From the 'Slums' to Hollywood


The cast of "Slumdog Millionaire" partied it up at a pre-Oscar bash -- and director Danny Boyle made it a night to remember for two of the film's pint-sized stars and their families.

Boyle flew Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail and Rubiana Ali and their families out to Los Angeles to celebrate the success of the indie movie, which is favored to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards tonight. "These kids have never seen anything like LA," a source revealed to the NY Post. "They and their families spent their entire lives in the slums."

The bash, hosted by "Today" host Meredith Vieira, was held at the fancy Four Seasons Hotel.
