Punters got their money’s worth today when they saw Hollywood stars Jeremy Irons and Dev Patel filming on the banks of the River Cam.

Slumdog Millionaire star Patel is playing a Cambridge maths genius in The Man Who Knew Infinity, which co-stars Irons.

The punters caught a glimpse of Harrow-born Patel on the Backs as the crew filmed near to Trinity College Bridge today (Monday), while touts across the city used the Cam’s Hollywood link to entice extra tourists onto the river.

River users were held back while some of the filming took place, as actors took the same risk of falling in the drink as everyone else when they got into punts.

One punter told the News: “The touts were telling people all day they would get a chance to see Hollywood stars filming so it helped them. It was ridiculously busy. Everyone had to wait for them to do their filming, which wasn’t for very long but it caused a bit of chaos.”

The film is about the life of Srinivasa Ramanujan, who died in 1920 aged just 32, but helped lay the foundations for the digital age. He was brought to Cambridge by professor G H Hardy, who is played by Irons.

Google honoured Ramanujan on the 125th anniversary of his birth by replacing its logo with a doodle on its home page. As well as the River Cam, scenes will be shot in Trinity College, where Ramanujan became the first Indian to be elected a Fellow.

The film has been described by its executive producer Joe Thomas as a meeting of Russell Crowe film A Beautiful Mind with Good Will Hunting, which starred the late Robin Williams.

The river has been a popular place for television and film producers of late. Filming for the Stephen Hawking biopic starring Eddie Redmayne took place in the Backs last autumn, while ITV viewers will see the Cam in the drama Grantchester next month.

Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel had to be rescued from the River Cam after he lost his footing and slipped down the bank.

But it wasn’t a real emergency – the 24-year-old actor was filming scenes for his new movie, The Man Who Knew Infinity, and was plucked to safety from the cold water by co-star Jeremy Irons.

The pair spent the day in Cambridge as they rehearsed and shot scenes for the Hollywood biopic about Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan.

Dev is playing the Indian maths maestro and Jeremy Irons, 65, will star as G H Hardy, the Cambridge professor who brings him to the UK.

Also spotted by the river was Devika Bhise, who was in The Accidental Husband starring Uma Thurman.

Much of the film is being shot in and around Trinity College, where Ramaunjan became the first Indian to be elected as a Fellow.

In the scene shot late on Monday afternoon, the two actors are seen strolling along when Ramanujan hears cheering along the river bank and runs over to see what is going on.

The crowd is watching a punting race, but in his haste to see the boats, Ramanujan slips down the steep bank and ends up in the river.

He has just enough time to hand his precious books to Hardy, before he bobs under the water. Dev was spotted spitting out some of the river water which he had swallowed during the stunt.

He was also seen earlier in the day riding a bike along the Backs as he rehearsed for another scene.

Srinivasa Ramanujan was a brilliant mathematician, who helped pave the way towards today’s digital age, but died of malnutrition and illness in 1920, aged just 32.

The film, which is being directed by Matt Brown, is based on Robert Kanigel’s biography.
