Los Angeles: Indian actors Tabu and Suraj Sharma walked the red carpet of the 70th annual Golden Globe awards with Oscar-winning director Ang Lee here. Their film ‘Life of Pi’ was nominated in three categories, but won just one award.
Tabu, known for her offbeat and intense performances, opted to stay desi at the international gala, wearing a bright red designer sari teamed with a heavily embroidered golden blouse. Debutant Suraj, 19, exuded confidence in a white shirt and formal black suit with a matching bow-tie.
Suraj plays the lead in the movie, which is based on Canadian author Yann Martel`s award-winning eponymous novel. It is about the journey of an Indian boy who survives a storm and is left on a life-boat with a tiger.
‘Life of Pi’ won the best original score motion picture award for Mychael Danna, who pipped Alexandre Desplat (‘Argo’), Dario Marianelli (‘Anna Karenina’), Tom Tykwer, Johnny Klimek, Reinhold Heil (‘Cloud Atlas’) and John Williams (‘Lincoln’) to walk away with the prestigious trophy.
It was also nominated for the best motion picture (drama) as well as for best director (motion picture).
