Actor Freida Pinto was excited to see her film YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER, which ran to a packed house at International Film Festival of India (IFFI) on Sunday.

Sharing her joy with the media here on Monday, she said, "It was an honor to be part of a film directed by Woody Allan."

Talking about her character in the film, Freida said: "I played a troubled character, a girl not knowing what she wants to do with her life, something which we all go through at some point of time."

Rebutting statements attributed to her about not being interested in Bollywood films, Freida said she has been misquoted and she would very much like to work not only in Bollywood, but also Indian cinema if the script is good.

She said it's wrong to typecast Bollywood and named films like DEV D, OMKARA, KHOSLA KA GHOSLA to stress her point.

Talking about her future projects, the SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE girl said she is working on three projects-IMMORTALS by an Indian director Tarsem Singh, RISE OF APES (on animal testing) to be directed by Rupert Wyatt and BLACK GOLD to be shot in Tunisia by French director Jean-Jacques Annaud.

The film, YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER, tickled the funny bone of the audience during its screening at IFFI.
