When they arrived in town on Friday, one thing the three Indian child actors from Slumdog Millionaire said they wanted to see was our Disneyland. Well, they got their wish on Monday. The young stars - who were here for promotional appearances for The Community Chest charity on Sunday - were taken to the theme park on their free day.

Accompanied by the resort's managing director, Andrew Kam - who obviously knows a good publicity stunt when he sees one - the kids, Rubina Ali (left), Ayush Mahesh Khedekar (right) and Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail got a chance to take pictures in front of the Sleeping Beauty castle and jump the queue on the 'It's a Small World' ride and many others. Of course, they were also loaded down with all kinds of souvenirs that they can show their friends back in the poverty-stricken slums of Mumbai.

It may be a small world but it's also a poor one, after all.
