It’s finally here – Trishna is released in US theaters today! The film, loosely based on Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbervilles, stars Freida Pinto and Jay Ahmed in the leads. It’s been given positive reviews, currently with a 75% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.com, with many of them praising Freida’s portrayal of Trishna.

As you may have noticed, we have a brand new design here at Freida Pinto Fan! The previous one was a bit too heavy for the summer, so I thought that this quite simple layout would suit the current season better. The photo gallery has already been integrated to the new look, and so will the video archive and press library too, in the coming days. The black & white header will be changed time-to-time, to represent the current activity for Freida. I hope you will like the change, please drop a comment before you leave. Thanks!
Attending her fourth event at the 65th Annual Cannes International Film Festival, Freida Pinto was photographed at the L’Oreal Paris+Cannes Film Festival’s 15th Anniversary Dinner. She looked great once again, this time in a white dress with golden details. Click on the preview to the left to check out the pictures in our photo gallery. Out of the four, which has been your favorite look for Freida so far this Cannes Film Festival? Personally I really liked her in the lime dress from the previous post. She truly looked stunning, sexy and confident.
We finally know what the “secret projects” that Freida’s involved in are! Indiewire reported that she’s starring in the Belgian/Congo period romance drama titled The Catastrophist. Freida will play the Italian journalist Ines, next to Dan Stevens from Downtown Abbey and rapper K’Naan in this “love story, historical novel and troubling reflection on Africa’s ongoing political upheaval.” Filming is due to start in Tanzania in February 2013. The other project, reported by Forbes, is a movie about life in Iran for a young man who’s trying to push the limits of the repressive culture. It’s sort of like Footloose in Iran. Reece Ritchie is the dancing fool, Freida plays his girlfriend. First time director Afshin Ghaffarin is directing. Now word yet on when production starts.
Two very different projects, but both will be interesting to follow. Freida has said that she’s been working out for the past months for a film role, could it be for the latter one? Which one are you most excited to see?
