“In the first part we have wonderful electrical Sunny Pawar, who has never been in front of the camera before and leads more than half of the film. I take on the more mature portions,” Dev said in an interview.

Apart from him, Lion also stars Hollywood actress Nicole Kidman, David Wenham and Indian actors Priyanka Bose, Deepti Naval, Tannishtha Chatterjee and Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
