Freida Pinto, who became a star overnight by featuring in multiple award-winning film Slumdog Millionaire, gives credit to her mentor Barry John for bringing out the actor in her.

"I'm grateful to Danny Boyle for giving me my debut film Slumdog Millionaire, which has won three Golden Globe awards and has been nominated for 10 Oscars this year, but before that I'm thankful to my teacher Barry John-sir who taught me how to bring out the actor in me and portray the character so convincingly," said Freida.

Barry John's Acting Studio has been the springboard for several actors including superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Manoj Bajpai, Shiney Ahuja and Kunal Kapoor.
