past November, but things are about to change come December – she’s been selected to join the jury at this year’s Dubai International Film Festival! As a member of the jury, she will be judging films that are part of the Shorts and Emirati section – short films from the Arab, Emirati and Asian African countries making her the first Indian to be on the jury of the international short film contest as part of the festival.

In addition to her duties as a juror, she has also been invited to attend a special gala hosted by Academy Award winning actor Colin Firth and his fashion entrepreneur wife Livia to support the annual ‘One Night to Change Lives’ charity event to benefit Oxfam and Dubai Cares on December 14. Last year’s event raised over $1 million, funding 14 regional schools and 10 schools in Pakistan. The festival will kick start on Dec 9 and will come to a close on Dec 16. We will provide you with full coverage from the film festival. Stay tuned!

Earlier today, Freida Pinto attended a photocall for her upcoming movie Desert Dancer in London, England. Set in Iran, where dance is illegal, Desert Dancer tells the story of Afshin Ghaffarian (Reece Ritchie) who risked his life to fight for his dream to become a dancer. This film plays against the backdrop of the 2009 election protests, where the passion and defiance of a young generation lit the flame of revolution still sweeping the Middle East and Africa. Freida said she had no professional experience of dancing before she began rehearsals for the film, but there was a strong tradition in her native India. “We love dancing in India anyway,” she said at a press conference at London’s Sadlers Wells Theatre today as plans for the film were announced. She said rehearsals have had a huge impact on her life: “It’s not just training for the film, it’s training for life – dance has made me emotionally stronger as well, I deal with situations much better.” Filming – due to take place in the UK, the Middle East and north Africa – begins next week, with the movie expected to be released next year.

According to rumors on the Internet, controversial best selling author and Osama Bin Laden’s mistress in 1996, Kola Boof, has said that Hollywood Studio Lionsgate is making a film on her biopic titled Osama and the Sex Slave. Boof further reveals that the studio is trying to cast Freida Pinto along with Adrien Brody, who would be playing notorious terrorist Osama Bin Laden. So far these are just rumors, but we will keep you updated on the project.

Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that Cloverfield and Let Me In director Matt Reeves is finalizing a deal to direct Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the sequel to 2011′s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which itself was a prequel-reboot of the original Planet of the Apes films from the 1960s and 70s. Reeves replaces Rise director Rupert Wyatt, who reportedly left the project due to concerns about Fox’s announced release date of May 23, 2014. Andy Serkis will, however, reprise his performance-capture role as lead intelli-ape Caesar. No word yet whether costars James Franco and Freida Pinto will also be returning. Stay posted for more.

Tonight, Freida Pinto attended a dinner celebrating Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Rendez-Vous Collection at the Giustinian Palace in Venice, Italy. She looked superfit and incredible, as she once again walked the red carpet, posing with actor Clive Owen. Pictures from the event have been added to our photo gallery.

Two days ago Freida Pinto participated in a press conference held to promote the release of Trishna. She looked gorgeous in a purple dress (which, by the way, is the same outfit she wore to the taping of Conan) as she discussed the movie with the press. Click on the previews below to see all the pictures in our photo archive.

On July 17, Freida Pinto attended the Flaunt Magazine and Agave Denim ‘All Wrapped Up In Blue’ dinner reception, celebrating The Denim Issue at Sherbourne in Los Angeles, California. The event was hosted by Freida Pinto herself, who looked great in a black top and red skirt. A couple of pictures have been added to the photo gallery.

I’m back from traveling and ready to catch up with all that’s happened since I last updated Freida Pinto Fan! She’s attended two special screenings of Trishna – one held in Los Angeles and the other in New York. As always, Freida looked absolutely gorgeous at both events. More to be added soon; stay tuned!
