Quite a few Bollywood films has been invited for a gala presentation in this year's Toronto International Film Festival. Recently it was heard that Akshay Kumar- Katrina starrer latest blockbuster will be showcased at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival. And now as per the reports Anil Kapoor and Irrfan Khan starrer forthcoming film SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE will also be premiered at the festival.

This is Anil Kapoor's first International project also featuring Irrfan Khan alongside. The festival is being held in Toronto from September 4 - 11. Acclaimed British filmmaker Danny Boyle who directed films such as TRAINSPOTTING, 28 DAYS LATER and SUNSHINE has directed SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE. Anil Kapoor is expected to attend the premiere along with the rest of the cast and crew of the film.

The film is based on the best selling novel Q and A by writer Vikas Swarup and has been shot in Mumbai. It's about a kid from the slums of Mumbai, who has nothing - he's ill educated, he's illiterate - and he goes on the Hindi version of 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire' and wins it. It has tongue-in-cheek humour. This film is written by Simon Beaufoy.

Hollywood big studios Fox Searchlight and Warner Bros. have teamed up to distribute the film. The film also has a few more Indian names attached to it. Sukhwinder Singh has sung a song for the film and the music is composed by A.R. Rehman which has lyrics by Gulzar.

Initially, Amitabh Bachchan was offered this role of the quizmaster since he had played the part on the famous game show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' with great effect. But after he expressed his inability, Shah Rukh Khan was approached but then the King Khan cited date problems and excused himself out. Anil Kapoor was the next choice and he lapped up the chance immediately.
