'Slumdog' sweethearts caught smooching

A real-life relationship for 'Slumdog Millionaire' lovebirds Dev Patel and Freida Pinto is blossoming - the couple were spotted kissing during a romantic night out in Israel.

A real-life relationship for 'Slumdog Millionaire' lovebirds Dev Patel and Freida Pinto is blossoming - the couple were spotted kissing during a romantic night out in Israel.

The actors, who played childhood sweethearts in the Oscar-winning movie, have frequently dismissed rumours they are dating for real, even after 'Slumdog' co-star Anil Kapoor hinted they were an item.

Kapoor, who played a corrupt gameshow host in the film, recently said: "When I meet them I feel there is something happening. (I think) this is the beginning of something exciting happening. They definitely make a great pair. Both of them look very good together."

His comments prompted Pinto, 24, to insist: " We're not dating," while 18-year-old Patel added, "No, we're not seeing each other."

But the British teenager recently jetted to Tel Aviv, Israel to visit Pinto on the set of her new movie 'Miral', and the pair were later spotted enjoying a few tender moments during a romantic dinner.
