There is a recurring pattern in actress Freida Pinto’s films and that is the presence of strong female characters. The Hollywood-based Indian actress says it’s the first thing that she considers while choosing films.
Be it ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, ‘Miral’ or her film ‘Trishna’ – all the films have seen her playing such characters.
“A strong female character is the most important thing that I look for in my films. Hence the bottom line is that every character I play needs to have a strong undertone,” Frieda told in an interview.
She did pick up a film in which she couldn’t get the same satisfaction that she drew from her earlier films.
“I’m not going to mention the film’s name and I’m glad that most people didn’t see it. In the film, I did a role where I could not feel the strength of my character and it showed in my performance. Since then, I haven’t repeated that thing,” she added.
