Enjoyed attending Oscars, says Sunny Pawar

Thursday, March 02, 2017

Mumbai boy and 'Lion' star Sunny Pawar says he had a great time at the 89th Academy Awards ceremony.

The eight-year-old child actor, who hails from a suburban slum in the city, rose to global fame overnight with his Oscar-nominated film 'Lion' starring Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman.

He played the role of young Saroo Brierley in the Garth Davis-directed movie.

"I had a lot of fun at the Oscars. I am really happy and I really enjoyed attending the Oscars," Sunny said at the airport after returning from the US in the wee hours yesterday.

'Lion' is the true story of a young child who is separated from his family and later gets adopted by an Australian family. When he grows up, he uses Google Earth to find his real parents.

Sunny's family is on the cloud nine and is proud of him. "We all are very happy that Sunny has reached this far. It all seems like a dream. Unfortunately, we couldn't see the Oscars due to some technical problems we will surely watch it soon," said Sunny's grandfather Bhima Pawar.

His mother Vasu says her son has been a movie buff and one of his favourite films is Hrithik Roshan starrer 'Krrish'.

"I don't know what to say... It's all happening too quick. Happiness is a small word to describe my feelings at the moment. We are thankful to the entire team of 'Lion'," she said, adding that Sunny is good at studies as well.

Further, the child actor met Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray after returning from the US.

Sunny, along with his parents and a host of relatives, visited 'Matoshree', the residence of the Thackeray family in suburban Bandra.
