The 33-year-old Indian actress, Freida Pinto started her Hollywood journey with the Oscar-winning film "Slumdog Millionaire". Recently she opened up about going through a phase of "self-doubt and anxiety".

The actress told in an interview, "I made it very clear after ’Slumdog...’ that I would have to carve my own path and also determine the path for the next generation of Indian actors. It was very important for me to not surrender to the Indian stereotype. But there was a fear of missing out. There was a no formula, which I could follow. There was a phase in my career for two-and-half years where there was a lot anxiety and fear."
