The 89th Academy Awards witnessed the Hollywood celebrities dazzling at the red carpet. From the ever gracious Nicole Kidman to the sweet and simple Felicity Jones, and from Leslie Mann who looked ever bit of Belle in her canary yellow gown, to Kristen Dunst, who looked ravishing in her black gown, the red carpet mirrored the night sky. Amid all the glamour, there was one celebrity that just took our breaths away not just by his looks but by the way he walked down the red carpet.
We are talking about the English actor of Indian descent– Dev Patel, who walked on the red carpet hand in hand with his mother Anita Patel, who looked every bit of a celebrity in her black saree. The 27-year-old Patel, who wore a white jacket, brought his mother as his date at the Oscars 2017 and the duo looked just adorable!
While Patel was being interviewed by E!, the host Ryan Seacrest asked him to call his mother, who proudly stood by his side as she walked through the crowds.
Patel, who has also worked in award-winning movies including Slumdog Millionaire, had been nominated as the best actor in a supporting role for Lion. He played the character of Saroo Brierley, who gets separated from his family during childhood only to be shipped to Tasmania, where is he adopted by an Australian couple Sue and John Brierley (played by Nicole Kidman and David Wenham). He later uses Google Maps to find his way back to his mother.
Patel however, lost the award to Mahershala Ali.
