The Slumdog Millionaire children Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail, 11, and Rubina Ali Qureshi, 10, have experienced some real life issues that rival those in the movie.
Even after starring in the film, their lives were not made any better. The children had been in the news because they were getting beaten and the other almost sold (the father denies this). But now it seems that they are not being sent to school.
