Seen in films like "Love Sex Aur Dhokha" and "Kai Po Che!", Rajkumar recently met the actress, who is making her debut in Bollywood with "NH10".
After the success of "Slumdog Millionaire", Freida carved a niche for herself in the international film ciruit and later featured in Woody Allen's "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger" and Rupert Wyatt's "Rise of the Planet of the Apes".
"I just met Freida, I was very nervous but she made me feel very comfortable. The best part is that she doesn't come with baggage of being a star in Hollywood. She is a wonderful person. I am really looking forward to work with her," said Rajkumar.
The film will start rolling by the end of March.
"The film is set in North India and it's a love story, thriller. We will be undergoing special workshops for the movie soon," said the actor
Director Navdeep Singh's "NH10" is being produced by "Udaan" fame Vikramaditya Motwane.
