Hollywood actor Freida Pinto does not want her actor-boyfriend, Dev Patel, to act opposite two Bollywood actors. Reason? He finds them sexy.

On a soon-to-be aired episode of Koffee With Karan, when Karan Johar asked her which actor she never wants Dev to work with, Freida said, “Nargis and Deepika, because Dev finds them very sexy, it’s quite troublesome at times.”

Freida also shared that she chose Slumdog Millionaire, over a Hindi film. When Johar asked her if she ever faced rejection in Bollywood, the actor said, “I don’t know if it’s rejection. I had two days of training, they auditioned me and I realised that the Slumdog auditions were on at the same time, too. So I had to make a choice. At that point, I felt like I wasn’t going to be able to deliver, physically, what the film required me to do.”

Freida, who appeared on the show with Nargis Fakhri, took a dig at actors who say they are not interested in doing Hollywood films. “Oh please, you all want to win an Oscar,” she said.
