Freida Pinto is the New face of Estee Lauder

Freida Pinto, the Slumdog Millionaire actress who starred with Dev Patel in the Oscar winning film, is set to become the latest face of Estee Lauder.

The Mumbai-born actress and former model will join Liz Hurley and Gwyneth Paltrow in a deal reported to be worth £200,000.

“Freida is hot property right now because ‘Slumdog’ has been a history maker of sorts,” said Bollywood expert Taran Adarsh

Just two months ago, before Danny Boyle’s acclaimed film picked up a string of awards culminating in seven Baftas and eight Oscars, unknown Pinto was struggling to get a job.

In the two weeks since Slumdog’s Oscar triumph Freida’s marketability has soared 1,000 percent, making her one of India’s biggest stars overnight despite never having been in a Bollywood film. In the two weeks since the Oscars the one-time struggling model has been among the most photographed faces at Milan Fashion Week and has graced the covers of Vogue and Cosmopolitan magazines.

In her next film (production to begin as early as June) Freida Pinto’s will share screen space with none other than Hollywood heart throb Antonio Banderas, Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin and Anthony Hopkins in Woody Allen’s next film.
