'Normal-looking' Patel Dated His Slumdog Millionaire Co-star for Six Years

The actor was in a relationship with his Slumdog Millionaire co-star Freida Pinto until 2014. The couple dated from 2008 and broke up after six years together. Their breakup was said to be amicable.

In 2015, the actor reflected upon one of the funny incidents while dating Pinto. At one of the fashion shows he attended in London, photographer Mario Testino bluntly asked Patel why a beautiful young woman like Pinto was with an average-looking guy like him! 

 I was sitting there, and this fellow says, ‘Are you the one dating Freida Pinto?’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, I guess.’” He gives an embarrassed shrug and says: ‘Why? How? Why is she dating you? She’s so beautiful.’ And I say, She is!’ And then he says: ‘But you’re so, ugh, so normal-looking.’
