‘I’d love to work with Freida’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - SAPNA MATHUR

In­dian-born Bri­tish ac­tor Dev Pa­tel (right) is in Goa for the In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val of In­dia (IFFI) for the Asia pre­miere of his film, The Man Who Knew Infinity. Based on math­e­ma­ti­cian Srini­vasa Ra­manu­jan’s life, the movie opened the event. “I think our in­ten­tion was al­ways to bring Ra­manu­jan’s story back home for the In­dian pub­lic. I hope the crowds will be moved by his jour­ney and strug­gle,” he says.

When asked if he’ll ever ven­ture into Bol­ly­wood, Pa­tel replies, “Some peo­ple have of­fered me roles but noth­ing yet has really struck a chord. I don’t want my voice dubbed, as it’ll take away from the per­for­mance.”

And for those won­der­ing if Pa­tel plans to work with ex-girl­friend Freida Pinto in a film again, the ac­tor says, “Yeah, if the roles are right, ab­so­lutely. She’s tal­ented, and has a lot to of­fer to the world.”
