However, Dev does have some concerns about bringing his mother after having a rather awkward encounter with Daniel Craig at the BAFTA‘s in 2009.

“I took her for Slumdog Millionaire, we went to the BAFTA’s in London. She was at the after-party, this mad Indian woman, and a crowd starting forming around her. She was talking to Daniel Craig,” Dev noted. “She was going on about how much she loves James Bond. She said, ‘Oh my god, you’re my favorite bond, Pierce, I just think you’re fantastic!’ She thought he was Pierce Brosnan. He very graciously corrected her.”
