Well, I trashed the producers for taking so long, but they finally at least got one of the child actors from Slumdog Millionaire into an apartment. It seems like it has been a year since they originally promised to find a place for Azharuddin Ismail to live and this weekend he and his family moved into a 250 square foot apartment. Yes, you read that right. 250 square feet for his entire family. It cost $42,000 which seems outrageously high and is probably the reason so many people can't afford to get out of the shantytowns. The apartment has running water and electricity and the family of course has their obligatory television all set up and ready to go although they don't have the rest of the furniture in yet.
What would we do without our televisions? "I like it here, it is really nice. But I will miss my old friends..." the actor told Reuters. "Maybe I will go and visit them once a while."
When he turns 18, the deed will go to his name. I haven't seen any word on whether Rubina Ali also got her apartment or not.
