Freida Pinto drives a motor boat on the cover of Conde Nast Traveler‘s September 2013 issue.
Here is what the 28-year-old actress, chosen as one of the magazine’s visionaries, had to share with the mag:
On knowing what is happening in the world: “There’s so much happening around the world, and the only way to be more well versed is to be a global citizen, traveling from one place to another all the time.”
On her photo shoot for the mag: “It was nerve-wracking. I have a bit of a fear of the water. My favorite part was when the photographer and I decided to just throw caution to the wind, and take off in one of the speedboats. It was a moment of spontaneous, wild fun!”
On doing the shoot in a town in India: “I want to show off India to the world! I wanted to show that there is so much more to Kashmir than what’s reported in the paper and on the telly.”
FYI: Freida was chosen as a “visionary” for working with Plan International and shining her star power on one of the world’s most important challenges: empowering girls.
