Indian-origin actor Dev Patel, who was nominated in the best supporting actor category at the 89th Academy Awards for “Lion”, made the Oscar ceremony a family affair as he arrived here with mother Anita Patel. Cladded in a white Tuxedo, the 26-year-old star was looking every bit a charming gentleman. Patel’s mother complimented him well in a black sari with minimal make-up.
Although smartly dressed, it’s his charismatic smile that’s stealing the limelight at the red carpet.
The little Saroo from Lion won everybody’s heart at the Golden Globe Awards 2017 when he made a grand entry on stage with his co-actor in the film Dev Patel. In Oscars, Sunny made his red carpet appearance alone, as Dev is expected to join the guests later.
Lion has received massive appreciation from the Academy with Dev Patel being nominated in Best Supporting Actor category and Nicole Kidman up for Best Supporting Actress. The film has also been nominated for Best Film and Best Adaptive Screenplay.
Directed by Garth Davis, the true-life inspired movie is based on Saroo Brierley, an Australian-Indian, who tries to find his lost family in India through the help of Google map. “It’s mind-blowing. It’s amazing I’m with my mother and this is very very beautiful and special moment. I’m still trying to absorb it,” Patel said on red carpet.
