Freida Pinto as "Latika (older)"

As 18-year-old Jamal Malik (Dev Patel) answers questions on the Indian version of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," flashbacks show how he got there.

Salim finds the life of crime agreeable, but Jamal scrapes by with small jobs until landing a spot on the game show.
