Freida Pinto struggled to get through Trishna filming
Tue, 10 Jul 2012 11:24a.m.
Actress Freida Pinto felt drained and exhausted after shooting upcoming movie Trishna in rural India.
The Slumdog Millionaire star completed the project in the state of Rajasthan, rising every morning to eat hand-pounded bread with a spicy chutney, which helped kill the bacteria in the water, and shoot all day in a crowded shack, which housed most of the crew.
And Pinto, who plays the titular character, a poor woman scraping by on a meagre living, admits the drama was a struggle to get through, telling the New York Daily News, "Sometimes I feel that this film has drained everything out of me. I had nothing left."
But the Mumbai-born actress insists she welcomed the challenge as an actress, adding, "When I shot 'Slumdog Millionaire,' I felt like I was shooting in my backyard. But when I was shooting in rural India, it felt like a different world. I learned a lot, I learned to milk a cow!"
