Freida Pinto is certainly enjoying the international celebrity status she got after the successful run of her first movie Slumdog Millionaire. Freida recently appeared on the cover of the March 2009 issue of Maxim India magazine.

Maxim India’s March 2009 issue will see Freida sporting an oversized sweater on the cover. Her expression is playful, naughty and a little ambiguous in the picture.

Unlike her previous avatars, where she appeared all dolled up, Freida will be seen in a little more natural look with less of make-up and accessories.

She was earlier seen on the February cover of Vogue, going by the fame she got for her performance in the eight Oscar winning movie. I must say, she got more attention for her work than her co-star Dev Patel. The two were reported to be dating… but then it’s no surprise. Both are young, new to the celebrity scene and fresh for rumor-mongers.

Freida has since denied the rumors.

The buzz is that she will moving to New York to pursue her Hollywood career and has already been signed-up for a Woody Allen movie. The called Variety, will also cast Noami Watts, Josh Brolin and Anthony Hopkins.

Pinto, who visited the Indian consulate in New York yesterday, is very excited and happy about the project.
