Slumdog Millionaire fame actor Dev Patel is yet again going to be seen in a unique and content driven movie — Lion — by Garth Davis. Dev in this movie plays the protagonist, who with the help of online maps finds his lost family after years. The actor apparently has been working hard on not just the personality of his character, but also his looks for the same.

A close source to the actor reveals, “Dev did a lot of preparation for his role in this movie. He had to go through a body transformation of sorts — he had to get beefed up. Not just his body but he also had to grow his hair and beard out for him to look even more intense. He spent eight months travelling by local trains to understand and do justice his character justice.”
