When it was first announced that Freida Pinto and Dev Patel had started dating one another, there were a lot of people who were very sceptical about the relationship, as they saw Freida as being out of Dev's league, not only in terms of looks but also in terms of talent. Many thought that Pinto would go on to become a Hollywood star, while Patel would struggle to land the big roles and the two would eventually drift apart.
That has certainly not been the case, as Freida Pinto has not soared to Hollywood stardom at the rate that we all expected, while Dev Patel has continued to land some interesting roles, putting in some impressive performances along the way. So, here we are, over five years since they first started dating and Dev Patel and Freida Pinto are still together, and they still seem very happy together.
Freida Pinto recently appeared as a guest on the celebrity chat show Koffee with Karan, where she spoke a little about her relationship with Dev Patel. One thing that Freida did say was that she would not want Dev to ever work on a project with Deepika Padukone, as the actor finds the Bollywood star very sexy. Nice to see that Freida Pinto has a good sense of humour.
As for her acting career, Freida Pinto has a few projects lined up for the coming year or so, the biggest of which would have to be Knights of Cups, which sees Freida sharing the big screen with the likes of Teresa Palmer, Christian Bale, Joel Kinnaman, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett and Imogen Poots, to name just a few. Knights of Cups is written and directed by Terrence Malick and is expected to open later in the year.
