Found this Yahoo news that the child stars of the Oscar acclaimed movie Slumdog Millionaire slum homes' in India were recently torn down by police leaving the children homeless.
After eight Oscar awards and $326 Million in box office worlwide, what have the producers done to help these kids?
"Slumdog filmmakers say they've done their best to help the young stars. They set up a trust to ensure the children get proper homes, a good education and a nest egg when they finish high school. They also donated $747,500 to a charity to help slum kids in Mumbai.
Producer Christian Colson has described the trust as substantial, but won't tell anyone how much it contains — not even the children's parents — for fear of making the youngsters vulnerable to exploitation.
Trustee Noshir Dadrawala told the Associated Press Thursday that the families were offered temporary rental apartments last week until permanent homes can be found, but they turned them down.
Azhar's parents say the filmmakers have budgeted $30,000 to get them a new apartment — an amount they insist is inadequate in Mumbai's pricey real estate market.
"I don't want to take a house where life will be like a slum again," said Azhar's mother, Shameem Ismail. "
This is sad... and it is not far better from our country - Philippines.
