Danny Boyle has jetted to India to help find a home for the displaced child stars of his Oscar-winning movie SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE.
The director met with several of the film's stars at the private lounge of Mumbai's JW Marriott hotel on Tuesday (26May09) as part of his ongoing efforts to provide financial aid for the young actors.
Boyle established the Jai Ho Trust last year (08) to ensure nine-year-old Rubina Ali and her co-star Azhar Ismail, 10, would receive financial backing to ensure their educations after plucking them from impoverished obscurity to star in his film.
But the children don't appear to be receiving any monetary aid - Ali was left facing life on the streets after authorities demolished her shantytown shack earlier this month (May09), days after her co-star Azhar Ismail suffered the same ordeal.
A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "Their lives do not appear to be any better."
