Four years ago when Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto was just an aspiring model, renowned Bollywood photographer Ryan Martis knew that she had the spark to make it big.

Pinto showed off her great figure and long legs in a fashion shoot with Martis in 2005.

After modelling and starring in TV ads, the 24-year-old landed her debut movie role as Latika in the Oscar nominated movie.

“The moment I saw her I recognised that Frieda was going to become a model. In fact, I suggested she audition for some modelling jobs,” the Sun quoted Martis, as saying.

“She knew how to play for the camera in her very first shoot.

“I am delighted she is getting such attention now. She did a great job and deserves it,” Martis added.
