Words: Benjamin Franklin
In the movie Slumdog Millionaire, the star Jamal ( Dev Patel) is a contestant of a game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and the question is asked, “Who’s face is on the American $100 bill?”
The host, Prem Kumar (Anil Kapoor) is certain that a slum dog in Bombay could never have seen a $100 bill, let alone identify the face on it. But to the host’s horror, Jamal, identifies the face and wins 1 million rupees.
He gets it right because earlier in the storyline he meets an old blind friend begging for alms on a street corner. The childhood friend had lost his sight through torture. Jamal hands him a 100 dollar bill and boy asks him to describe the face on the note before calling out “Benjamin Franklin!”
