Actor Anil Kapoor, who played the role of a mean reality game show host in Slumdog Millionaire says the cast and crew of the Oscar favourite are stunned by the success of the film.

The underdog tale of a Mumbai-slum deweller has grabbed every other award including four golden Globes and seven BAFTA awards and has earned 10 Oscar nominations. The Bollywood actor revealed that everyone involved in the the making of the movie has been surprised by its critical and commercial success.

"To be honest, wherever we've gone with any of the awards, we've gone not expecting anything," he told 'inthenews.Co.Uk.' "We're so overawed with what we've got and God has always been kind to us. It's been wonderful. We've always been the underdogs. None of us really feel confident, we are just very grateful to all the fans and to at least be nominated," he told the website.
