Sunny Pawar, who played the young Dev Patel in the movie Lion, is seen here at the prestigious Oscar award ceremony. Sunny has won a lot of critical acclaim for his performance in the movie and is also said to have outshadowed Dev! Well, at the Oscars, Sunny had a sweet little message for his Oscar nominated colleague.
When asked what he learnt from working with Dev Patel, Sunny said, “I learnt a lot from him. But I taught him too. I taught him Hindi, and played a lot with him. I learnt lot of games from him, I also learnt acting from him.”
Isn’t that sweet?
Lion features a cast of actors as prolific as Nicole Kidman, Rooney Mara, Dev Patel, Deepti Naval, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Tannishthha Chatterjee.
The movie is based on India-born Australian businessman Saroo Brierley’s non-fiction work A Long Way Home – a memoir in which he relates how he found his birth mother over two decades after he was accidently separated from her and his family.
Sunny Pawar plays Saroo in the movie, which has been nominated for multiple categories of the Oscars and the Academy Awards and BAFTA Awards.
