Frieda Pinto blames Bollywood's "tardiness" as she opts out of NH10

Frieda Pinto has opted out of her mainstream Bollywood debut, blaming the industry's infamous "tardiness".

The 'Slumdog Millionaire' star, who has carved a successful acting and modelling career in the West and has worked for filmmakers like Woody Allen, Julian Schnabel, Rupert Wyatt and Michael Winterbottom, reportedly pulled out of the project - titled NH10 - prior to flying off to Cannes after the project had been "inexplicably" delayed since November 2012, , according to the Mumbai Mirror.

Ironically, the film, a thriller in which Pinto was slated to play a detective, is being produced by Phantom Pictures, the new production house set up by filmmakers Anurag Kashyap, Vickramaditya Motwane, Vikas Bahl and Madhu Mantena as an alternative to the major Bollywood studios and industry conventions.

The Mirror quoted a friend of the star as saying: "Frieda was irritated with the tardiness of the producers, even though she was quite excited about doing the film."

Reports say Phantom had repeatedly delayed the project - which was also set to star 'Kai Po Che' actor Rajkumar Yadav - since its' original filming date of November 12 and had promised to get production underway on March 25 but had postponed the latest date without explaining the delay to Pinto.

The final straw for the actress had come after producers had postponed production again to June.

The friend told the Mirror, the delays had been particularly grating for Pinto as the actress had "roped in international financiers for the project".

Phantom Pictures however, has opted to take a more diplomatic tone with the entire fiasco. 

Vikramaditya Motwane told the Mirror: "We had to shift the shoot dates.  Unfortunately, Freida could not accommodate the revised schedule in her calendar."

According to reports, the producers have decided to replace Freida with the far more 'commercial' Sonam Kapoor.

In the meantime, Pinto will soon be seen in 'Desert Dancer', a biopic directed by Richard Raymond about banned Iranian dancer-turned-activist Afshin Ghaffarian.
