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."

Freida Pinto's Screen Career Takes Off

Originally posted 03/26/2009 06:15AM

After captivating audiences in the Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire, Freida Pinto is on a roll, racking up plum job assignments with top-notch directors from Woody Allen to Julian Schnabel.

For Allen, Variety reports, the 21-year-old Indian-born model-turned-actress – who also is being talked as a possible Bond Girl opposite 007 star Daniel Craig – will costar with Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin and Anthony Hopkins in an as-yet-untitled film to be shot in London.

Before that, the trade paper also reports, she will start filming Miral on April 19 in Israel and the Palestinian territories for The Diving Bell and the Butterfly director Schnabel. Adapted from Rula Jebreal's book about Hind Husseini, who founded an orphanage in Jerusalem in the wake of the 1948 partition of Palestine and the creation of the state of Israel, the movie features a screenplay by Schnabel.

The Mumbai-born beauty and star of Slumdog Millionaire has reportedly been approached by Barbara Broccoli, producer of the James Bond films, to do a screen test opposite Daniel Craig.

According to the UK’s Sun newspaper, the Bond team have had their eye on the 24-year-old actress for some time. "Freida came to the attention of the Bond team when they were casting Quantum of Solace," a source told the newspaper, but "she was too young at the time to have a part as a love interest for a secret agent."
