SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE is now all set to see a release in India. However, for those who want Anil Kapoor to speak in Hindi, they won't be disappointed since this Hollywood flick has also been dubbed in Hindi and is now known as SLUMDOG CROREPATI.

"The film has been much in news during last couple of months that it has been traveling internationally. Not just is the film a huge money spinner overseas with one of the best ROI that has ever been seen, it has also generated immense curiosity in the Indian markets. Also, though the film revolves around the character played by Dev Patel, presence of Anil Kapoor and Irrfan Khan gives SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE further visibility for the Hindi speaking audience. Hence, it was decided to dub the film in Hindi", says an industry insider.

Directed by Danny Boyle who has previously made acclaimed films like TRAINSPOTTING and THE BEACH, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE is already high up on the charts both from popularity and awards point of view. Already a part of North American Top 10, it has been nominated in Golden Globe awards under the categories Best Director, Best Motion Picture, Best Original Score (A.R. Rahman) and Best Screenplay - Motion Picture. It is also been looked as a strong contender for Oscar nominations.

Shot prominently in India, SLUMDOG MILIIONAIRE tells the story of Jamal Malik (Dev Patel), an 18 year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who is about to experience the biggest day of his life. With the whole nation watching, he is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India's "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" But when the show breaks for the night, police arrest him on suspicion of cheating; how could a street kid know so much? How he proves his innocence is what forms the crux of this film.
