Actor Freida Pinto has been in the news of late for her bold photo shoots and steamy scenes. The actor, who had already made it clear that she doesn’t have inhibitions of showing skin on screen, was yet again in the news about her trying to pull strings to ensure that only the toned down version of her next release, Trishna is released in India. The film, apparently, has some explicit love-making sequences which the producers are having second thoughts about, considering the stringent censor board rules out here.
When contacted, her official spokesperson denies the entire episode. “Frieda is very happy with the way the film has turned out. She was always aware of what she was doing and her role, so the question of deleting scenes and toning it down doesn’t come at all. Besides, she isn’t the one to interfere on what goes on at the editing table. This is absolutely ridiculous,” she said.
A source close to the actor also adds, “This is not the first time, Freida is doing a bold sequence. She had done a scene earlier in Immortals. She knows that these things get blown out of proportion, so she hasn’t really spoken about it. Besides, she always knew what she was getting into and is very comfortable with her body. She would never urge the producers to delete any scene.”
Freida is currently shooting for the Knight of Cups with Batman actor, Christian Bale. If sources from the sets are to be believed, the duo has hit it off very well. “Freida has been spotted teaching and practicing yoga with Christian, who’s quite fitness conscious. He is apparently very taken up by her. They both have been having a great time shooting for the film.” While there was news about Freida coming to India to promote her film, looks like her fans back home will have to wait a little longer to catch a glimpse of her. The release of Trishna has been pushed further, throwing all her plans off gear.
