Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel's mother found out about her son's engagement on the Internet. Only he never popped the question.

"I was like, Mum, 'I didn't [get engaged] – trust me,' " the actor says, quashing widespread rumors that he and longtime girlfriend Freida Pinto plan to tie the knot. "Nothing's happened. Everything is fine. I'm just shooting a film."

But the buzz grew so strong, Patel's mother was forced to clear up rumors herself.

"My mum will go to work and [have to] explain to everyone why they have written that her son is going to get engaged," he tells PEOPLE, "and got a wedding ring, and how it's all not true."
