Actor Sunny Pawar made many international fans when he attended the prestigious Oscar and Golden Globe awards which are held in America. He was present there for last year for his debut movie Lion, which he is the lead actor in. Regardless of all the critical acclaim, Sunny says that he doesn’t feel like a star. Coming from a humble background keeps him grounded despite working in projects starring huge names such as Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, Saif Ali Khan, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
The young actor will also be seen as the protagonist of the flick Chippa, which is set to premier at the Jio MAMI 20th Mumbai Film Festival with Star on Monday, which is a story of the dreams and aspirations of a child who is living on the streets. When asked on how it feels to be big and considered a star now, Sunny revealed, “I don’t feel like a star.” The story of Chippa is told through a journey he takes into an enchanting world which he creates himself on one wintry night in Kolkata. He was asked if he felt any pressure because of the fact that he was in every single scene in the movie and the film centers around him, "No. There was no pressure. The director (Safdar Rahman) and my father explained things to me.”
The 10-year-old is also thrilled to be in Kolkata where he shot his debut film Lion. "I got to roam around a lot this time. I got to play and I had a lot of fun," said Sunny. All his projects Lion, Sacred Games, and Love Sonia, which got wide praise for dealing with child trafficking, are very serious, When asked why he picks such subjects, he answered, "My dad selects scripts for me and I never felt that he made a wrong decision in choosing projects for me,"
"I want to continue acting and I want to do all types of roles," he shared.
