    "Lovely to see Dev Patel's mom, a beautiful sari-clad Gujju lady from London who must be incredibly proud of her underdog son."

    And everybody was in love with her gorgeous sari.

    People loved that Anita stole the show on the red carpet, in a way that only a proud Indian mom could.

    Even Mahershala Ali couldn't handle how glamorous Mrs. Patel looked.

    Neither could Mindy Kaling.

    Of course, Dev couldn't stop gushing over his date for the evening.
