Recently Indian superstar Amitabh Bachchan slammed the much acclaimed movie Slumdog millionaire for portraying only the darker side of India. According to him the only focussed on India's darker side to sell itself without taking into account of the brighter side. Do you fully agree with him?

Why hide the reality of Mumbai? Mumbai has the richest and poorest of people living in the city. What is the first thing you notice when you land at the Mumbai Airport. The Slums. Though the movie was very gross yet that is the truth of Mumbai. Who has ever given a hear to the voice of people living in the slums? Amitabh maybe upset because Anil Kapoor was chosen to pay the role over him. His opinion would have been different if his daughter-in-law or son were part of the movie. He seems angry and not concerned about India's portrayal but he or his family were not part of the event that made history.

Amitabh maybe upset because Anil Kapoor was chosen to play the role over him. His opninon would have been different if his daughter-in-law had played Frieda's role in the movie. He seems angry for selfish reasons. He is not concerned about how India has been portrayed but is angry that he or his family was not part of the history.
