It’s Homecoming Time: Freida Pinto In Mumbai After 3 Years
MUMBAI, (IANS) – US-based actress Freida Pinto is in Mumbai after a gap of three years.
She is attending Christian Dior‘s special fashion showcase. The actress has been specially invited to attend and be part of the special show dedicated to India.
Talking about her India visit, Freida says: “When fashion brands use their platform to highlight the incredible contribution from other cultures and in this case my own, my Indian culture, it’s an association I cannot afford to not get behind. This has already been an incredible year for India in the field of arts and sports and so it’s only fair we add fashion to the list too.”
Freida, via her production venture Freebird Films, is currently prepping for ‘The Henna Artist’ and Huma Abedin’s biopic.
‘The Henna Artist’ is a series based on Alka Joshi’s bestselling debut novel from Miramax TV written and executive produced by Sri Rao.
Abedin’s New York Times bestselling memoir, “Both/And, A Life in Many Worlds”, will be turned into a TV series where Freida will star as Hillary Clinton’s top aide and longtime advisor in the project.
Pinto and her producing partner Emily Verellen Strom will executive produce the series alongside Abedin.
