Dev Patel took 8 months to perfect Australian accent

Dev Patel

Actor Dev Patel was last seen in drama 'Lion' which released in 2016. Patel plays the character of an Indian boy who gets lost on the streets of Calcutta, thousands of kilometers from home and survives many challenges before being adopted by a couple in Australia and eventually 25 years later, he sets out to find his lost family.

Actor has revealed that it took him around 8 months to prepare for the role and perfect the Australian accent. “A lot of effort is what it took. Eight months of effort in fact with the genius of a dialect coach from Sydney, Jenny Kent. I was really lucky that the production gave me that comfortable lead up to take that time to do that,” Patel said.

Dev also felt honored to work with Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman in the movie who plays his adoptive mother. “I feel Nicole just really opened up … for this one. She is such an icon and to have her in this movie takes it to another level. I have a mum who I am very close to and when I read this script I knew my mum would be really proud of it and she was a couple mess when she saw it.” he said.
