Slumdog Millionaire Movie Hero Dev Patel Junagadh Visit 2011

Just 20 years old the winner of 2009 Academy Award Slumdog Millionaire Movie Actor Dev Patel visited Junagadh City with his mother Anita Patel before few months ago, meet to media persons at hotel in this Historical City and said that he was dismayed when he went to Dharavi slum for the shooting of the film.

He is basically from Gujarat, so we can say him “Gujju Person”. He also said that,

“The aim of portraying the dire poverty of India in his Oscar-winning movie was not to show the country in poor light. Instead, the intertwining theme of the Hollywood movie was optimism and to leave people thinking over what can potentially spring out of seemingly such a hopeless situation.”

“My first impression was how depressed the residents of the locality are! There was nothing but hardships and inconvenience there. However, I was amazed by their unity and cheerfulness in the hell of adversity”

“There is a vast pool of talent in India and the West is acknowledging it now.”

He has come to India with the hope that he will be able to help people here.

Later in the day, He and his mother visited Gir National Park Sanctuary and watched lions.

He also visited historical places like Narsinh Mehta Choro (residence), Uparkot, and Darbar Museum.

Both these Mother and Son have been invited for the visit by Junagadh-based Dr DP Chikhalia who is a friend of Dev’s father.
