Parvez | 7 years ago | Reply I'm quite a fan of Dev Patel..... there's something genuine and endearing about him..
Lumdheeng | 7 years ago | Reply Dev Patel considers himself as British actor. He feels awkward about his Indian gene or origin when asked or told.The little boy who played the role as "Soroo"deserves an Oscar. The real mother of Soroo still works as maid unfortunately.
