81st Annual Academy Awards | Slumdog Millionaire | Slumdog Millionaire Premiere | Freida Pinto | Danny Boyle
The Slumdog Millionaire kids are under the spotlight. After attending the Academy Awards and hobnobbing with the biggest and best names in Hollywood, the kids have been in the public eye ever since. While the world is still talking about them, Vashu Bhagnani has gone ahead and shot with two kids from the Slumdog Millionaire cast – Azharuddin Mohammed and Rubina Ali - for his new film Kal Kissne Dekha. The sequence was filmed on Tuesday night (March 3) at the airport in Mumbai.
The sequence is an integral part of the film. Lead man Jackky Bhagnani rescues the two kids after they arrive from the Academy Awards. "Jackky can 'see' the future and he realises that the lives of Azhar and Rubina, who are returning from Los Angeles after attending the Academy Awards, is in danger. Hence, he rushes to the airport and rescues the two," Vashu Bhagnani enlightens me.
Incidentally, the kids were dressed in the same outfit that they had sported at the Academy Awards.
