Rubina Ali, child actress from the Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire, stands inside her house as it is demolished by local authorities in Mumbai. Rubina and her co-star Azhar had an amazingly roller-coaster year as they went from their slums to the red carpet at the Oscar ceremonies and back to the heart-breaking, grim reality of their lives in Mumbai. Both Rubina and Azhar were on the streets after their homes in the Garib Nagar slum in Bandra were pulled down by Western Railway officials. But finally there was something to cheer about: both the kids did get new homes, thanks to the state government and the trust set up by the filmmakers.
