Did Dev Patel turn down Farah's 'Happy New Year'?
He may have played the protagonist in Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire but Dev Patel is more known for being Freida Pinto's boyfriend.
A birdie chirped to say that the British-born had almost signed an Indian film on his recent trip to the country.
Sources say Dev was offered Farah Khan’s Happy New Year but the actor turned the director down. Apparently, Dev wants to do offbeat cinema and wants to steer clear of commercial films.
Well, all we can say is that something is better than nothing, no?
