Freida can be next Bond girl

 Freida Pinto at Dubai International Film Fest  on 17th December 2008 (3).JPGSlumdog Millionaire’s Freida Pinto could be seen as the next Bond girl. Casting directors considered the Indian actress for 2008’s Quantum Of Solace, but picked Ukrainian model Olga Kurylenko after deciding Pinto was too young for the role, reports Britain’s The Sun.

A source tells the publication, “Freida came to the attention of the Bond team when they were casting Quantum Of Solace. She was too young at the time to play a love interest for a secret agent. But she is ready now. “She has blossomed into an incredibly stunning young woman and would look perfect on Daniel Craig’s arm. “Filmmaker Danny Boyle, who directed Pinto in Slumdog Millionaire, announced earlier this month (Mar09) he would not direct the next secret agent blockbuster – despite being a huge fan of the franchise.
