Can Freida Pinto Beat Radhika Apte As The Popular Spy Noor Inayat Khan? - EXCLUSIVE
After Radhika Apte, it is Freida  Pinto’s turn to play  the  celebrated  Indian-British spy  Noor Inayat Khan from World War 2. Freida will play  the lead in a series  based on  author Shrabani Basu's book Spy Princess: The Life of Noor Inayat Khan. Freida  is also the executive producer of the series.

This career  move is a bold one. Her last release Love Wedding Repeat  was a miss. And  in her other recent release Hilbilly Elegy she does not have a significant role. With her international career almost frozen the decision to produce a series  that revolves around Freida looks like a career-saving device. However the spy Noor has already been played brilliantly by Radhika Apte in  the  well-conceived film Spies Like Us. Why do we need an encore when it’s  already been done as best as possible?
