A star in Hollywood, Dev Patel has a huge fan base in India as well. The ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ actor has got thumbs up for the nerve-racking trailer of his latest film ‘Hotel Mumbai’. The film is a tale of humanity and unlikely heroes who recount the 26/11 terrorist attack at the Taj Mahal Palace hotel in Mumbai, way back in 2008.

Dev was very keen to come to India to promote this film. He had made his plans along with the team to promote ‘Hotel Mumbai’ in the city as it would have created more impact. However his plans went into kaput for reasons best known to him. He has his other commitments following which he couldn’t come to India.

Nonetheless, despite all this, the trailer has created quite a buzz and Dev is trying his best to push this film by giving telephonic interviews and spread the word.

The major problem with the film is that it released last year in the US and it is also available on varied OTT platforms. That’s why a majority of the people who would have been interested in watching the real-life tale, have already seen it in one or the other web platforms. So much before the film could hit theatres in India, it’s readily available to the Indian audience on their smartphones. That will be majorly affecting the film’s collections.

Directed by Anthony Maras, the film also stars Hollywood star Armie Hammer and Anupam Kher in lead roles. The project is set to hit the screens in India on November 29.
