Slumdog star says she would have been wedding planner
NEW DELHI (AFP) - Indian actress Freida Pinto, of Oscar-winning "Slumdog Millionaire" fame, said on Friday she would have become a wedding planner if she had not succeeded in show business.
Ms Pinto, a former model, said "my only passion was acting" but she had told her sister that if she hadn't become successful by the age of 25, she would switch profession.
"But fortunately when I was 23, Slumdog Millionaire happened and so I didn't become a wedding planner," Ms Pinto, now 28, told a conference organised by Indian media group India Today.
Since the actress shot to fame with the 2008 "Slumdog Millionaire", she has worked in other international movie projects like Woody Allen's "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger", "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" and "Trishna".
