Dev Patel will receive an award for best supporting actor for his performance in the film Lion at LA Italia Festival.

The 26-year-old actor will be bestowed with the honour at the closing ceremony of the fest at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre with its own awards show before the Oscars, confirmed The Hollywood Reporter.

At the opening event of the awards, director Garth Davis’ film bagged the honours for best film and best young actor for eight-year-old Sunny Pawar.

Patel and Pawar played the older and younger versions of Saroo Brierley, an Indian man who is separated from his family as a child and grows up with an adopted family in Australia, who finally traces his journey back to his roots.
