London: ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ star Freida Pinto says she felt drained and exhausted after shooting the new movie ‘Trishna’ in rural India.

The 27-year-old actress, who plays the titular character and shot the film in Rajasthan, said the drama was a struggle to get through, reported Contactmusic.

"Sometimes I feel that this film has drained everything out of me. I had nothing left.

"When I shot `Slumdog Millionaire,` I felt like I was shooting in my backyard. But when I was shooting in rural India, it felt like a different world. I learned a lot, I learned to milk a cow!," she said.

’Trishna’, directed by Michael Winterbottom, is a modern-day adaptation of Thomas Hardy`s novel `Tess of the d`Urbervilles`.
