Actor Freida Pinto, while talking to The Daily Telegraph, called Indian media ‘cruel’, and said she’s not taken seriously as an actor here.

“I’ve realised they’re cruel about everyone. They love to hate and make other people hate as well, which is sad as most of the stories are untrue or misconstrued,” said Freida, 27, recalling being mocked for her accent, and calling Mumbai by its original name.

In the interview, Freida also admitted that fame was “almost too much” for her after filming 2008 smash hit movie Slumdog Millionaire, and she felt her co-star and boyfriend Dev Patel was the only person who “truly understood” what she was going through.

“If I needed to talk to someone about what happened, he was the only one who knew what was going on. It was nice to have those moments and that experience together,” she told the magazine.

She may not get a meaty role in a Bollywood film, but Freida's fans will see her soon in two Hollywood flicks soon. She will be seen portraying the character of an Iranian woman in Black Gold and an Indian woman in Trishna.
