After making waves overseas, Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire is all set to release in India in January. The film stars Anil Kapoor [Images], Irrfan Khan [Images] and newcomers Dev Patel and Freida Pinto.


For its Indian release, Slumdog Millionaire has been dubbed in Hindi, and re-titled Slumdog Millionaire: Kaun Banega Karorepati.


The film tells the story of a boy from the Mumbai slums, whose adventures take him from begging on the streets to the popular gameshow Who Wants to be a Millionaire? where he surprises everyone with his knowledge.


The film has won people's choice award at the Toronto film festival and was given a rousing applause at the London [Images] Film Festival.


It is a strong contender for the Oscars. A R Rahman recently triumphed at the Los Angeles awards, and bagged an award for best composer. Boyle bagged the best director's award at the ceremony.
