The Slumdog Millionaire hysteria is far from over even weeks after the film swept the Academy awards. While Anil Kapoor and Irrfan Khan are still basking in the glory, even the slum-kids who walked the red-carpet at the Oscars can't get over their excitement of being part of this blockbuster.
Recently, two of the slum-kids who featured in the film (Azharuddin Mohammad and Rubina Ali) were asked to make a special appearance in Vashu Bhagnani's Kal Kissne Dekha and the kids surely couldn't have asked for more. They played themselves in the film and shot with debutant Jackky Bhagnani for a pivotal scene in the film.
Now with elections round the corner, don't be surprised if you see these very tiny tots riding the current wave and campaigning for a particular political party, is what this artist seems to be hinting. After all, a leading political party has already bought the rights of the popular track 'Jai Ho' to use in its campaign so the day may not be far when the Slumdog kids would be seen shouting 'Jai Ho' along with political bigwigs.
