The child stars of Oscar-winning movie SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE will be treated to an all-expenses paid trip to London for a special ceremony at the Houses of Parliament.
The youngsters Azharuddin Ismail, 10, and Rubina Ali, nine, will be flown from their native Mumbai, India to the British capital next weekend (12-13Jun09) for an event organised by Member of Parliament (MP) Keith Vaz.
The children will be given a tour of the landmark political building next Saturday (13Jun09) before heading to a reception to toast the film's impact on their lives and those of film-goers world-wide. Both kids will also be presented with a special award in recognition of their work in the movie.
And little Rubina is delighted to be able to visit see the U.K. She says, "I can not wait to travel to London to see the Houses of Parliament.
"I will get to see Big Ben and hopefully Leicester square where all the movie premieres are. I also want to go on the London Eye, I have seen it on the television, but now I will get to see it in real life.'
While Azharuddin adds, "We keep on getting awards for this film. It is good that the film is still being seen and I can not wait to travel to Britain to see another different country."
Both youngsters attended the Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles in February (09), before returning to their homes in the slums of Mubai. They were subsequently made homeless when local officials demolished their living quarters, but were subsequently rehoused following a public outcry.
