When Danny Boyle’s breathless, anal-fixation film released, there were all manner of objections — to his glorification of our poverty, of Dharavi, our entrenched beggary, to the very word ‘slumdog’. But all objections vanished the moment the film became a hit abroad; when it started sweeping up the Oscars and Baftas and Grammys, Mumbai reveled in its shit-encrusted glory, its Jai Ho energy and Anil Kapoor’s entry into Hollywood. Say whatever you want of us, Danny; just make sure the dollars roll in.
