Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto 'dumped her secret husband

The star of Slumdog Millionaire has been hiding a secret husband whom she ditched after the film became a hit, it was claimed today.Freida Pinto, 24, is said to have married Rohan Antao at a ceremony in Goa in December 2007 but last month ended their relationship. The couple were previously thought only to have been engaged.

Their relationship appears to have foundered in the wake of Slumdog Millionaire's success. Pinto, who plays the main love interest, was nominated for a Bafta and the film won a Screen Actors Guild Award for outstanding performance by a cast.It is claimed that Mr Antao, a Mumbai-based executive, supported Pinto during filming but 'she just stopped calling him' at the time of the Golden Globes this year, according to reports today

"He is completely shocked at being dumped and is heartbroken'' a friend said...The Times of India reported a friend saying''they were deeply in love with each other. Rohan and Freida had decided to keep their marriage a secret till they felt ready to talk about it openly. Even though she has dumped her husband now, he is not the kind who will go out and speak against her."

Her agent in India, Meenakshi Gehani, said last night ''We do not want to comment. However, if she is married then whoever is claiming it should produce a marriage certificate."
