Actress Freida Pinto says none of her filmmaking experiences have been as good as ‘Slumdog Millionaire’.
Pinto, 26, shot to fame after starring in the movie alongside her current boyfriend Dev Patel and though she has made numerous films since, she wishes they were all as enjoyable as the Danny Boyle-directed film.
“Danny would tell us, ‘Just know that you’ve had a great time doing this film and that you’ve enjoyed yourself. Let the experience be superlative rather than the expectation.’
“The experience was phenomenal. I’ve not had an experience like ‘Slumdog..’ in all of the seven films I’ve done since. It was a baby that you want to keep repeating over and over again,” she said.
Freida was working as a TV presenter and model before she was cast in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, and admitted it would have been ‘stupid’ to turn down the opportunity.
“I think for me, the opportunity was so big that I’d be stupid to waste it and walk away from it,” Pinto said.
