Slumdog Millionaire stars Dev Patel and Freida Pinto have been caught kissing during a romantic night out in Israel.
Rumours that the actors, who played childhood sweethearts in the Oscar-winning movie, are dating for real began circulating after Slumdog co-star Anil Kapoor hinted they were an item, reports Contactmusic.
Kapoor said, “When I meet them I feel there is something happening. (I think) this is the beginning of something exciting happening. They definitely make a great pair. Both of them look very good together.” However, Patel and Pinto have frequently dismissed rumours they are dating.
Pinto said: “We’re not dating, “ while 18-year-old Patel added, “No, we’re not seeing each other.” However, the British teenager recently visited Israel to see Pinto on the set of her new movie ‘Miral’, and the pair was later spotted enjoying a few tender moments during a romantic dinner.
The pictures of her lunch with Patel add weight to comments made by their Slumdog co-star Anil Kapoor, who said earlier this year that the young couple had a ‘magical chemistry’.
Asked on a radio show if there was any romance going on while they were in India, he said: ‘As I matter of fact, when I meet them I feel there is something happening.’
‘She says I have to look after him and I have to babysit him and that kind of stuff, this is the beginning of something exciting happening. They definitely make a great pair. Both of them look very good together.’
