Director of break-out hit Slumdog Millionaire Danny Boyle has bought one of the film’s child stars a new home after authorities razed the slums where the actor lived. The director faced criticism for exploiting the children when news broke that they returned to extreme poverty once the crew's cameras stopped rolling. Azharuddin Ismail, 9, became homeless last month after his family was kicked out of the slums, so Boyle stepped in with a trust fund that was formed to take care of the stars until they turn 18. Boyle also wants to provide a new home for Rubina Ali, who played the young Latika, before monsoon rains begin in June. "They were given access to a world, an extraordinary and glamorous world, and they understandably want their lives to be completely transformed," Boyle said of the child stars.
