‘Slumdog Millionaire’ star Dev Patel spoke to Ryan Seacrest Monday to tackle the rumor that he and girlfriend Freida Pinto are the newest couple headed down the path of engagement.
“No….that’s rubbish,” said Patel. When asked about whether or not he is indeed dating her, he replied, “yeah… kind of.”

When Ryan jokes and says that by saying ‘kind of’ when he is in fact in a relationship, “is kind of a problem” and will get him into some trouble with the lady. Patel quickly replies by saying “No we are, we are.”

“The Last Airbender”, written, produced and directed by the talented M. Night Shyamalan, is an action-adventure fantasy film scheduled to be released on July 1, 2010, where Patel plays Prince Zuko. When asked about his character and whether he was playing a “good guy or a bad guy”, Patel responded by telling us that his character plays “a bit of both. Everyone calls him evil, but more than anything, he’s just a confused boy, bursting into manhood, struggling to find the right path.”
