Freida Pinto on the Cover of Esquire’s UK April Issue.

Frieda Pinto, Esquire UK’s  April cover star reveals a whole new side in these exclusive pictures.

She was the Indian girl with the faraway eyes in Slumdog Millionaire, the best-supporting hottie in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

What British audiences perhaps don’t yet know about Freida is that she’s also a funny, no-nonsense, fast-talking Anglophile who loves London almost as much as her home town.

“Even though it’s so dreadful in the winter, I still think it’s beautiful,” she says. “So much culture and history. Like Bombay!”

As the biggest Indian movie star in the West, she also feels that she’s needed to adopt an almost ambassadorial role for her home country.

“It’s almost a duty,” she says. “People are very curious about India and I always try to represent my country in a non-stereotypical light.”

There’s no guarantee that her new film Trishna, an Indian reworking of Tess of the Durbevilles directed by Michael Winterbottom, will even get a release in India where censorship is strict.

“Even if it doesn’t, the people who want to see it will find a way to get an uncensored copy.” When Freida speaks, a nation of a billion is ready to tune in.

For more pictures and the full interview, read the April issue, out March 1. Trishna is out on March 9
