Slumdog Millionaire stars split after six years

FREIDA Pinto and Dev Patel have reportedly split.   The couple - who met when they both starred in 2008 film 'Slumdog Millionaire' - called time on their relationship a "while" ago after being together for almost six years.  

A source told Us Weekly magazine: "Dev and Freida have broken up. They have been done for a while."  

Rumours began to circulate the pair's romance was dead when Freida celebrated her 30th birthday in October without Dev, 24.  

The 'Immortals' actress is now said to be ready to move on from the actor and is considering entering the dating game again.  

Another source told the publication: "Freida is single and happy. Friends are setting her up."  

Dev fell in love with Freida on the set of Danny Boyle's Oscar-winning 'Slumdog Millionaire', the movie which made stars of them, admitting he thought she was his "soul mate" before they had even started dating.  

'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' star said: "We're soul mates because we're both in this surreal situation. She is very beautiful ... I haven't got a girlfriend but Freida, my co-star, is gorgeous."   

Several months after shooting wrapped on 'Slumdog Millionaire', Freida broke off her engagement to her former publicist Rohan Antao in January 2009 to start dating Dev.
