Dev Patel talks to @SamiraAhmedUK about taking the lead in @LionMovie. He plays Saroo, who was adopted by an Australian couple from an orphanage in Kolkata. He'd ended up there as a five-year-old after getting stuck on a train which took him thousands of miles across India, away from his family. As memories stir Saroo turns to Google Earth to find his way home.
