He entered the movie industry at a young age of 18 and amazed the audience with his acting skills in the Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire. His portrayal of a chaiwala participating in a fictional version of Kaun Banega Crorepati, won hearts all over the world. Girls were swooning over this utterly-cute Dev Patel who has made India proud.
The Indian-origin British actor wowed us with his debut film and since then has never looked back. Patel has always associated himself with quality projects and that’s what sets him apart. On his 27th birthday, let’s take a look at the transformation of this cute-looking boy into a hottie.
His career started in his native United Kingdom, with a role in the hit teen drama, Skins. Having a soft corner for Dev, we often forget that his ethnicity is one of the only few things Indian about him, as his roots are in London and Kenya. His recent film, Lion won him lots of accolades as well for his impeccable performance.
Fame was not the only gift that Slumdog Millionaire gave Dev; he also found love with his movie co-star, Freida Pinto. The couple was often spotted hanging out together and they were almost like the current Selena Gomez-Weeknd. They dated each other for six long years and then headed splitsville.
Dev is not what you would call a conventional Hollywood hero. He does not believe in jumping at each and every script that comes his way. He believes in working in films he can instantly connect with and fortunately, his choice of films so far has been perfect.
As far as his body transformation goes, the sincere actor has been hitting the gym regularly and his physique says it all. Check out the pictures below if any proof is needed.
Not only this, but Dev is a perfect family man. How do we know this? Well, this year at the Oscars he walked the red carpet with his beautiful mother and was continuously by her side.
After his impressive work in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Chappie, The Man Who Knew Infinity, we would only now want to see him in more romantic roles. Right girls?
We hope this year we get to see more of this handsome actor on the big screen and he continues to entertain us with his hatke roles. Wishing you a very happy birthday Dev Patel.
