BEIJING, Feb. 24 (Xinhua) -- The biggest winner of the 81st Academy Awards, "Slumdog Millionaire", is to make its debut in Chinese cinemas in late March or early April.

Weng Li, spokesman of the China Film Group Corporation (CFGC) said Tuesday, it decided to import the film because "its artistic value has already been proven by the Oscars. Its theme is positive, healthy and inspirational."

"Slumdog Millionaire", a low-budget production depicting a rags-to-riches love story, went into the Oscar ceremony with 10 nominations. It ended up winning eight honors including best picture, best director and best editing.
