Freida Pinto is set to move to New York. The Indian actress is ready to quit her home in Mumbai to further her career following the success of her movie "Slumdog Millionaire" - which won eight Academy Awards at last month's Oscars.
If she does relocate, Freida, 24, isn't worried about getting homesick because she says the Big Apple has a lot in common with the bustling Indian city.
She said: "I'd definitely move to New York because, in a way, it's very similar to Mumbai except that it's more organized. I was walking down Fifth Avenue recently and I realized that everyone is walking in one direction totally focused on what they're doing."
"I remember it being 5 am one night and I was on the 23rd floor of a hotel, I could hear the honking cars and I thought, 'I feel like I'm in Mumbai!'"
Freida - who made her film debut in "Slumdog Millionaire" - is confident she can be a success in Hollywood, despite the low number of Indian actors who have made it big in Tinseltown.
She told Britain's OK! magazine: "I'm not worried about not doing well. I feel a film like 'Slumdog...' has really showcased my acting talents. Because I'm not always seen in my best light in the movie - I have a scar on my face and a black eye - it de-glamorizes the character and that in itself becomes the beauty of the character. Hopefully it will do great things for my career so people don't just see me as a beautiful model."
