Freida breaks off engagement?

Freids breaks off engagement?Nothing talks like success. Ask Freida Pinto who shot to fame after playing Latika in the award-winning film, Slumdog Millionaire . No longer is Freida the girl next door who lived a simple life prior to the film’s release. After receiving rave reviews for her performance, Freida’s future only looks brighter.

Consequently, her newfound success has changed many things in her life. And that includes her relationship status. According to an industry insider, Freida recently broke up with her Bangalore-based fiancé. “Success is what prompted the actress to cut off all past ties that could pose as a barrier between her and the dizzying heights of fame post Slumdog Millionaire. She now knows that bigger things are in store for her. She was engaged to someone from Bangalore and all was well until Slumdog Millionaire released and everyone applauded the film. It went on to win four Golden Globe awards. Evidently, Freida didn’t want to get caught up in the regular routine life just when her career was taking off. So, she decided to call off the engagement and instead concentrate on her career,” said the source.

Freida: I’m an actor, not a star

article001Freida Pinto, female lead in the much acclaimed Slumdog Millionaire, is enjoying every minute of her new found stardom. “It’s been a great homecoming,” she says with a tired but contented smile. The Indian premiere last night has kept the jet-lagged actress on her toes ever since she came back from the Golden Globes.

“I need to treasure these moments for the rest of my life. For someone who’s never acted before, this break was a blessing. Working for Danny Boyle was like attending the best acting school. When we started working, he told me, ‘Life isn’t always the same. Brace yourself for the world!’ The attention does get overwhelming at times and I’m still getting used to it. I’m a shy, reserved girl. Even when today someone compliments me, I get very embarrassed,” she says with laugh.

The last week has been almost surreal for the ex-Xavierite. “Suddenly everyone needs my opinion and wants to know everything about me! Just yesterday a man stopped me to ask if he could take a picture with me. The adulation has been very unexpected. At the Golden Globes, I felt like Alice in Wonderland on the red carpet. Being among all those stars was a very humbling experience and was even more special because I’ve struggled to get where I am,” says the dusky beauty.

Freida’s reaction to Oscar nominations

Even though Freida herself didn’t receive an Academy Award nomination (she did deserve a Best Supporting Actress nod!), she’s been quoted amongst all of the “celebrity reactions”. Check out what she had to say below!

“The entire Slumdog Millionaire experience has exceeded my wildest expectations. I feel thrilled and so thankful that Danny had faith in me even though I had no past experience in films. Hailing from Mumbai, it means even more to me that a film about this unique city has been nominated for such a prestigious award. It’s been an absolute honor to have worked with such a passionate team and its wonderful to know that critics and audiences across the globe have loved what we have worked so hard to achieve.”
