The internet is going all kinds of “awww” over this cute 8 year old kid from the movie Lion.
A resident of Mumbai, Sunny Pawar, played the role of young Saroo in the movie Lion who gets separated from his family at a very young age. Lion-which had its name in 6 nominations at the Academy Awards, is based on a real life story of Saroo Brierley. Sunny Pawar was chosen for the role after auditioning 2000 children all over India.
Dressed in a black tuxedo, bow tie and cool black & green sneakers, the kid stole the hearts of all celebrities when he made his appearance on red carpet. The stars at the Oscars lined up to click pictures with this little superstar. Check out the pics:

Great having this amazing 8yr old child actor and star of LION, Sunny Pawar, stopped by my dressing room to meet. We talked about how cool it was that we both have Oscar nominated movies this Sunday, at the Academy Awards. I told him I look forward to making a movie with him one day, but he’s gonna have to take a pay cut because I don’t like kids. At all. What a performance he put on in LION and the best part about this kid is, he’s a really REALLY polite and happy little boy. So cool to see. Good luck this Sunday big man. Bring home that Oscar!
