Shah Rukh Khan has said that the poverty highlighted in the movie is a “reality”.
Isn’t that (poverty and slums) a reality If you (critics) have a problem with the word slumdog, why don’t you look positively and see that there is a word millionaire or ‘crorepati’ also.
The success of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ worldwide is an incentive to all Indian filmmakers. Oscars and Golden Globe awards are a symbol of international recognition.
