Dev Patel – The Slumdog Millionaire star won the BAFTA Award for best supporting actor for Lion. He was nominated for the award with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Jeff Bridges, Hugh Grant and Mahershala Ali.
Dev talked to IANS earlier:
I would be lying if I say that awards are not amazing. Awards can really change someone’s career. You get recognition
You might get scripts that you didn’t get earlier. But I never took up a project thinking about a golden statue.
Lion is based on Saroo Brierley’s best-selling autobiography directed by Garth Davis. The story of the film is of a Indian boy.
