Dev Patel and his mother, Anita Patel, stole focus from everyone else at the Oscar 2017 red carpet. The fact that he got his mother along with him as his date for the evening made every girl want to marry him. Twitter was all sorts of crazy over these mother-son duo. In fact, what they loved the most was that his mother chose to don a sari at the event. And she looked so beautiful in the black and gold sari. She stood next to her son proudly as he was nominated for as the Best Supporting Actor for Lion. Though he lost the award to Moonlight’s Mahershala Ali, he became an instant favourite.
Dev Patel has become the most eligible and wanted bachelor after this. His mother clearly stole the limelight from him. I don’t think any other mom has created so much buzz and been given the ‘Best Dressed’ title at the Oscars. Women are willing to leave everything to marry this handsome guy and others are giving their boyfriends tips on how to be like Dev. In fact, Billy Eichner, the host of Billy On The Street, tweeted that he would also take Dev’s mother to the Oscars if he ever went to one.
