For the first time, Slumdog Millionaire actress Freida Pinto has confessed that she’s in love with Dev Patel. So much newsprint has been used up speculating about Freida’s love life. That she dumped her Mumbai-based fiancé after the release of the film was confirmed by the man himself, but neither Freida nor her ‘Slumdog’ co-star Dev Patel came clear about their relationship, even as Anil Kapoor , who played the quiz show host in the film, said in February that he suspected that something was going on between Dev and Freida.
The rumours of a brewing romance between them were all but confirmed when the two were spotting cozying up at a restaurant in Israel and shopping for a ring in London.Even Dev’s mom could not keep the secret and revealed to a tabloid that she was happy about Dev and Freida and that they looked good together.
Now, Freida has broken her silence and confirmed that her friendship with Dev has reached another level – love.“The friendship blossomed after the film, it got even stronger. This is all new to us,” the Sun quoted her as saying.
