Dev Patel shoots ‘Wedding Guest’ in Jaipur
A narrow street in Jaipur, lined with vegetable, jewellery shops and a few bikes served as one of the sets for Indian-origin British actor Dev Patel-starrer The Wedding Guest.
Patel, who rose to fame with Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire in 2008, was spotted here on Thursday shooting for the Michael Winterbottom directorial in a pair of blue jeans, grey shirt with rolled-up sleeves and brown shoes.
In one of the images captured, he is smiling and interacting with a crew member.
Patel was also caught looking intense while holding on to his black-and-grey backpack and walking on a busy street of the Pink City.
Locals stepped out to check out the shooting as the cameras rolled.
The film’s team, including Indian actress Radhika Apte, started shooting for the movie earlier this month. Patel had earlier visited India for his Hollywood projects Slumdog Millionaire, Lion and Hotel Mumbai.
Earlier in an interview he had said that he wanted the world to “embrace stories from India”.
Patel started his journey as an actor by essaying a Muslim teenager Anwar in American TV show Skins, after which he bagged the role of Jamal Malek in the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire. He also played Sonny Kapoor in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Saroo Brierley in Lion and Arjun in Hotel Mumbai.
