Dev Patel continues to be remembered for his job in Slumdog Millionaire, after which not one of his movies could work wonders with the Indian viewers. Now, we find out the Indian origin actor from Britain is also uninterested in working in Bollywood. It’s heard that Dev evidently refused director Farah Khan’s next.
As a tabloid reports, Freida Pinto’s boyfriend, had nearly signed an Indian movie on his current visit to the country. But…
Dev Patel was reportedly offered Farah Khan’s Happy New Year — a film having an ensemble star cast that may also include Shahrukh Khan. Even so, the actor turned the director down, stating the reason he’s interested in doing offbeat films & doesn’t wish to be a part of Bollywood mainstream.
We get it! Like his girlfriend Freida Pinto, Dev Patel, also, is eager to do more Hollywood stuff. But a list of forgetful movies can damage one’s career.
Dev’s last movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which released in 2011, had been a dud at Indian box office despite great reviews.
