Slumdog Millionaire cast coming to India

Posted by Mohan Desai On 1:20 PM
The film is set in the city and has been shot extensively here. Director Danny Boyle, Twentieth Century Fox co-chairman Jim Gianopulous and lead actor Dev Patel, along with the other members of the cast, will attend the premiere. Even more excitingly, the evening the premiere takes place here coincides with the announcement of Oscar nominations; this happens on 22 January at 7.30 pm IST. ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ releases in India with more than 200 prints across the country (in both Hindi and English) on 23 January. Trade insiders say the Hindi version of the film, titled ‘Slumdog Crorepati', will have a wider release and penetrate non-metro areas as well. The film has been dubbed in Hindi by its original cast. The cast and the crew will be coming to India two days before the premiere and will be visiting Mumbai and Delhi. They will also be attending a charity dinner apart from a busy media itinerary. "The Mumbai premiere is a special event for all those associated with ‘Slumdog Millionaire'. After the film has released in US and UK and has become what it has, it is like a homecoming for the film's cast and crew. We are planning a gala event with a special list of invitees,'' Fox Star Studio India CEO Vijay Singh said. "The cast and the crew will be in Mumbai when the Oscar nominations are going to be announced. We are all the more hopeful after the film's performance at Golden Globe.''
