hi guys said on 27/Sep/17
he looked so tall in the movie lion because most people in india are of average height and the poor people are very short at around 5'4 to hardly 5'8. ONly people in punjab area are tall like 7/10 are of above average height wheras as in other states you will hardly find anyone taller than 6 feet but its so common in punjab.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Sep/17
Agreed Rampage!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Sep/17
He really could appear like a 6ft4 guy in that last scene in Lion. Literally head and shoulders above everyone in the village...
Eric said on 21/Aug/17
the guy is exactly like me strong 6'2 and about the same weight as me
long arms skinny tall guy.
Tyson said on 13/Aug/17
Not under 187.5cm, 6'2 is a very good listed. He is a giant for India like my brother in my country.
WannabeTall said on 28/Jul/17
Easily over 6'2".

Here, with Hugh Jackman.

He's really filled out aswell. He looks very broad in the photo.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jul/17
Good call Rob!
Clay said on 11/Jul/17
Don't you think he may be taller now rob? He was measured at 187cm at 17 for Slumdog millionaire. I was watching Chappie and he's looked comfortably taller than Hugh Jackman, he also slouches a lot making him appear shorter than he is.

I think he's around 189cm now
Editor Rob: I think it's probably safe to say he is around 6ft 2, he seems to look it over last 5 years the more i've seen.
Mike Skinner said on 8/Jun/17
His look is Inspriring. He gives the Impression of a Men between 6 ft 3 and 6 ft 4
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Jun/17
Rob, I think you may want to consider giving this guy a boost after you look at those photos with Jeremy Irons...

Probably likely that Irons is a little under 6ft1 today
Slovo said on 4/Jun/17
I saw The Man Who Knew Infinity yesterday. He was clearly taller than co-star Jeremy Irons. I would say that either DP is taller than 6"2, or Jeremy Irons is under 6 foot. See here:

Seeing more of him lately and he looks over this listing. Maybe 6'2 now?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 27/Apr/17
I think he may have grown some. That 187cm listing was from before Slumdog. A decent 188cm today looks more plausible.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Apr/17
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Mar/17
That last scene in Lion, you'd think he was 6ft5!

Yeah I said to Rob a few weeks back that in seeing that film I thought Patel had a Sacha Baron Cohen look about him and could pass for 6 ft 3-4. I have a hard job believing he's under 6'2, but if 187 is on his site that is probably right.
Cranberries 192cm said on 20/Apr/17
He might be a hair over 6'2" but can look exceptionally tall at times due to his long face and really long arms. Has the arm length of an average 6'5" guy.
Sam said on 19/Apr/17
Rob, could you add Lion to his credits?

He's a better looking guy I think these days with longer hair, beard and more bulk/muscle than the somewhat nerdy look he had back in Slumdog (although he apparently dated Freida Pinto back then so what do I know!)
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Apr/17
Rob, I've asked this before but could 6ft2 on the dot be closer for him now?
Editor Rob: he can definitely pass for about 6ft 2 at times.
Cq: said on 17/Apr/17
I m an extremely accurate observer of heights. This guy is a very legit 6foot 3. You would not find many claiming 6 3 to be taller than him. He is taller than hugh jackman who is almost 6 2 i understand. N anil kapoor is a pretty acceptable 5 10 n this guy is clearly about 5 inches taller. So yes he is 6 3. Guaranteed. He may wake up almost 6 4 but looks 6 3 through the day. N because he is very lean he sometimes can look almost like 6 5. But 6 3 he is in the sense u wont find a single 6 3 claimant taller for sure. He would be taller than dwayne johnson n paul walker by a bit.
Sandy Cowell said on 4/Apr/17
I have just watched Dev strolling smilingly and smoothly on to Ellen's cozy, welcoming stage! I thought, "Now he's a big guy!"
He has grown his hair out and it really suits him, as does the bit of beard! He's been talking about working out and getting into shape for his film 'Lion', and he looks a whole lot healthier than he does in the above picture. He can have 6ft1.75 from me today.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Mar/17
That last scene in Lion, you'd think he was 6ft5!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Mar/17
If he's 190cm out of bed then 188cm is definitely more feasible than 187cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Mar/17
Rob, could we give him the full 6ft2?

