Lion is a Hollywood movie about an Indian child who got lost in Calcutta and was adopted by an Australian couple. The movie stars Dev Patel who has been part of the Oscar winner “Slumdog Millionaire”. Lion has also received positive reviews since it was first screened. It has also received several nominations – Golden Globes, Critics Choice, SAGs or the biggest of them all, Oscars.
Sunny Pawar is the lead actor. He is the child representing the child who got lost. Dev is a supporting actor who plays the adult Saroo. The young Sunny has bowled over his audiences in Lion and we expect him to do the same in the Oscars too.
Sunny in an interview revealed that he auditioned among 7000 kids and was selected. He acted in the film in which Dev is also playing a role though they don’t share any screenspace but they were in the shoot at the same time. He is also acting with Freida Pinto in upcoming Demi Moore starrer Love Sonia. However, he shared that he liked working with Dev more than with Frieda. Dev played games with him and that was his reason.
