Freida Pinto to host pre-Oscar party to promote girl child education

Freida Pinto, 'Slumdog Millionaire' star, will host a special pre-Oscar party where she will promote the issue of girl child education.

A week-long celebration leading up to the Academy Awards by Vanity Fair magazine is one of the most attended and sought after celebratory events and the 28-year-old beauty is the first Indian origin actress to host the event.

"When Vanity Fair approached Freida Pinto to co-host the pre Oscar party with them she was more than happy to align with them and bring more attention to the 10X10 Girl Rising initiative. She has always felt committed to this cause and wouldn't miss out on this opportunity," her spokesperson said in a statement.
