Dev & Freida: Toilet tourism

MUMBAI: Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire has its place in history. But here’s a piece of news that will have you guffawing.

A guest to a suburban five-star hotel in Mumbai was told by a toilet attendant that she would show her a loo in the place where the lead pair of the film Freida Pinto and Dev Patel reportedly locked themselves in. Yeah, Freida and Dev were both at the same hotel when they were promoting the movie. A year ago, there was also very little known about the growing friendship between these two actors, who have now made it big on the world map. But the attendant, who obviously has a great mind for detail, was heard telling the lady-guest that while a top-notch television show hostess cooled her heels at one of the conference rooms in the hotel, waiting for Freida and Dev to show up, while these two young actors were playing hide-n-seek.
