The “Slumdog Millionaire” star Freida Pinto, who was believed to be part of the 63rd Cannes International Film Festival, will not be attending the event owing to shooting commitments. The actress was likely to walk the red carpet with the starring of “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger” directed by Woody Allen.

A statement is released from her spokesperson that this is to verify that Freida Pinto unfortunately will not be attending the Cannes film festival as she is shooting for ‘Immortals’ in Canada. Her film ‘You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger’ directed by Woody Allen will be premiering at Cannes.

“Immortals” directed by Tarsem Singh is scheduled to release in 2011. The Cannes Film Festival opens May 12.
