When Danny Boyle was casting for his movie Slumdog Millionaire, he originally selected Bollywood actor Ruslaan Mumtaz for the leading role. However, he later decided that Mumtaz was "too handsome" for the part, upon which his daughter, a fan of the TV show Skins, suggested Patel. After five auditions, Patel was cast for the role of his career in August of 2007.

Patel began dating his co-star Freida Pinto in 2009, after meeting on the set of Slumdog Millionaire. They broke up in December of 2014, after six years together.
