Though news reports stipulated that the gorgeous actress, Freida Pinto was said to be joining in the ranks of screen beauties Halle Berry, Ursula Andress and Grace Jones, in the next 007 movie to be directed by Sam Mendes, her agent has categorically stated that the opposite is true: "I would like to confirm that as of today, Freida Pinto has not been approached to be part of the next Bond film."
She rose to fame, from being a model, into being a global icon, the face of L’Oreal and much more, after being a key part of Danny Boyle’s multiple Oscar winning Slumdog Millionaire. She dates the young British actor, Dev Patel and the Mangalorean beauty, who loves her South Indian food, has a lot going for her indeed.
Although UK newspapers released articles quoting: "It will be a typically glamorous and raunchy role and Dev has been joking to friends he is cool with seeing Freida rolling around with 007." It remains to be seen as to this coveted role, that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was also said to have been in the pipeline for.
Freida’s official spokesperson also went on to say: "It is of course very flattering to even be rumoured to be part of a Bond film but she has certainly not been approached for the role of the next Bond girl opposite Daniel Craig as yet," he added.
The beauty, Freida, is currently working on her forthcoming projects which include, Julian Schnabel’s Miral, Woody Allen’s You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger and Tarsem Singh’s Greek Epic, War of the Gods.
