Iski Toh Nikal Padi

Freida Pinto did not have much screen time in 'Slumdog...'. BUT she got to be on stage with Liam Neeson and has signed Woody Allen's next movie that stars Anthony Hopkins!

Know that many of Allen's actresses have gone on to win the Oscar. Case in point...Mira Sorvino for 'Mighty Aphrodite', Diane Keaton for 'Annie Hall' & Penelope Cruz for 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona'. Will Freida Pinto be next?

Who knows! Anything's possible!!
What I would like to know is - where did a born-and-brought-up-in-Mumbai girl pick up the kitsch accent from, that was on display at the Oscar red carpet? It was neither English, nor American, nor Indian.
When will us Indians learn to accept ourselves for what we are?

Really????????? Opp Anthony Hopkins????????? My god, she is lucky!!!!!! Her role is miniscule in the movie.. i hope all the kiddies from Slumdog have better luck!!!

The movie's also got Josh Brolin from 'No Country for Old Men'. I doubt she'll be paired opposite Anthony Hopkins but she's apparently the main lead.
