$7 million ad deal for Freida Pinto?

If rumours are to be believed, the ‘Slumdog Milllionaire’ star has signed a two-year endorsement deal with a high fashion apparel brand for $7 million.
She is expected to get $3.5 million a year.
“Since it is a two year deal, it makes it a $7 million deal. In Indian rupees, it comes out to be approximately Rs.35 crore. It is higher than what any Indian female celebrity has ever been paid,” said a source close to the 27-year-old Indian model-turned-actress.
When contacted, Anirban Das Blah, managing director, KWAN, the agency that handles Freida’s endorsements in India, said, “It’s a policy never to comment on brand deals. We’ve witnessed Freida’s phenomenal growth in such a short span, and that too on a global platform. Brand Freida stands for very rare, unique and irreplaceable values and imagery, making her the ideal choice for a brand with a global appeal and an Indian focus.”
Freida made it big internationally post her appearance in Danny Boyle’s Oscar-winning film ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. Since then, she has featured in films like ‘You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger’ and ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’.
