Slumdog kids get homes!!!
Oh this makes me so happy! I was wondering what it was going to be like for these kids to have been whisked to the US, and Disneyland, only to have to return to the “slums” of Mumbai. The producers of the movie had already enrolled the kids in school, and it looks like the kiddies will be getting new homes!
Indian government authorities are providing new residences in Mumbai for Rubina Ali and Azharuddin Ismail, who portrayed the younger versions of the movie’s central characters, Latika and Salim, played as adults by Freida Pinto, 24, and Dev Latel, 18, Reuters reports.
“These two children have brought laurels to the country, and we have been told that they live in slums, which cannot even be classified as housing,” said Gautam Chatterjee, head of the state-run Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority.
