Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel has a chance to redeem his floundering position after The Last Airbender faux pas earlier this year. Patel is all set to star in a film titled The Commuter along with sex diva, Pamela Anderson, reports The Mail.

The Commuter is to be shot by a mobile HD of a prominent cell phone brand. The short film, to be released online after a London premiere, also features Gossip Girl actor Ed Westwick.

The rumour mills are abuzz with reports that “ Patel is all set to make a huge jump into the world of suggestiveness and perhaps, even soft sleaze” with the film. Initial reports also suggest that Pam, on her part, is all set to do a typically bold shot. Following these reports, the jokes doing the round on Patel, on the net, have it that the actor has shifted his attention from a ‘ thin' Freida Pinto to a ‘ well- developed' Pamela Anderson.

Pamela, Patel and Westwick apart, two lucky winners of a contest launched by the mobile phone firm will also star in the film. The film is directed by brothers Edward and Rory McHenry. The brothers have just finished shooting their debut directorial feature, Jackboots On Whitehall . The film stars Ewan McGregor, Rosamund Pike and Richard Grant.

Patel has also signed John Madden's upcoming film, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel . Madden, director of the Oscar- winning Shakespeare in Love and Captain Corelli's Mandolin , arrived in Mumbai about 10 days ago to conduct auditions for other roles in the film, which is an adaptation of Deborah Moggach's novel, Those Foolish Things . The buzz is that Hollywood stars Judi Dench and Maggie Smith will feature along with Patel in Madden's film. While Moggach's book is primarily based in Bangalore, a major portion of Madden's film will be shot in Jaipur and Udaipur. The Hollywood stars are expected to arrive in India by October 15 for the shoot.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a comedy about a group of British senior citizens in their twilight days. It follows their accounts as they travel to India to live the remaining days of their lives and how they find themselves transformed.

Patel's girlfriend Freida Pinto has been making headlines, too, with a raunchy photo shoot for a men's magazine.

“ She's not only a great girlfriend but she's also a great friend and a great support in whatever I do,” Patel said about Freida.
