Freida Pinto - Freida Pinto Rates Slumdog As Top

Freida Pinto says none of her filmmaking experiences have been as good as 'Slumdog Millionaire'.

The Indian actress shot to fame after starring in the movie alongside now-boyfriend Dev Patel and though she has made numerous films since, she wishes they were all as enjoyable as the Danny Boyle-directed story.

She said: "Danny would tell us, 'Just know that you've had a great time doing this film and that you've enjoyed yourself. Let the experience be superlative rather than the expectation.'

"The experience was phenomenal. I've not had an experience like 'Slumdog' in all of the seven films I've done since. It was a baby that you want to keep repeating over and over again."

The 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' star was working as a TV presenter and model before she was cast in 'Slumdog Millionaire', and admits it would have been "stupid" to turn down the opportunity to appear in the blockbuster.

Freida added to InStyle magazine: "I think for me, the opportunity was so big that I'd be stupid to waste it and walk away from it. Because acting is something I've always wanted to do.

"I never knew it was going to happen the way it happened. But if I'm going to be presented with an opportunity, it would be silly not to lap it up. And that opportunity was given to me by 'Slumdog'."
