Dev Patel - Dev Patel's Best Exotic Energy Drinks
Dev Patel was so concerned about his energy levels dipping while on the set of 'Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' he was consuming ''12 energy drinks a day''.
Dev Patel had to consume ''12 energy drinks a day'' while on the set of 'Best Exotic Marigold Hotel'.
The British actor stars alongside legends including Dame Judi Dench, Tom Wilkinson and Bill Nighy in the movie about a group of retirees who head to a recently done-up hotel in India, and he admits he struggled to keep up with the pace while filming.
He told BANG Showbiz: ''My energy had to be off the scale always, which is hard in that heat. I often got put to shame by the others in the movie. I was drinking like, 12 energy drinks a day just to keep it up, take after take. John the director just wanted more and more.
''I wish I had a tranquiliser on some scenes now!''
However the 21-year-old star's biggest worry was that his co-stars would think he was a ''crap'' actor.
He joked: ''The week before I got cast was the most terrifying experience of my life because like, I just thought they were going to see right through me. These guys have done so much work, their resumes are just solid. I thought they would see right through me and they'd just know I'm crap! And I got to set and I couldn't have been more wrong.''
'Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' will be released in the UK on Friday (24.02.12).
