Los Angeles: Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman says her upcoming film “Lion” is extremely close to her heart and she wants to dedicate it to her two adopted kids.
The 49-year-old star, who adopted Connor and Isabella with her ex-husband Tom Cruise, said she can totally relate to the film’s plot, reported Entertainment Tonight.
“I can see now, for ‘Lion,’ that it was important to me because I’m a mother with adopted children,” Kidman said.
The actress plays a mother in the film, who adopts her son from India after he is found on the streets of Kolkata.
“This movie is a love letter to my children. (My character) Sue is deeply maternal and full of unconditional love, which is beautiful. That’s why I wanted to do it. I relate to that. I feel that for my own children, who are adopted. It’s not about anything else other than ‘I wanted you.’ It’s that deep and personal, and whatever your journey is, I’m here to love and support you. That’s what I connected to,” she said.
