Finding the Right Pi

Director Ang Lee is set to film Life of Pi and has chosen newbie actor Suraj from Delhi for the role of "Pi." Here's Lee's take on what the role of Pi entails:


Excerpt

"We searched throughout India for a young man who had the innocence to capture our attention, the depth of character to break our hearts, and the physicality needed to embody Pi on his journey. Suraj is Pi. During his audition, he filled the room with emotion, much of which he conveyed simply through his eyes. His natural ability to believe and stay in the world of the story is a rare treasure."
