The US President, Barack Obama, wants to watch 'Slumdog Millionaire', the White House has said.
'Slumdog Millionaire', the exhilarating rags-to-riches fairy tale set in Mumbai, swept the Oscars with eight awards including the best picture, best director, best adapted screenplay; with A R Rahman becoming the only Indian to bag two Oscars for the best score and original song.
"I don't know if he has seen 'Slumdog Millionaire'. I know he wants to," White House spokesman, Robert Gibbs, told reporters during the course of his daily press briefing.
Gibbs said Obama has watched several movies recently. "I think that a lot of the movies that he has seen recently are movies that might also entertain a seven-and-a-10-year-old girl. Not sure that 'Slumdog Millionaire' would be on that list," Gibbs said.
