The Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto who is becoming a part of Hollywood with her two upcoming films with some of the most respected directors, now stands alongside big names like Cherie Blair, Nita Ambani, Priyanka Chopra, Sania Mirza and many others in supporting the foundation named 'Nanhi Kali', an initiative of the famous business tycoon Anand Mahindra. The foundation has started a website www.101women.org that will carry Freida's bio-data along with her photograph. She would be involved with the foundation to provide free education to 1,00,000 girls across India by 2010. Nanhi Kali aims to rope in the support of “101 most successful women in the world”, out of which one is Pinto.

With Freida’s fan following and global appeal in the west, the foundation hopes she could easily manage to pull in many celebrities who would donate for the cause, according to Sheetal Mehta, President, Mahindra Foundation Trust.
