Some action please!

New desire

Some action please!

Freida Pinto

The Mumbaikar shot to fame as Latika in Slumdog Millionaire which went on to win eight Oscars and played a similar feminine character in Woody Allen's romance You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger.

But Pinto is tired of the girly roles now and wants some action.  “I keep playing the damsel in distress. But I'd like something with a kick now,” she said. Pinto who is dating her Slumdog Millionaire co-star Dev Patel, said that she was very nervous while shooting with Woody Allen.

"This was my third film, so I was worried I was the only one with a lot to learn. But when I met people like Anthony Hopkins who were feeling pretty nervous, I realised everyone is intimidated to work with a legend," said Pinto.

After making their debut in the Mumbai based potboiler, both Pinto and Patel, 20, have gone on to become international stars.

Pinto's performance in French director Julian Schnabel's film Miral has already created a buzz. The former model is paired opposite James Franco in the Rise of the Apes and she has already started work on Tarsem Singh's new movie Immortals alongside stars like Mickey Rourke and Kellan Lutz.
