"Yes, lots and lots!" the 8-year-old, who has just finished
his second film, said when asked if he would like to do more
Pawar made his acting debut in "Lion", which is based on the
true story of Saroo Brierley, who was separated from his family
at the age of five when he accidentally boarded the wrong train
in rural India.
Unable to remember his hometown or his mother's name, Saroo is
placed in an orphanage, adopted by an Australian family and
taken to live in the southern island state of Tasmania. He uses
the Google Earth map tool more than 20 years later to try to
find his home in India.
Pawar filmed the movie alongside Nicole Kidman when he was just
six and bonded closely with actor Dev Patel, who plays Saroo for
the second half of the film.
"We talked and played and then we became friends", he said.
