Actually co-star Anil Kapoor who's also become quite media savvy these days says that they may be dating in real life. Reportedly, Kapoor told an American radio station that the two, who play childhood sweethearts who find love in and out of slums, had a 'magical chemistry'.
Kapoor told Ryan Seacrest's Morning Show on Los Angeles-based KIIS FM, "As a matter of fact, when I meet them I feel there is something happening, But she says 'I have to look after him' and 'I have to baby sit him' and that kind of stuff... (I think) this is the beginning of something exciting happening." He also told the Daily Telegraph, "They definitely make a great pair. Both of them look very good together."
In fact the 24-year-old Pinto and London-based Patel, 18, were spotted recently sharing Oreo cheesecake at a bakery in Los Angeles. They apparently became close as they travelled the world promoting their film.
Pinto who's been a model in the past split with her fiance last month. There were also some rumours that she also married this guy in late 2007 and reportedly dumped him after the movie started making news worldwide.
