US-based Indian actress Freida Pinto, who rose to fame with the Oscar-winning film "Slumdog Millionaire," says she has no problem working in Hindi films.

"I have no problem working in Hindi language films. In fact, I worked in a half Marwari film 'Trishna' when I couldn't even speak the language. I had to learn it," she said.

"The thing is not that who is in the film. It's the story which is important for me," she added.

Freida was recently speaking at an event where Google unveiled virtual exhibits -- "Women in India: Unheard stories". 

About her upcoming film, the 32-year-old said: "I've a fantastic film coming out next year. It is directed by Tabrez Noorani, who is an Indian. He was one of the producers of 'Slumdog Millionaire'. He has done a fantastic film called 'Love Sonia'. It also has Anupam Kher and Adil Hussain. So, yes, I am doing Hindi language films. Also, I do speak in Hindi."

The film tells the heartfelt and brave story of Sonia, a young Indian village girl whose life changes when she is entrapped into the global sex trade network.

All the comments here are so silly. Firstly she was always rejected for Bollywood films because she was too "dusky" as they said. So she finally landed a part in Slumdog Millionaire, was offered roles in Hollywood and she worked the fashion scene, why wouldn't she keep going with that? Why come back to India where you're making less pay first of all and then also not getting a chance to do anything interesting in your roles? Then you guys are hating on her for no reason because she's "oversmart".. yeahhhh

Tell it! These haters on here just can't stand her no matter what she does. When has she ever lied? Bollywood can kiss behind.

She used to bad mouth Bollywood in west. She thought a movie with James Franco will make her an A-lister. Seriously, just go away.

Look whos coming home. She wasted a decade not hiring the right agency to pick her good work in the west.

Freida might want to work in hindi films, but we don't want to watch her. She cannot act, she tried for too long in hollywood. She got rejected there so now she wants Indians to watch her non acting. She looks so plain and cannot act

I really hope Ekta Kapoor doesn't read this. :/

Obviously 15 min fame in Hollywood is over, before Bollywood wasn't good enough for her

I still remember the way she was boooed by audience at global citizen festival in mumbai. She was behVing too over smart for her shoes.
