Freida Pinto says she "lived in fear" of not landing another film role after starring in the Oscar winning 'Slumdog Millionaire'.Freida Pinto, the Indian actress who is gaining rave reviews for her performance in the forthcoming movie 'Miral', claims that she was nervous about life after 'Slumdog Millionaire', the film that won eight Oscars in 2009.Pinto plays an orphaned Palestinian teacher growing up in war-torn Jerusalem in the controversial new movie. Some Jewish groups have claimed that the project is 'anti-Israel' and the film's advertising tagline boldly declares, "The movie they tried to stop is coming to New York". 26-year-old Pinto, who recently starred in Woody Allen's 'You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger', is gaining plaudits for her gritty performance. The UK's Independent newspaper note, "Miral herself is played very engagingly by Freida Pinto as a mischievous and idealistic teenager with an acute sense of natural justice". Despite the glowing reviews, Pinto says she was nervous about taking her first role after the phenomenal success of 'Slumdog Millionaire', telling Tribute's Bonnie Laufer, "I had a lot of moments where I lived in fear that nothing was going to happen".
After establishing herself as one of Hollywood's finest young talents, Freida Pinto will next star alongside James Franco in the action-adventure movie 'Rise of the Apes'. The film is set in present day San Francisco and follows the story of a man's own experiments with genetic engineering.
