Oscar and BAFTA Award winning film Slumdog Millionaire seems like going a step further in recognising its star cast to the world audience. Be surprised because it's not Dev Patel and Freida Pinto. Slumdog Millionaire's Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail and Rubina Ali have received a special invite from Britain's MP Keith Vaz to attend a grand tea party to be held at the House of Commons in Westminster later this month.
Keith Vaz wanted to invite both the kids in the month of April but due to reasons unknown, it didn't work out. Now he has made sure that there are no further delays. Both the kid's family accepted the invitation sent by Vaz and are now ready to leave for London in the near future to attend the grand tea party. Though the date of the party is yet to be decided, Vaz wished that both Azharuddin and Rubina meet the UK media and their well wishers who've praised their performances in the multiple award winning film.
Speaking from London, Keith said, "Both the kids have left a lasting impression on the people of UK to such an extent that they are now interested in knowing about the personal lives of the kids after what was badly written about them in the Indian and world press. I haven't yet decided the date when the party will be held but it sure is going to happen in the near future."
Well, these kids deserve much more than just slums. Way to go kids!
