Lion's Sunny Pawar Is Here to Steal Your Heart
Sunny Pawar is the breakout star of this season's acclaimed film, Lion. Playing the young Saroo Brierley, it wasn't long before the eight-year-old captured the hearts of Hollywood and the world, not just for his touching performance, but general all-around likability IRL.
Discovered after director Garth Davis and casting director Kirsty McGregor scoured schools all over India, Lion is Sunny's first official acting gig. And though his name may be up in lights, he's just like any other eight-year-old kid, telling PEOPLE magazine he "[likes to] eat a lot and I like to sleep a lot", and "I'm still a little kid so [my parents have] made sure that I don't go flying high. So education continues and strict discipline continues."
