Dev Patel took his first step in Hollywood in the 2008 film Slumdog Millionaire. The movie was such a huge hit that he got to attend the Academy Awards just after his first film and the film went on to win eight out of 10 Academy Awards that it was nominated for! Now, nine years later, Patel starred in Lion…and made his way to the Oscars red carpet again.
While the film failed to clinch any awards at the Oscars, Patel won hearts at the ceremony. And the reason was his date for the evening. Patel chose none other than his mom to accompany him at the awards’ night, and not only the stars at the Oscars gushed about it, Twitterati poured heaps of compliments for the actor.
Clad in a black-and-gold sari, his mom Anita Patel looked stunning in her desi avatar, while Patel looked stylish in a cream blazer and a black bow-tie. The duo smiled throughout the ceremony. With the pictures floating on social media networking sites, people just couldn’t ignore the pair’s bond and showered their love endlessly.
