(Hong Kong – 16 June 2009) Slumdog Millionaire star Ashutosh Lobo Gajiwala and his family and friends were swept off their feet at Ocean Park today. Park mascots Whiskers and Swift gave them a warm welcome at the Main Entrance (Photo 1)

Ashutosh played the teenage Salim in the Oscar-winning movie.

Ocean Park prepared a unique and one-of-a-kind experience for Ashutosh - a dolphin encounter session at Dolphin University. (Photo 2) Ashutosh said, “Ocean Park is so great!  Everyone told me, from the minute I set foot in Hong Kong, and all the way to Macau, that if you come to Hong Kong, you’ve got to go to Ocean Park.  And what an experience!  This is the first time I have seen a dolphin. But not only that, Ocean Park has given me this chance to feel them. It’s awesome!”

The next stop is Amazing Asian Animals (Photo 3, with Le Le and Ying Ying at the back.

After seeing the giant pandas, red pandas, Chinese giant salamander and Chinese alligators, Ashutosh wrote his wish on the wishing lantern at Panda Village - “I wish I could play with the wondrous animals at Ocean Park”. (Photo 4)

Ashutosh also took the cable car to the Ocean Theatre to enjoy the spectacular dolphins and sealions show, the “Sea Dreams!”. (Photo 5)  They also visited attractions like Sea Jelly Spectacular (Photo 6), Atoll Reef, and Raging River, before bidding a fond goodbye.
