Freida Pinto is reportedly so love-struck with her Slumdog Millionaire co-star Dev Patel that she could not even take her eyes off him while she was at the Britannia Awards at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. The 25-year-old actress was surrounded by a host of admirers, but she batted them away only to focus her attention on Patel, New York Post reported, adding, "She only had eyes for Dev. They look like they are totally in love". According to sources, Freida turned away many hopeful suitors to be with her 6-year junior beau Dev Patel.

Danny Boyle, the director of the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire was also present at the event. He said, "I'm delighted for them, they seem to be real soul mates... and I'm sure more than that." He was surprised to know that the onscreen couple was also dating in real life, as he had no inkling of an impending romance between them despite working together for months while shooting for the Academy Award winning film.

According to reports, Pinto has completed her work for the film “Miral”, a Franco-Israeli production directed by Oscar-nominated director Julian Schnabel. Pinto has also been cast in “You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger”, a 2010 film written and directed by Woody Allen, and which co-stars Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Anupam Kher and Naomi Watts. According to The Daily Telegraph, Pinto is currently the highest paid actress in Bollywood.
