Welcome home, Sunny Pawar!
The adorable 8-year-old “Lion“ star, who played the younger version of Dev Patel’s character in the Oscar-nominated film, returned home to Mumbai, India, where the welcome wagon was rolled out in a big way!
“It’s been crazy. People have not stopped calling since we arrived home. We’ve not stopped to rest for one minute,” Pawar told the Daily Mail. I love seeing my family get the respect they deserve. I would not have done any of this without their support. Nobody has treated us like we’re a poor family or live in a slum during this journey. I can only hope it continues and my family are treated well wherever they go.”
Meanwhile, Pawar was pretty much the darling of the 2017 Oscars ceremony last weekend, where he opened up to ET about his stay in America. And we’ve gotta say — he pretty much crushed it!
Watch the video below for what he did.
