The Slumdogs Strike Back…
No, it isn’t a sequel for Slumdog Millionaire. The slumdog critics have finally got their vengeance.
Nicholas Almeida, a social activist and slum dweller - a critic of the award-winning movie “Slumdog Millionaire” has named stray dogs after those involved in the film to protest against the title.
Almeida said he would continue to press for the movie’s title to be changed, but has meanwhile held a naming ceremony for stray dogs in the slum to publicise his cause.
“I have named them Danny, Christian, Loveleen, Dev and Freida,” he said, referring to the director, producer, co-director Loveleen Tandan, star Dev Patel and leading lady Freida Pinto.
Way to go. Now, I would be even more delighted if these celebrity canines get an invitation to the Oscar night.
