Sunny Pawar is living the life. The eight-year-old actor may have a dream date with the Oscar ceremony on 26 February, but his greatest dream has already come true.

The little star of Garth Davis's touching film, Lion, had mentioned earlier that he wished to meet WWE stars like Roman Reigns, The Rock, Undertaker and others. Well, it seems they wanted to meet him as well.

The charming little actor was taken on a ringside tour of the WWE Summer Slam and got to hang out with his superstar wrestling idols, including Dwayne Johnson. The star even gifted him a memento worth stealing – the WWE championship belt.

The Moana (2016) and Fast & Furious star took time off to hang out with Pawar, even letting him pose with the celebrated WWE championship belt. Writing on his Facebook feed, Johnson said, 'What a performance he put on in LION and the best part about this kid is, he's a really REALLY polite and happy little boy. So cool to see...Good luck this Sunday big man. Bring home that Oscar!' 

Johnson was not the only wrestling star that Pawar managed to pose with. The actor also got to snap pictures with Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Sheamus and New Day, and Charlotte Flair. 

The belt was not the only memento Pawar walked away with. The actor was also gifted a T-shirt from the team of New Day.

Pawar still has the Oscar ceremony to attend on 26 February. His film has been nominated in six categories. Somehow, we have a feeling Pawar has already won his trophy.
