You remember Slumdog Millionaire’s Dev Patel, star of the new movie Lion? Yeah, he got super hot, and everyone is talking about it on social media

It’s the classic story of average bear transforming into a beautiful swan…

And then there was the goofy Miles Teller, who started out as the sidekick in the reboot of Footloose, then came back with a rig for his boxing biopic “Bleed For This”...

Now, it’s Dev Patel’s turn.

The star, who shot to fame playing the lead in Slumdog Millionaire, and playing the unlucky-in-love Anwar in Skins, is sparking conversation on social media.

It all started when his film Lion was released upon the world...