He looks it at least now and sometimes even 189cm. In Lion he looks very tall especially in the last scene. He's head and shoulders above everyone in the village
Arch Stanton said on 7/Mar/17
6'1-6'1.5 Guy said on 12/Feb/17
It is at least 187 cm. In the morning wakes up in a range of a little over 6'2.

I'd argue if anything he wakes up closer to 6'3, more like 190 out of bed.
Arch Stanton said on 7/Mar/17
Still far off being "buff" but he looks easily 20 pounds heavier now. 150 at 6'2 is pretty weedy.
jon said on 5/Mar/17
I think he's grown since slumdog, he looks taller than hugh jackman in chappie, i think he's 189cm now possibly. he was 18-19 when making slumdog milionaire and listed as 187cm. I think he may have grown a little
6'1-6'1.5 Guy said on 12/Feb/17
It is at least 187 cm. In the morning wakes up in a range of a little over 6'2.
Chris said on 9/Jan/17
188cm now 184 back in skins series 2 and slumdog.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 23/Dec/16
Rob, could we give him 188cm?
Pedrowski said on 11/Aug/16
He is 188 cm tall.
jajamen said on 28/Jun/16
Rob, is 6'1.5 possible? he looks quite smaller against Nicholas Hoult
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 16/Mar/16
10st at about 6ft2 is not a very appealing look. Needs to bulk up a bit.....
swag said on 1/Mar/16
lol 10 stone is so skinny, i am 6ft 5.5 in and 275 lb (btw buff)
MD said on 29/Dec/15
Haven't seen any recent pictures of him, but I could totally believe that weight from older pictures I've seen of him.
James B said on 26/Dec/15
Amaze said on 23/Dec/15
@James B exactly. I'm. A strong 5'7 male and I just wrigh 10 stone. If I was 6'2 I'd wanna be 13 roughly.

I am similar weight to you as well
Amaze said on 23/Dec/15

James B said on 8/Nov/15
For a guy who is 6'2 10 stone is insane
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 2/Oct/15
Rob, I asked this before but could he have reached 6ft2?
[Editor Rob: he can pass for 6ft 2 yes]
panda said on 2/Oct/15
he is 188 cm , while doing slumdog he is young he is below 187 and after growing age he grew 1/2 an inch or 1 cm of height
Height183 said on 9/Jul/15
Another guy who is almost 6'2'', but not quite there. This listing is spot on.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 29/May/15
If he can clear 189cm out of bed, he's a solid 6ft2...
Amaze said on 2/Apr/15
@high and low get outta here you jealous troll
he's no less than 187, defo clears 189 out of bed.
MD said on 20/Mar/15
You either haven't looked at all of the evidence on the page, and/or you're purposefully trolling, high and low.
high and low said on 18/Mar/15
Dev is what a real 6 foot 183cm barefoot person looks like, he's skinny so it makes him look taller. When he stands next to fake 6 footers people say he must be 6'2... Understand?
panda said on 15/Mar/15
dev is taller than hugh jackman
MD said on 6/Mar/15
It's possible he could be a fully 6'2", but he really does look just slightly under that. Here he is with 6'1.5" Hugh Jackman:

Click Here

This seems like a pretty good listing, to me. Almost 6'2".
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Mar/15
Rob, could it be about time you gave him 188cm?
Celebheights 6'1.5-6'2" said on 12/Feb/15
Rob, how is he only 6'1.75" if he's at least tied with Jeff Daniels (who is listed at 6'2.5"), and could be taller like some photos suggest? The full 6'2" seems more likely than 6'1.75" does, even if his agency does claim that he's only 187 CM.
Amaze said on 4/Feb/15
@Teej yes he's defo very tall for an indian guy, your half indian and your still very tall! i'd say indian men are tall 5'10 onwards

sad him and frieda split up nearly 6 years of dating. started at 18 1/2 to when he was 24
Teej said on 25/Jan/15
Very tall for an indian guy, im half indian and im 187cm, i would say he's 187cm maybe 188cm in morning
Arch Stanton said on 4/Nov/14
Rob can you add a photo and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, The Last Airbender, About Cherry and TV series Skins and The Newsroom.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 13/Oct/14
Rob, is the full 6ft2 possible?

