Freida Pinto, the stunning the star of the sleeper hit Slumdog Millionaire, has been hiding a secret husband, a close friend of the couple has claimed.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the friend says the 24-year old Indian actress secretly married Rohan Antao in December of 2007 , but kept the wedding hush-hush because aspiring actresses in Bollywood stand a greater chance at scoring roles if they are single.
Antao is said to be "heartbroken" after Pinto ended their relationship last month, citing the pressures of her newfound fame. They had been together since 2004, when both were students at St Xavier's College in Mumbai.
The friend says "Rohan was with her throughout her years as an actress when she was not at all famous. He supported her during the filming of Slumdog and the pair even celebrated the film's success at the Toronto Film Festival together last year.
However, she just stopped calling him around the time of the Golden Globes awards, when the film started to make waves internationally. He is completely shocked at being dumped and is heartbroken."
Antao is a Mumbai-based marketing executive.
