Oscar-winning film ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ completes 10 years

Bollywood Oscar-winning drama ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ turned 10 on Wednesday. Actor Anil Kapoor reminisced about being part of the film.

“It feels like only yesterday that we were shooting for ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, and what a journey it has been since then,” Kapoor said in a statement. “Many have called ‘Slumdog’ a masterpiece, and I can honestly say that I’m honoured to have been a part of it.”

Anil Kapoor was seen as show host Prem Kumar in the film.

British filmmaker Danny Boyle’s ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ recounts the travails of an 18-year-old orphan (played by Dev Patel) from the slums of Mumbai who goes on to win Rs20 million on India’s ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’ game show.

The film won eight Oscars at the 81st Academy Awards, including Best Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Sound Mixing, Film Editing, Original Score, Original Song, Direction and Motion Picture.

Indian composer AR Rahman brought home two awards for the song ‘Jai Ho’.

Veteran writer-lyricist-filmmaker Gulzar and sound engineer Resul Pookutty were also winners.
