The sculpture, which has been on display in Chicago since  July 2011, has been dismantled and removed from the  venue on 08 May 2012 for erection at Palm Springs,California, for further display.

Freida Pinto and Woody Allen

Freida Pinto and Woody Allen

Freida Pinto has leaped from Mumbai’s Local train to Limousine at Los Angeles. Her destiny has taken her to Hollywood from Bollywood. Her life changed overnight like a fairy tale and she turned to be an Hollywood sensation and fashion diva.

On 22nd. Feb 2009, Sunday night at the Kodak Theatre in LA, you saw her as part of the jubilant Slumdog Millionaire team that swept the Academy Awards with eight Oscars. After two days, Vogue India presented the new style sensation and red carpet darling Freida Pinto in a different avatar as its cover girl for VOGUE March issue. Vogue India editor Priya Tanna, who believes Freida’s red carpet debut was as impressive as her onscreen one, added, “In a matter of months, this young actor has become a Hollywood sensation and a fashion diva.”

Freida Pinto, the film’s luminous leading lady who has been wowing the world on the red carpet and across television interviews lining up to the Slumdog’s Oscar glory, has gone one better and signed up a film with director Woody Allen. This is not just massive news for the 24-year-old Mumbai girl, but a spectacular breakthrough for any Indian actress. Allen has created many women characters in his films and now it the turn of Freida Pinto of Bollywood to be characterized by him and who knows we may see her in the Kodak Theater again next year. As media reports, CAA brokered Pinto a fee of an estimated $3 million for the film.
