Hong Kong, Jun 7: Ayush Mahesh Khedekar, Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail and Rubina Ali, the Indian child stars of the Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire performed live a dance number in Hong Kong for a charity fund-raising show. The show reportedly raised more than $100,00.

The Slumdog kids danced to the movie's hit song 'Jai ho' at the fund-raising TV show on Saturday, Jun 7, sometimes moving out of synch with the adult dancers, but they were warmly applauded.

Presenters announced after the performance that one donor phoned in a contribution of 830,000 Hong Kong dollars ($107,000) to The Community Chest charity during the dance number. The two 10-year-olds and 9-year old are performed at two Hong Kong shopping malls on Sunday, Jun 7.

Louie Tong, the Community Chest publicist said the charity is covering the children's travel expenses and lodging at a luxury hotel, but it is only paying them a small honorarium. She would not reveal the amount. Slumdog Millionaire won eight Oscars in Feb, 2009 including best picture and best director and made more than $350 million worldwide.
