Melbourne, Feb 25 (ANI): Slumdog Millionaire beauty Freida Pinto has blasted rumours suggesting that she is romancing her co-star Dev Patel, branding the 18-year-old actor a “little boy”.
When asked if the pair is dating, Freida, 24, said: “No we are not. We”re not dating, no.
When quizzed again, Freida added: “Like I said, the little boy in the film - he’’s a kid.”
Dev also dismissed speculation, saying: “I thought she was going to say something else. But of course, no, we”re not seeing each other.”
Earlier, Dev and Freida’’s Slumdog Millionaire co-star Anil Kapoor had hinted that something was cooking between the lead pair, reports The Age.
Also on Valentines day the duo were reportedly spotted looking at rings in a London high street jeweller.
Over the weekend, Freida’’s ex-fiance Rohan Antao, said she had left him heartbroken after she fell for Dev.
Rohan, 24, said: “Frieda is infatuated with Dev. I don”t know if they were having a sexual relationship but if I came face to face with him I would have things to say.
“She ended it with me after getting close to Dev Patel. Now everywhere I go I see them on billboards. I am devastated.”
Rohan claims Freida broke off their 16-month relationship in a phone call from Los Angles in January, while promoting her film. (ANI)
