Dev Patel’s one gesture has won him many hearts.
The actor, who was nominated for a Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Lion, took his mom with him to the biggest award show, making the audiences go aww and fall in love with him.
Dressed in a black and golden sari, Anita Patel looked regal and elegant. And her smile flashed how proud she was of her son.
The Twitterati was quick to declare her as one of the best dressed of the night, and applauded for ‘sticking to her roots and wearing a sari to the red carpet’.
And while the 26-year-old actor lost the trophy he still won a lot of hearts. Girls and young women gushed about him on social media, instantly declaring him the most eligible bachelor.
Given his age and career progress, his future is bright. The actor first came into limelight when he starred in the Danny Boyle directed Slumdog Millionaire, that won several big awards and brought Patel and Frieda Pinto into the most promising young actors list.