We don't know how old that agency listing is...
[Editor Rob: not impossible]
Amaze said on 6/Sep/14
slumdog was such a brilliant film!

I thought he was 6'2'', but he is a little lower (6'1.75) or 187. if I was him i'd say about 6 ft 2 if someone asked my height, plus in shoes hes nearly 6'3.(190cm). he's light though! 10 stone at 6'2! i'd wanna be 12-13 at 6'2
Balrog said on 27/Dec/13
I really thought this guy was a solid 6'2" but next to Rathbone he looks solid 187cm. I completely agree with MD comment.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 17/Oct/13
He was 2cm shorter than Nicholas Hoult.

"Dev Patel's height is 6ft 2in (188cm)"
MD said on 15/Oct/13
I'm not sure of his exact height, myself, but what I'm absolutely sure of is that he looks taller than he is because of his very narrow physique and long limbs. That much seems obvious to me. It certainly makes him look taller than normal-sized 6'1"-6'2" guys.
Len said on 19/Aug/13
Dev claims to be 6' 1.5" elsewhere (not just his agency).

I'd say 6'1" is about right... he's very skinny so he can look taller than that, but if you compare him to his female co-stars, it's pretty obvious he's not some towering 6'2" or 6'3" guy.

Oh, and btw, Jeff Daniels is not 6'3" either, never was and is a bit shorter now in his late 50s.
height freak said on 14/Aug/13
Hey Rob, how tall would you say irfaan khan is?
avi said on 22/Jul/13
6'1 not sure why people are saying 6'2 maybe cause he is skinny
Arch Stanton said on 12/Jul/13
Watched Slumdog again earlier and I agree he looks around this, can look an inch or so taller because of his slim build (I mean he's around my height but 5 stone odd lighter!).
Silent d said on 22/Jun/13
He is pretty tall but I didn't know he was that tall. 187cm is right.
lakoda said on 20/Jun/13
He is above 6.2 and he is taller than Danny glover
Ademar said on 1/Apr/13
maybe 186,next to Hoult 190 of Hoult...There are lots of photos of BAFTA 2009 where he is next to Hoult and Freida Pinto,Patel is clearly 3cm less than 189/190 of Hoult...
Annaleese said on 1/Mar/13
@JJ He's not from India. He was born in the UK, and the first time he went to India was for the filming of his movie. Your comment is invalid.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 17/Feb/13
This listing is accurate, he's tall. 187cm is spot on. But no more than that.
jj said on 21/Jan/13
guy is not even close to 6.1 1/2 he wears elevator shoes like most indian actors do. I'm 6'2 stood next to this guy without shoes, he's not even 6'1. Sorry guys, people from that part of india are notoriously known to put on elevator shoes. And Dev does.
Balrog said on 20/Jan/13
Thanks for answering, Rob.
Balrog said on 19/Jan/13
Rob, a 6'8'' guy at 168 pounds would look more skinny than Patel or the same?
[Editor Rob: probably because of extra 6 inches he's going to visually look thinner]
Sam said on 15/Jan/13
Rob, disorted angle might be at work here but it's hard to believe he's under 6'2", as he appears taller than Jeff Daniels:
Click Here
balrog said on 26/Oct/12
Wow, almost 6'2'' at 140 pounds? This guy should put some weight on. Still think that he could be over 6'2'' but maybe being so skinny helps him to look taller.
balrog said on 11/Oct/12
This guy is clearly over 6'2. Close to Hoult. 6'2.25 (188.5 cm)
cansen79 said on 30/Sep/12
this guy is taller or at least same height with 6 3listed jeff daniels.
Sid said on 6/Aug/12
If you put Hoult at 190 cm, then how can you put Patel at 187 cm, Rob? Dont you think you should upgrade him?
[Editor Rob: it's a possibility]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Jun/12
Rob, think an upgrade to 6ft2(1.88m) might be possible?
Chris said on 30/Dec/11
I don't see anyone posting pics that proves 6'1 for Patel. 3 inches taller than Pattinson and one inch taller than Hoult. And yet people cannot believe he grew since 2008 when he was 18. He looks 6'3 right now.
Lillo thomas said on 24/Dec/11
The people that confuse 6-1 persons with 6-4 persons are either blind or have strange perception of height. 6-4 guys always look tall and very tall and 6-1 guys always look tallish above average . Next to a average guys of course . Next to normal girls 6-1 look huge. Girls are short creatures.
MD said on 22/Dec/11
I really don't know about him. Sometimes, I think he looks legitimately much taller than currently listed, and others I remember how being very lanky and very thing shoulders and thin waisted can actually have the effect of making you significantly taller than you actually are. He's tall, no doubt, but I also think his thinness exaggerates his height. I wonder how much he weighs?
Sean said on 21/Dec/11
Shows that a 6'1 guy can look 6'4 to some people.
Sam said on 20/Dec/11
This guy appears to be at least 6'2"
Chris said on 13/Dec/11
With Pattinson (listed here 6'0.5) Click Here
With Hoult (listed here 6'2.5) Click Here
Rob don't you think that he needs an upgrade? I'm looking a solid 6'3 guy. Close to 6'4.
[Editor Rob: I'd need to look at more photos from further away, too close and you can add an inch easier. I wouldn't say over 6ft 3. ]
jiten patel said on 27/Nov/11
Dev patel is 21 now and touches 6'3.5"-6'4"
his actual and real height.He has himself claimed that..I have seen him during the bafta awards and I can assure u he is 6'3.5" minimum..I am 6'2 myself.
sonam said on 18/Sep/11
i am seeing a solid 6'2''
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Jun/11
188cm now, Rob?
Cranberries (6 ft. 3.25 evening, 17 years) said on 24/May/11
Lol... You can always tell who the Indian commenters are on some of these pages. They'll try to boost the heights of Indian actors to ridiculous margins with no real evidence, and they'll comment on how "good" their height is.

