    Default Child stars of 'Slumdog Millionaire' to attend Oscars

    The child stars of Mumbai-set hit movie "Slumdog Millionaire"will be celebrating two firsts this weekend: a trip on an airplane and a ticket to the Oscars Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles Sunday.

    "The kids are on their way to the Oscars! Everyone is very excited,"the film's British director Danny Boyle wrote to Daily News in an email on Friday.

    The three main characters of the rags-to-riches story are played by nine actors, showing them in three stages of their lives, and all will attend the star-studded ceremony at the Kodak Theatre Sunday, Fox Searchlight Pictures said.

    The older actors are no strangers to the limelight, including British Indian Dev Patel, 18, and Freida Pinto, 24, labelled a new style icon by Vogue magazine.

    But for the younger co-stars, Rubina Ali Qureshi, 9, and Azhar Mohammed Ismail, 10, this will be their first time out of India, and first taste of the glitz and glamour of Hollywood.

    Fox Searchlight said it was paying the bill for visas, travel and accommodations for nine children to fly to Los Angeles for the Oscars.

    The film makers were accused last month of exploiting the children. Boyle and producer Christian Colson have rejected the charge, saying the children were paid above local Indian wages for their work and that the film's makers were also paying for their education.

    "Slumdog Millionaire"is nominated for 10 Oscars-the industry's highest honours-including best picture and best director. It already has won at the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild, and the British BAFTA awards.
