Freida Pinto as ‘Jas’ in ‘Guerilla’
Hollywood actress Freida Pinto, who catapulted to fame with her debut movie Slumdog Millionnaire, recently opened up on her beliefs on the consequences of a relationship.

The Mumbai born actress is currently seen playing the role of Jas Mitra in Oscar-winning writer John Ridley’s drama series 'Guerrilla' on channel Zee Café. Set against the evocative backdrop of the 1970s London, Freida said, “I’m fascinated by the tender exploration of the relationship between Jas and Marcus and the pressure it comes under. Any major decision in a relationship, a marriage, a break-up, moving in with your lover, starting a family – they all have consequences. It’s only then that you truly understand how much of that relationship can really survive the pressure it comes under, how much you are really up for each other.”Watch 'Guerrilla' on Zee Café every Friday at 9 pm.
