The success of Slumdog Millionaire has far-reaching for its cast, especially the children who play young Jamal, Salim and Latika.

The latest to ride the Slumdog wave is Ayush Mahesh Khedekar [he played young Jamal in the film] when he walked the red carpet at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival.

This is the second time the boy is appearing at a major event after sharing the Oscar triumph with his two co-stars Rubina Ali [young Latika] and Azharuddin Ismail [Salim] in Los Angeles.

While Rubina and Azharuddin have returned to their life in the slums, Ayush, who is more well off has recently signed on to a new film, Shyam's Secret, and is promoting it in Cannes for five days.
