Child Star of "Slumdog Millionaire" Now Homeless
The Government in India has razed the home of one of the child stars of "Slumdog Millionaire" rendering the family homeless.
The mother of the child actor said that she did not know what would happen to her family now and that the help promised by local authorities and by the film's makers had not materialised.
The film made $200 million. Can't the movie's owners help out?
Film director Danny Boyle has strongly denied charges of exploitation. The film's makers have set up funds to pay for their education and they have been enrolled in school for the first time. They also recently announced that they will donate £500,000 to a charity which will help children living in the slums of Mumbai.
I hope Mr. Boyle and company decide to do more. What good is the charitable contribution if it doesn't help the child who helped make the movie a hit?