If Dev Patel were over 6'2", he'd tower over Danny Boyle. I've seen several pictures of the two together, and he might have a couple inches on ~5'10" Boyle.
Click Here

6'1.5" is accurate. Above average, but not quite in what I'd call the "tall" range.
Also, Nikitin Dheer is about that height too (maybe 6'2.25").
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Mar/11
Gary said on 14/Jan/11
Rob : Do you think Dev Patel is taller than a present day Amitabh Bachchan? I've seen Anil Kapoor with Mr. Bachchan and there's always a 3 inch sorta difference. But b/w Anil and Dev, it looks like a 5 inch difference. I dont understand. Both are listed as 6"1.5 ..... eh, Rob?

[Editor Rob: present day amit looks shorter than dev]
xyz.reg said on 8/Jan/11
According to his screen appearance he looks close to 6ft 1in..anil kapoor is 5ft 9in..not 5ft 11in..its again those morons who talk nonsense...who dont have any idea how tall is a genuine 6 footer...he is maximum 6ft 1.5in and not a single mm more than that..
Ace said on 4/Jan/11
He can sometimes look as tall as 6`2.5. My guess is he is in the 6`2 range.
Nann said on 1/Jan/11
He looked so tall next to Frieda in the final scene in slumdog (when they were walking off the platform after the dance scene) he looked like a foot taller than her!
James said on 27/Dec/10
He is 6'2"-6'3".
MM said on 16/Nov/10
HE has to be atleast 6'4 because hes an inch taller than Glover, and he looked 3 inches taller than Robert Pattinson.
Moke said on 12/Nov/10
6'4?! But 6'2 may be possible...
The Horse of FUNK said on 11/Nov/10
Cheese, what happened to Danny Glover? Looks like Glover is competing with Eastwood over who can lose the most inches.
Anonymous said on 10/Nov/10
This guy is very tall.He was even taller than the 5'11" anil kapoor
he is between 6'3.5"-6'4"
He is very goodlooking guy with great height.
