you know what kiddo... the so-called theory of 'relativity' applies everywhere in our daily life... sorry, but i do live in a real world, hence i tend to 'relate' it in such a way... TongueTongue
 
i honestly don't care whether someone disagrees... that is their prerogative and it's fine by me... if 'opinions' changed how things worked in real life, wouldn't that be something... Wink
 
so the 'should be' or 'could be' kinda don't matter... what matters is 'what is'... and such things would come up when people don't tend to give credit where it's due...!
 
yet again, you can't look at the world through a bubble... well, you could, but that's your choice... everyone is free to choose their way... i would (and i don't care what others say) always look at the complete picture...  just how i am... not that i have ever cared about a stamp of approval on how i view the world so far, i certainly don't need that from unknown faces on the internet... TongueTongueTongue
 
and i believe all your earlier questions have been answered... TongueTongue  agree, disagree, doesn't matter... debating is only effective when the others actually LISTEN (in this case, READ and UNDERSTAND) what others are saying, otherwise it's useless to repeat the same points over and over again... asking repeatedly why use SDM, when obviously it's not the only thing that's keeping her in news, is kinda silly, no...?
 
and i'll tell you what double standards is... people going gung ho over the most mediocre of hollywood stars and nitpicking everything about the indian actors, because it's tough to give the credit... brilliant acting is quite obviously not the criteria to measure one's success... there is no rocket science behind it, really...!  TongueTongue
 
and it's a FACT that a lot of desis are the ones who are most critical of our own stars... ghar ki murghi daal baraabar hona and all that you see...!
 
and i've never condemned sonam/katrina/deepika, as you put it... my standards certainly do NOT change, because of my own convenience...

Since when is criticizing someone equivalent to putting them down? If all you wanted was people to stream into this thread fanning Frieda's "achievements," you 
are better off in one of those fan clubs, not here. 

And who says that only Indians find her overrated? I have a whole lot of white friends who loved SDM but don't find Frieda all that. So there.

Oh absolutely. I don't jump into discussions to convince the other party that I'm right and they're wrong. It would be ridiculous on my part to expect someone to change the way they think by merely sharing a few thoughts in an online forum. I am definitely not looking for converts here. In fact, it's the difference in our opinions that stimulate the discussions here.

Apparently, your approach is starkly different from mine and I can accept as well as tolerate the difference.  But you are casting aspersions on my way of looking at things by saying that I look at the world through a bubble. I can give your viewpoint a name too if I wanted to but I won't because I understand that each person has his own personal perspective and choice and there's no right or wrong way of looking at things.

Since I don't keep tabs on Frieda's life, I wouldn't know what is still keeping her career intact. What I know of her work so far is her appearance in SDM which I found pretty average. It opened the doors to hollywood for her, which is understandable. But it's about time she gave something new to people to talk about. To people who don't care about celebrities beyond their movies. But yes, you're right, I do believe that Freida must be doing all the right things at the right places to still be on the limelight without contributing much in terms of acting. So it's not that I am denying her credit where it's due. 
Also, ideally speaking, if you've taken up acting as your career, your acting is supposed to prompt that hype, not something else. Of course, that's not to say that I support other actors who draw attention without acting. Just that since we're talking about Freida here, it's her who gets put on the chopping block, not someone else. 
 
and it's a FACT that a lot of desis are the ones who are most critical of our own stars... ghar ki murghi daal baraabar hona and all that you see...!

Oh, that was just an observation - the amount of flak Kat/Deep/Sonam receive here for their lack of acting skills. It wasn't directed at you in particular.

If Freida had not played her cards right and had rejected every offer to be on red carpet and talk show interviews, she would not be around.You crediting Frieda's success to SDM alone is akin to someone crediting a student's success to only the professors' recommendation. A lot of factors are involved in getting into a good school/program etc, your professor's recommendation alone did not get you into the medical school, your grades, your MCAT scores, your medical experience all of that count. Likewise, if Freida did not have that X factor, she would be long gone despite SDM's success.


Likewise, I have a problem with people who credit Kareena's success to her Kapoor tag, Aishwarya's to her beauty queen title etc. We all get an initial boost somewhere, that definitely does not mean we owe all our success and failure to that start point alone. 




If you go over my earlier posts, that's kind of sort of what I am getting at too. If Frieda hasn't fizzled out, it's because she is playing her cards right. Her staying power in hollywood is a result of her appearances at red carpets, ads, interviews, etc. and not because of her acting in SDM. I agree that she's got something for still going strong, but for someone who doesn't care much about these celebrities beyond their movies, it only makes sense that I term her overrated, don't you think?

I liked Freida in Slumdog and I do enjoy the fact that she, an Indian woman, has made an effective impact in Hollywood but I hope that she sustains her fame beyond being the Slumdog wonder. And in order for her to do that, she has to do more films and let those films do the talking instead. I don't want her to disappear; she dresses superbly, she knows how to look glamorous, she's never really OTT in her actions, and she even has a bearable American "accent" LOL

Hey there, koolchick. =) Talk about being in the right place at the right time.LOL 
You tell'em, girl. That's exactly what I wanted to say - let your work do the talking whether you're Indian or Italian or French.LOL
