Freida Pinto and Dev Patel Over?
All eyes were on Freida Pinto and Dev Patel as they made their
way down the red carpet at the Doha Tribeca Film Festival last
night (Tuesday 25 October).
The pair were in town so that Frieda could promote her new film
Black Gold, the hotly anticipated Hollywood movie about two rival
Arab tribes’ war over oil in the 1930s.
Last week, UK newspaper The Daily Mail reported that the couple,
who met on the set of Danny Boyle’s hit movie Slumdog Millionaire, “
didn't exactly look like they were enjoying each other's company”
while on a night out in London.
Speculation among gathering press camped out in Doha further
fuelled rumours that their relationship was on the rocks and the
world’s media waited with baited breath to see whether the couple
would walk the red carpet together.
Frieda and Dev’s Red Carpet Arrival
Around 30 minutes later than scheduled, Freida Pinto and Dev
Patel finally arrived on the red carpet, preceded by men in
traditional dress displaying falcons no less! Freida and Dev’s
first steps, though hand-in-hand, were brisk, and after a few
moments Dev began to look distracted and even a little
uncomfortable as fans focused their attentions on Freida.
Frieda and Dev’s Sharp Exit
Perhaps more telling than their arrival was Freida and Dev’s
exit. We caught the couple beating a hasty retreat just moments
after arriving without even watching the film!
