Dev Patel who rose to fame with Hollywood movie ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ will soon be seen in the upcoming movie ‘Lion’. The actor’s movie is hitting the screens in India on 24 February.
‘Lion’, also stars Rooney Mara, David Wenham and Nicole Kidman in lead roles.
The British-Indian star Dev Patel is one of the nominees at this year’s Golden Globes. However, the actor says he does not enjoy walking the red carpet as it makes him nervous.
‘Red carpets make me very nervous. It’s a big source of anxiety for me but it is a necessary part of the job,’ Patel told.
The 26-year-old actor is nominated in the best supporting actor category at the Globes this Sunday for playing the true-life inspired role of Saroo Brierley.
Patel has also starred in films like ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ and ‘The Man Who Knew Infinity’.
He says, he never imagined that ‘Lion’ will touch so many people with its story of a man in search of his roots.
‘I am looking forward to celebrate our movie at the Globes. It is a very small film. We never imagined being on the international stage. We just made it with a lot of heart and then it resonated with so many people. Sharing stage with such legends for an Indian guy who grew up in London, it is really an honour for me.’
