Finally, 'Slumdog' kids to get own homes

The two child stars of Oscar-winner Slumdog Millionaire finally have a reason to smile as Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan on Friday announced Azharuddin Ismail Shaikh and Rubina Ali will get permanent homes.
According to an official statement from the chief minister’s secretariat, the homes will be allotted from the chief minister’s discretionary quota.
The celebrity kids will be allowed to select their flats in the Malvani area of Malad suburb in northwest Mumbai.
The move comes when the children’s schools are due to open after the summer vacation and the monsoon is about to set in.
The cost of the flats, each estimated at around Rs 400,000, shall be borne by the Mumbai Regional Congress Committee (MRCC), as per the statement.
