Freida Pinto went through intense training for “Desert Dancer,” based on the true story of a secret dance company in Iran.

When she and a co-star were rehearsing, “He and I bumped heads . . . My skin cracked open and I thought I had a concussion. My vision went blurry . . . I still have the scar,” she says.

While she looked graceful on-screen, Page Six reports that at a Baccarat Hotel party after the Cinema Society screening at MoMA, she accidentally dropped and broke one of the $200 cocktail glasses.
