Freida Pinto to pair opposite Antonio Banderas

'Slumdog Millionaire' actress Freida Pinto is all set to star opposite Antonio Banderas. It is a Hollywood periodic film titled, 'Black Thirst’ to be directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud. The story is set in 1920 that speaks about how America targets the Gulf countries for oil.

Freida plays an Arabian princess and she is paired opposite Rahim. But she has also some important scenes with Banderas. The film is highly inspired from Hans R Ruesch's globally acclaimed work South of the Heart: A Novel of Modern Arabia published in 1957.

After the success of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, Freida Pinto shot to fame. She has acted in Hollywood films like ‘Rise of the Apes’, ‘Immortals, Miral’, You Will Meet a Tall, Dark Stranger.

In the Toronto International film festival, Pinto walked the red carpet with boyfriend and actor Dev Patel.
