Madonna in Mumbai!!!
Pop superstar Madonna arrived in Mumbai on Tuesday afternoon with her family and spent the day visiting a slum and taking in some authentic south Indian food.
Madonna Louise Ciccone Ritchie reached Mumbai from Udaipur by a chartered flight at 11.30 am (IST).
Madonna accompanied by hubby and kids visited the Colaba slums. Madonna spent sometime with slum dwellers - "she just wanted to see what a slum looked like", said an eyewitness.
Soon after that, the family went to the Hotel Saurabh, a class II south Indian vegetarian speciality eatery for a quick lunch.
Madonna, 49, is expected to be in Mumbai for the next three days, according to hotel sources. However, on the record, a hotel spokesperson said: "It's all speculation."
Madonna seemed to be following in the footsteps of British pop singer Natasha Bedingfield, who during her surprise visit to Mumbai in November 2006 had spent two days in a slum in Kandivli, northwest Mumbai.
