Patel And Pinto Romantically involved Confirms Dev’s Mum
London: ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ star Dev Patel’s mum has confirmed her son’s off-screen love with Freida Pinto.
Patel and Pinto have always denied dating each other but the pair was recently caught enjoying an intimate lunch date in Israel, where Pinto, 24, is filming on location.
And Patel’s mum Anita says she is really pleased to see the two in love.
“First it was the film and now everything else seems to have slotted into place,” the Mirror quoted Anita as saying.
“Life can’t get any better for him. Freida is really beautiful and I am really happy for them. Yes, we knew he was flying to Israel to see her,” she added.
The real life love story is said to have started on the set of Danny Boyle’s multi-Oscar-winning film.
And they have become increasingly close since travelling the world together to promote the movie.
Freida Pinto A Perfectionist
Freida Pinto wants it perfect. So while interpreting the character for her next movie ‘Miral’, the actress decided to take Arabic classes to get her dialogues right.
The Slumdog Millionaire actress took two-week-long tuitions to learn Arabic language. It’s heard that Freida’s role requires her to speak Arabic in some parts of the movie, as she plays a woman who speaks English with Arabic accent.
When Freida heard about her character, she insisted Julian Schnabel, the Oscar-nominated director, to get a private tutor so that she can learn the language and perfect her dialogue delivery. The actress is now in Jerusalem, shooting for the movie.
Miral’ is based on a book written by Rula Jebreal about the account of Hind Husseini’s effort to establish an orphanage in Jerusalem after the 1948 partition of Palestine when Israel was re-created.
According to reports, the role of Freida in the movie is very challenging and the lady wanted to add perfection to her character and hence prepared herself prior to the shoot by learning Arabic.
Freida has also signed a plum project with Hollywood director Woody Allen where she will be seen next to the actors like Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Antonio Banderas, Naomi Watts, and Nicole Kidman.
