Actress Freida Pinto has been dating her current boyfriend Dev Patel since the two of them met each other on the set of the 2008 hit movie Slumdog Millionaire but the two of them have yet to reappear together on the big screen. However, Freida has admitted that she would not rule out working with Dev Patel again but it would have to be some sort of dark comedy.
Pinto explained, "I don't think something like a Slumdog could be repeated by the two of us, only because the expectations that were built on that project were so high. And I know that it would be difficult to live up to those expectations. “If it were a comedy, or maybe a dark comedy, I'd be interested in trying that out with him.”
She added. “He's not just a terrific actor – what many people don't know if they've not met him is that he has an amazing sense of comic timing; and a comic timing that doesn't hurt people – just a very light-hearted way that keeps you laughing throughout the day." With a budget of just $15m, Slumdog Millionaire has gone on to gross over $362m worldwide.
