Freida Pinto Defends Herself

Slumdog Millionaire's Freida Pinto is defending herself from critics back home in India.

They aren't too happy with her blooming Hollywood career.

Following Slumdog, she starred in You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger and will also appear in the upcoming Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Immortals.

Fans back home want her to come back to Bollywood, but Freida insists she isn't snubbing them, saying:

I was upset initially. I haven't done a film in India because I haven't found a script that's completely gotten my attention and made me passionate to get it made. I guess everybody in India has tried really hard to do what they do and then move into the West. The reason why I'm doing these things outside my country, bit by bit, is to be able to come back to India equipped with the knowledge and understanding of how to hopefully produce my own films one fine day.

Girlfriend, it's your life, your timeline.

You do what you want to do on your own terms. Your true fans will always be there.

    They are upset because she is the love interest of white men in most of those films. There, I said it!

    Bollywood is lame and copies Hollywood movies then adds dumb music. For her sake, she should work on establishing her career in Hollywood to secure her future.

    India has very backwards thoughts about women…very sexist and treat women like 2nd class citizens….i am sure Freida wants the hell out of that mind-set….Stay strong girl, show them you are YOUR own woman!!!!

    i am sure you have never seen a bollywood movie in your life. in current films they show love interests in other races and religions. so before you make a judgement think twice!

    if bollywood was lame, then why is it more successful in hollywood? there are plenty of indian actors in bollywood with established careers. far more established then actors in hollywood. do your research before making an ignorant comment.

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, BidsGet.com
