After a grand India premiere and with the awaiting results of Oscars this year, LION has most certainly become one of the most awaited films to soon hit the Indian box office on 24th February. The film starring Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman, also has an incredible performance by a then 5 year old boy, Sunny Pawar who's risen to global fame owing to his impeccable acting skills as the young Saroo in the film. Now as we inch closer to the release of the film, a brand new India poster has been released featuring Sunny Pawar who plays young Saroo. LION directed by Garth Davis is a true story based on a book penned by Saroo Brierley on his real life story - all of 5 years old Saroo was born as Sheru Munshi Khan to a single mother in Madhya Pradesh. On an unfortunate day he loses his way from home and locked inside a train he reached Kolkata. Later adopted by an Australian family, he starts a new life only to find himself in a journey 25 years later to find his way home. Credit: PR Handout
