Hollywood actress Freida Pinto will star as the lead in a new drama series titled 'Spy Princess' which is based on British secret agent Noor Inayat Khan.

Khan, also known as Nora Baker, served as the Special Operations Executive during World War II, spying on the Nazis.

The series will be directed by Anand Tucker and produced by Andy Paterson and Pinto.

The series is based on 'Spy Princess: The Life of Noor Inayat Khan' by Shrabani Basu.
