London: `Slumdog Millionaire` star Dev Patel is finding it hard to promote his latest movie `The Last Airbender`, after the film was hit with bad reviews by the critics.
The 20-year-old actor takes on the role of Prince Zuko in M Night Shyamalan`s fantasy film which has been panned by the critics, Playlist magazine reported.
"You know, you can`t lie and say that every single review written about the film is wrong," Patel said.
The movie is a feature film adaptation of the animated series `Avatar: The Last Airbender`. "But for me, it`s really tricky. Because at this stage in my career I didn`t have as much say as I would have liked in the film. Yes, there are parts in it that truly amaze me. But there are others, you know...," Patel said.
