Danny Boyle meets Slumdog kids Rubina and Azar in Mumbai


MUMBAI: The makers of Slumdog Millionaire met with the film’s two child stars Rubina Ali and Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail in Mumbai.

Both children lost their homes this month as city authorities cleared out parts of the slum where they lived. Rubina has been staying with relatives while Azhar has been living in a makeshift shanty.

Rafiq Qureshi, Rubina’s father stormed out of the meeting, saying they have been forgotten since the movie won eight Oscars.

Danny Boyle told reporters that they have been trying for a long time to move them into legal accommodation.
