Oscars 2017: Sunny Pawar, Priyanka Chopra and how India was represented in the ceremony
Move over Hollywood starlets, Sunny Pawar is the new red carpet sensation at the Oscars.
The 8-year-old star of Lion stood out on the red carpet and was one of the most memorable red carpet fashionistas in the Oscars 2017.
Pawar is not the only Indian who made it on the red carpet though. Dev Patel, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for Lion, walked the Oscars Red carpet with his mother. The 26-year-old star was clad in a white tuxedo and his mother wore a black sari with minimal make-up.
Patel too thought Sunny Pawar was the most adorable thing in the room.

The film Lion was based on Tasmanian-raised Saroo Brierley's book, A Long Way Home, which tells the story of how he was separated from his family in India, adopted by an Australian family, and reconnected with his birth mother 25 years later. Brierley also attended the Oscar ceremony.
