London: Actress Freida Pinto has started shooting for her upcoming TV drama mini-series “Guerrilla”. The 31-year-old “Slumdog Millionaire” star will essay the role of Jas Mitra, a passionate and politically driven individual, in John Ridley’s six part limited series.
“I’m thrilled to be working with an artist like John Ridley who has written these compelling scripts filled with thoughtful and complicated characters,” Freido Pinto said in a statement.
Based on 1970s black activism in the UK, the story revolves around a radical underground cell.
The series starring Idris Elba in lead role, will also explore how Mitra’s political activism tests her romantic relationship with Marcus (Babou Ceesay), her partner in the movement.
