Byline: ANI

New Delhi, May 20 (ANI): The street kids of New Delhi had a rendezvous with Oscar winning sound mixer of 'Slumdog Millionaire' Resul Pookutty here last evening.

Continuing his association with the rags to riches Oscar winning flick, Resul interacted with the homeless kids as part of the initiative of a self-help group 'Butterflies India', working for the cause of street children.

Resul posed for photographs and also chatted up the kids.

"It feels great because I have come here to spend time with them and to see how they are. So, it is also an attempt to bring the marginalized people in the forefront. Its time for change," said Resul.

Winning an Oscar has changed the life of this small town sound mixer who shared the Sound Mixing Oscar with Ian Tapp and Richard Pryke for his work in the Danny Boyle's film "Slumdog Millionaire".

Post Slumdog Millionaire, work has started pouring in for Resul from both Indian and international filmmakers.

"Slumdog Millionaire", a rags-to-riches story of a Mumbai slum dweller, who goes on to win 20 million dollars in a quiz show, was adjudged the best film.

"Slumdog Millionaire" was nominated for 10 Oscars, including best picture and best director. It already has won at the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild, and the British BAFTA awards.

AR Rahman and Resul Pookutty won three Oscars for India as the "Slumdog Millionaire" juggernaut swept the annual Hollywood awards.

It also fetched Danny Boyle the Best Director award, Simon Beaufoy best Adapted Screenplay and Anthony Dod Mantle the best Cinematography award. The film was also awarded for Best Editing. (ANI)
