Freida looks lovely, like it's her prom day.
Good question.. The necklace appears vintage.. right? Is it rubies and diamonds..?
does some one has a close up of frieda's necklace? i am curios about it
Hello Anonymous on Wed, 2009-02-11: Ok- so Anil did not come from a wealthy background. What is a chawl kinda area? To say someone comes from the slums vs low-class or middle-class are two different things. If his Dad was a secretary of a film star, surely they did not live in the conditions that Dev's character did growing up. Perhaps they were low-middle class.. is this right?
Thank you Anon- Wed, 2009-02-11 04:29 !
Never knew this.. I read in some magazine somewhere that this Kapoor brood was distant cousins-- but now I know that is a myth. It was nice the way the brothers were a team. I've seen Anil speak in interviews, and he has an air of sparkle and optimism about him, certainly. I guess maybe he feels slumdog film is based on his own life, somehow... It's wonderful to know when people rose up with very little, is it not?
I think with the whole Slumdog cast, everyone really struggled or started from no-where in their career-- no one was handed chances like an elite. They seem like a brood who are not struck by the fame-greed factor (at least yet). It makes their success really nice.
Anonymous on Wed, 2009-02-11 00:45. YES IT IS RIGHT, Anil Kapoor was not born into a super rich family, his family lived in chawl kinda area. They are not related to the Raj Kapoor brood. Anil's dad used to work as secretary to actress geeta bali and than his success rose in film Industry. However, Anil did'nt exactly have it rough as his dad did have connections with film industry.
Mia Sara... there was an actress in the 90's whose delicate beauty was famed... and she disappeared. Freida so much reminds me of Mia Sara... same delicate simplicity..
But while Mia had serenity, Freida possess joy and verve!!!
Freida is looking pretty.
Guys!! I did not know Anil Kapoor did in fact come from the slums himself!!??? This is shocking news. I knew the Raj Kapoor clan were the silver-spoons. But I thought outcasted cousins: Anil and his brothers were at least middle-class. Are you SURE it was the slums!!!?? Do tell more.. it makes his success and rise all the more spectacular!
As for Frieda, she looks so sweet- a darling pretty Angel like type. She has struggled too for a film in Mumbai. Dev too seems humble, a really cool dude type. He is also a stuggler in Britian- but had a TV show, I heard.
I really hope the Slumdog team is as humble as they appear. Looks like all rose from the bottom up. Congrats to the whole cast-- and that includes AR Rehman, the star of India, of course!

Zenny love u......... thanks fr the pics... loved every one.... congrats to them
OMG thats the guys fr Skins........ i love he plays a character called Tony
and indicated he came from the slums (!!) in some of his interviews and rose from the bottom to the top. Is this right?
absolutely right. they were not well off until his movies and his brother's movies started becoming hits. his father was also in the movies.
he had an awesome attitude while giving interviews, no pretencious, fake accents, no awkward pauses, no arrogance like AISH.
dev reminds me of less hairier Imran khan
dev patel always wears this bright smile. thats so nice to see!
Anil's pose is classic!! he looks hhhaaapppyyyy .. livin it up..
Heard Anil even drove a Rolls Royce to an interview.. and indicated he came from the slums (!!) in some of his interviews and rose from the bottom to the top. Is this right?
Who is he with in the photo-- is that his wife?
Dev and Frieda look like like Romeo and Juliet, as always... so sweet.
Let's hope success does not corrupt them...
thanks zenny for posting. freida and dev look adorable. off late i have warmed up to dev. he is a little skinny but cute.
Wonderful party!! Congratulations to the cast members and team!!
All look smashing, Freida looks like a million $$$.
