Freida Pinto, star of the surprise hit Slumdog Millionaire, has a secret. In December 2007, while still filming Slumdog, she married businessman Rohan Antao, in Goa. He has previously been referred to as her fiance. Now that Pinto has become an overnight sensation, the husband is out. According to his friends, she stopped taking his calls around Golden Globes time. Freida’s agent in India, who should also expect to be dumped momentarily, asked for a copy of a marriage certificate when confronted by reporters.
I suppose the biggest confirmation that this story is true, is that Antao changed his Facebook status to “single”. And I know it’s shameful, but I friend requested him. There is something about a wronged Mumbai-based marketing exec wearing a Hooters t-shirt that I cannot resist.
