Gimme Five: Things The Slumdog Millionaire Kids Should Do Instead Of Going Back To India

APTOPIX Oscars Arrivals

Now that those adorable kids from Slumdog Millionaire have gotten a chance to attend the Academy Awards and even Disneyland, it’s time they start thinking about their next career move -after all they’re not the ones who get to take home those eight Oscars!

Blindie has five suggestions for Hollywood’s new “it kids” -Tanay Hermant Chheda, Tanvi Ganesh Lonkar, Ashutosh Lobo Gajiwalan, Rubiana Ali, Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail Sheik and Ayush Mahesh Khedekar -and it doesn’t include returning to the slums of India:

  1. Form a band. They could be the Indian version of the Naked Brothers Band or a Desi Jackson Five -plus one!
  2. Star in their own Nickelodeon sitcom. Come on, six little Indian kids speaking broken English is sure to get some laughs. Throw in Ryan Seacrest as their wise-cracking adoptive dad and now you’re talking Emmy!
  3. Star in a big budget Hollywood film. Call up Robert Rodriguez, we’ve found the next Spy Kids! And they could probably do their own stunts.
  4. Start their own fashion line. Considering most of America’s retail clothing is manufactured overseas, most likely with Slumdog-like child labor, the kids mind as well be in charge of their own label.
  5. Work at Disneyland. We heard the kids had a blast at Mickey’s hometown and since they did so well entertaining on the streets of Mumbai, so they’re sure to be a crowd pleaser in the It’s a Small World ride.
