Dev Patel frightened of blockbuster roles

Monday, December 05, 2016

Indian-origin actor Dev Patel said he is scared to say yes to a big budget film because his last blockbuster movie was critically savaged.

The 26-year-old actor was thrust into Hollywood stardom in 2008 after starring in Danny Boyle's Oscar-winning film 'Slumdog Millionaire', and quickly gained a role in M Night Shyamalan's USD 150 million fantasy adventure 'The Last Airbender'.

Upon its release in 2010, the film was derided by critics and won five of Hollywood's least coveted prizes, the Golden Raspberry Awards. Patel said his experiences on set have made him wary of agreeing to star in blockbusters.

"I know what I'm afraid of playing: those big studio movies. After Slumdog, I did a film that was not well received at all (The Last Airbender).” "The budget of Slumdog was like the budget of the craft services of this movie. And I completely felt overwhelmed by the experience. I felt like I wasn't being heard," said Patel.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You could be running behind schedule in a certain assignment. In your anxiety to get things done in a hurry you could end up over looking some important details. Your plans to make up for lost time at home could also run into some rough weather because of the attitude of a family member. Try not to be overly sensitive with loved ones but look on the positive side of all that you have. Perhaps you are taking a lot for granted.
