Freida Pinto may be a year old in the glamour world but she"s certainly going places! The pretty lass charmed both Bollywood and the West with her debut Slumdog Millionaire. Since then, she"s been busy with Hollywood projects like Miral. She is now gearing up to walk the red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival 2010.
Freida will attend the extravaganza as a part of Woody Allen's You will meet a Tall, Dark Stranger. The cast and crew of the film, including Anthony Hopkins, Naomi Watts and Anna Friel are expected to make an appearance at the prestigious film festival. Their film will be screened in the 'out of competition section" The 63rd Cannes 2010 opens on 12th May to 23rd May and will see a host of international stars in attendance.
Last year, there was a buzz that Freida had edged out Cannes veteran Aishwarya Bachchan. This year too, Ash is expected to sashay down the red carpet with hubby Abhishek as their film Raavan would be screened at Official India Pavillion.
