Stars from the ghetto- in the ghetto

From the rags to riches tail slumdog millionaire-

...They are not your typical movie stars. Ten-year-old Azharuddin Moham med Ismail lives in a lean-to made of tarpaulins and blankets. Nine-year-old Rubiana Ali's home is a tiny bubble-gum pink shack. A murky open sewer runs down her narrow lane.

Plucked from one of Mumbai's teeming slums to star in the Oscar-nominated hit "Slumdog Millionaire," they are India's real slumdog millionaires...
