Looking for Sunny Shah

Tess Joseph Casting  team are behind this year’s Oscar nominated Hollywood film,  LION, directed by Garth Davis featuring the child wonder  Sunny Pawar.

The casting  team is highly qualified and is led by  Tess Joseph, who has worked with children on many national and international projects, including being the director of The Bournvita Quiz Contest hosted by Derek O Brien and the Girl Rising Campaign which works with women and children.  Karishma Mathur  is an Australian trained Drama and Theatre teacher/trainer who has worked with children nationally and internationally for several years.

The company  are casting for the lead character “Sunny Shah” for a movie called SPIN on a major American TV Children’s Channel. SPIN is the story of an Indian American girl and her journey to embrace herself and her culture. Its a film that talks about music, identity, self-discovery and family. It is a story that talks of being Indian and inclusive of other cultures in a beautiful fun way.

Here’s more about Sunny –

She is between  13-16 years old,  Indian, the feisty waitress at her parent’s Indian restaurant in Queens. She constantly struggles with her identity: she feels too Indian for the world, but too American at home. She is naturally brilliant & clever, an A+ student who’s the head of the school’s coding club while having a secret passion for music. She’s able to create the hottest tracks with her ability to see music in everyday sounds plus her coding skills. Sunny wants to be a DJ.

We would love to give young girls from the Indian-Australian community the opportunity to audition for this beautiful part. Would it be possible to request you to please put the poster up in your upcoming print and/or online edition?
