Slumdog: Now slum dwellers protest

Residents of Dharavi, Asia's largest shanty town, display posters and placards as they protest against the producers of film Slumdog Millionaire [Images] in Mumbai [Images] on Tuesday.

In recent weeks the movie's success around the world has been overshadowed by objections in India to the name, which some slum dwellers find offensive, its depiction of the lives of impoverished Indians and the treatment of the cast.
