What in the buttfuck is going ON here?? Today Mumbai authorities came through & crushed shanties including the home of child star Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail whose quality of life has not improved since the movie debuted.

But let’s take a minute to process this shit—Slumdog Millionaire netted 8 oscars and $326 Million at the box office!! $326 MILLION AT THE BOX OFFICE!! Why was this kid still living in a shack?!? Since the gov’t classified the housing as illegal, the family was given no advanced notice about the demolition. Azhar’s mother has been living in the shanty town for 15 years. Here’s even MORE bullshit:

From the Huffington Post

Slumdog” filmmakers say they’ve done their best to help the young stars. They set up a trust, called Jai Ho, after the hit song from the film, 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 parents _ for fear of making the children vulnerable to exploitation.

Bitch!! Give em a HOUSE!!
