During the same interview, Dev also revealed feeling ashamed of his Indian roots when he was growing up. The actor stated that studying in London wasn't the coolest thing. And he did his best not to show that part. He was quoted as saying:

"There was a time when I was ashamed of the Indian part of my heritage. When you're in school in Greater London, it's not the coolest. I'm trying what I can to not show that part, going into films like Slumdog Millionaire and doing all these kind of movies. I realised actually that with the first movie I'm going to direct, I'm not going to double down, I'm going to triple down on culture."

Dev Patel also talked about his film, Monkey Man, which is inspired by the stories of Lord Hanuman when he forgot who he was and lost his confidence. Dev Patel narrated the story of Lord Hanuman and revealed that the mighty god rediscovered himself with the help of others. Hence, Dev thought it would be an amazing story for an action movie.
