“I don’t compare myself with Freida Pinto. She has come a long way. She does only films in the West. I am open to do both – Indian films and films from the West,” Tina told reporters.
The link between Tina and Freida is that the latter also made her international debut with British movie “Slumdog Millionaire” and her co-star was Dev Patel who stars in “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”
Directed by John Madden, known for directing Oscar winning movie “Shakespeare In Love”, “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” also starred Judi Dench and Bill Nighy.
“After doing this film, I have realised that there is no language for cinema. Don’t be surprised if you all see me in different kinds of cinema,” said Tina.
However to star in a film was hard work for Tina
“Before I got the role, I had to give three long auditions. First, in front of the casting director, then with John Madden and then with the film’s producer and Madden again. But, it went off smoothly. John’s a great guy,” she said.
Tena debuted in Hindi films with “Yeh Faasle”, which also starred Anupam Kher, in 2011.
